In its sixth year, the awards program received a record 115 entries.Twenty winners and eighteen honorable mentions received recognition at an awards breakfast ceremony on Friday, October 25th at the Hyatt Regency, Louisville, KY. Entries were judged on project intent, design, quality of construction and craftsmanship, compatibility with related construction materials and systems, construction innovation, detailing and overall design excellence. 

New this year, HNA launched the first HNA Humanitarian Project Award to recognize those contractors that demonstrate overwhelming generosity and support of their community through hardscape projects. This years’ award was presented to Heart of Texas Landscape and Irrigation of Belton, Texas who donated 100% of labor and materials for a special 3-day backyard makeover as a Mother’s Day surprise for Fort Hood’s Military Spouse of the year, Marily Considine. The Considine family has bravely served the United States. The husband is currently serving his 3rd tour in Afghanistan while the wife has battled and won a fight with breast cancer. This project was featured on NBC’s The Today Show.
