S.T.A.R. Awards – the Spotlight Trophy for the Advancement of Roofing – is an awards program designed by FRSA to recognize members’ unique and outstanding projects. A panel evaluates the entries for inclusion and outstanding performance in each category.
This year, there were 31 submissions for placement in one of four categories: Low Slope, Steep Slope, Community Service and Craftsmanship. Three industry judges – Jim Brauner, Brauner Safety Services, Pompano Beach, Joe Williams, RRC, AIA, A/R/C Associates Inc., Orlando and Mike Silvers, CPRC, Silvers Systems Inc. and FRSA Technical Director, St. Petersburg – spent the better part of a day reviewing the projects. Judging criteria includes, but not limited to aesthetics, special circumstances, unique project design, complexity of project, workmanship, teamwork, testimonials and creative problem solving. The judges use before, in-progress and completed pictures and videos to assist in the process.
Below is a list of the top 11 projects in alphabetical order by company. Next month we’ll announce the winners in each category and highlight the Shining Star Award – the best of the best from this year’s project submissions. Read More.
