Every year, the area’s finest builders, remodelers, trade associates, and other industry leaders gather to celebrate the achievements and innovative advancements of their peers at the ARC Awards. This annual event, sponsored by the Dallas Builders Association, honors and recognizes the award-winning work of luxury building and remodeling professionals in a variety of categories, including Best Conceptual Design, Best CAPS Remodel, Best New Home, Custom Builder of the Year, and Remodeler of the Year, as well as Best Outdoor Living Space and Associate of the Year.
The elegant 2015 ARC Awards gala, presented in partnership with Bonded Builders Warranty Group, was held at the Westin Galleria on August 15. For the homebuilding professionals in attendance, the evening was a chance for them to trade their everyday work attire for tuxedos and evening gowns and catch up with friends and fellow industry leaders in an Academy Award-like setting. Following a cocktail hour and gourmet dinner, custom builder Tim Lansford of Luxury Homes of Texas served as the master of ceremonies as the nominees and winners were announced. Cresswell Builders won the Remodeler of the Year award, and Classic Urban Homes was named Custom Builder of the Year for the second consecutive year.
