Members of the housing industry recently came together for Housing First Minnesota’s Building Industry Gala (BIG Night). This year’s event was hosted at Mystic Lake Center with more than 700 members of the industry in attendance.
As part of the annual BIG Night, Housing First Minnesota awarded its coveted Builder of the Year, Remodeler of the Year and Associate of the Year, among a spread of dozens of other awards. Hendel Homes was awarded Builder of the Year; Revision, LLC was awarded Remodeler of the Year; and Minnesota Construction Law Services, PLLC was awarded Associate of the Year.
Housing First Minnesota’s annual recognition of industry members is based on several criteria, including recognizing firms that exemplify the highest standards of business as judged by their peers and customers.
“Homebuilding is truly a collaborative effort of many companies and individuals, and these awards are a celebration of how the industry works together to create homes for Minnesota families,” said James Vagle, CEO of Housing First Minnesota. “Now more than ever it’s important we recognize and reflect on the important work we do creating communities in our state.”
Other awards presented at the event included the Robert L. Hanson Lifetime Achievement Awards, which were presented to Gary Horkey of Key Land Homes and Ron Clark of Ron Clark Construction and the Legislator of the Year Awards which were presented to Sen. Jeff Howe (R-Rockville) and Rep. Steve Elkins (DFL-Bloomington).
The Bennie Award for excellence in neighborhood design and construction went to Charles Cudd Co., LLC for its Shores of Marsh Lake neighborhood in Victoria.
Additionally, 20 Reggie Awards and 18 Remodeler of Merit Awards were presented to builder and remodeler companies throughout the event.
