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 of three judges evaluates and selects three recipients from each category.
This year, there were 29 submissions for placement in one of four categories: Low Slope, Steep Slope, Hurricane Response and Craftsmanship. The judges – Jim Brauner, Brauner Safety Services, Aventura, Joe Williams, RRC, AIA, A/R/C Associates Inc., Orlando and Mike Silvers, CPRC, Silvers Systems Inc. and FRSA Technical Director, St. Petersburg – spent a day reviewing the projects. Judging criteria included aesthetics, special circumstances, unique project design,
complexity of project, workmanship, teamwork, testimonials and creative problem solving. The judges used before, in-progress and completed pictures and videos to assist in the process.
Below are the top 10 projects in alphabetical order by company. First, Second and Third Place will be announced at the 101st Annual Convention Thursday Evening at the STAR Awards Reception preceding the Officer Installation Dinner. The Shining STAR Award – the “Best of the Best” – which is the project the judges selected as the overall top project, will also be revealed that evening. Read more.
