The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) named AMEK Custom Builders the 2015 National CotY award winner in the Basement Remodels over $100,000 category of its annual awards competition. The award was presented April 17 to CEO Andrew Schmidt at NARI’s Evening of Excellence reception, held in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

AMEK Custom Builders submitted its lower-level project completed in Chaska which was designed as a multi-functional family entertainment center. The area features built-in curves and high-tech electronics to automate and control the environment, fireplace and TV. More information and pictures of the project can be found here.

Contractors from seven regions nationwide vie for the annual awards. An impartial panel of judges, who are experts within the industry and associated fields, selected winners based on problem solving, functionality, aesthetics, craftsmanship, innovation, degree of difficulty and entry presentation. Earlier this year, NARI named 160 Regional CotY winners with 33 team members who advanced as finalists to the national level in the 36 categories.

NARI presents CotY awards annually to members who have demonstrated outstanding work through their remodeling projects. This year, 390 entries were submitted in the competition totaling more than $85.5 million worth of remodeling projects.

AMEK Custom Builders is an active member in the Minnesota chapter of NARI – which you can read more about here.
