Case wins national award
Professional Remodeler magazine has awarded Case Design/Remodeling Indy a Silver award in the Outdoor Living Under $100,000 category of the 2012 Professional Remodeler Design Awards. Designed for a Carmel home, the winning project included a screened porch addition, deck expansion and pergola.
This is the first time Case has won a national design award.
“We were competing against large, national remodeling companies in this category,” said Case president and owner Larry Greene. “We are proud to have our design/build efforts recognized at this level. The judges were impressed with the transformation we were able to achieve.”
Projects were evaluated on construction quality, overall design, creativity and problem solving. The winning projects were featured in the October issue of Professional Remodeler.
Case has completed many Zionsville projects and supports several Zionsville organizations, including the Zionsville show choirs and schools, and is a member of the Greater Zionsville Chamber of Commerce. Case Indy has captured several top awards for the best remodeling projects in the area by the Builders Association of Greater Indianapolis and has been named one of the largest full-service remodelers in the country by Remodeling Magazine and Qualified Remodeler.
