The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) named 2017 National Contractors of the Year (CotY) in 37 categories at its annual Evening of Excellence on April 7. Shakopee-based, Mom’s Design Build (formerly Mom’s Landscaping & Design) earned three national titles at the Scottsdale event. That makes Mom’s the winningest design-build landscaping and remodeling contractor not only in Minnesota but throughout the United States. The same three Mom’s projects received NARI North Central Regional CotY honors earlier this year. Four Mom’s projects won Minnesota CotYs last year and one scored a national title. Some 172 regional CotY finalists vied for the 37 national trophies.
A total of five Minnesota companies received national awards across seven project type/value categories this year. Minnesota tied with Texas for the most awards from the 172 projects that were entered. The judges evaluated projects based on identifying and meeting clients’ needs, functional and aesthetic enhancements, innovation, craftsmanship and degree of difficulty. Content Craftsmen helped Mom’s and Anchor Builders with their winning presentations.
