2009 Master Design Awards

qualified-remodeler-logoMOSAIC Group [Architects and Remodelers] (Atlanta, Ga.) wins three Master Design Awards – two in the Outdoor Living category and one in Kitchens over $100,000.

Now in its 31st year, the Master Design Awards continues to be a premier award for residential remodelers. What distinguishes this award program from others is the peer-to-peer nature of the award. Only active remodelers and designers are permitted to sit on our panel.

This year’s judging took place July 21-22 at the InterContinental Hotel, in downtown Chicago, overlooking the city. Judges were handpicked and brought in from all over the United States to give a wide variety of views and opinions on the projects. Our 2009 judging panel consisted of Michael Menn, AIA, CGR, CAPS, of Design Construction Concepts, Northbrook, Ill.; Martha Kerr, CKD, of Neil Kelly Co., Portland, Ore.; Bjorn Freudenthal, CAPS of College City Remodeling, Lakeville, Minn.; Carl Seville of Seville Consulting, Decatur, Ga.; and Sal Ferro, CR, CKD, of Alure Home Improvement, Plainview, N.Y.

Over the next 25 pages of Master Design Awards, the Gold winners are showcased along with the companies that won Silver, Bronze and Honorable Mention awards. Also, in partnership with Chrysalis, recipients of both Chrysalis and Master Design Awards for the same project are recognized with a JANUS award.

This year the Master Design Awards prouduced 22 Gold award winners, 23 Silver award winners, 22 Bronze award winners and 21 honorable mention awards. Among all of these winners, the judges then selected a Best Project above $200,000 and Best Project below $200,000. This year, the judges also selected a Vision Award for one outstanding project they felt deserved some extra kudos.
