Regional Winners Move on to the National Competition and will be Announced during the 2019 NARI Awards Reception April 12 in San Diego

(San Diego – February 6, 2019) – Jackson Design and Remodeling (JDR) announced today the company has won three 2019 Southwest Regional Contractor of the Year (CotY) Awards from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI). The CotYs are the first major industry awards program of 2019 and typically act as an indicator for the projects that will top podiums for the rest of the year. In the past, JDR’s CotY winning projects have gone on to win NKBA, ASID, Chrysalis, HGTV and Master Design awards. One of JDR’s 2018 Coty award-winning projects, a contemporary Del Mar addition, went on to receive the national Coty award as well as a Master Design award. This year, JDR’s regional wins are in the competitive categories Residential Kitchen $100,001 to $150,000, Residential Bath $75,001 to $100,000, and Universal Design – Entire House.

All regional winners automatically advance to the national CotY awards and will be honored at the Evening of Excellence reception on April 12 in San Diego, California, where the 2019 National CotY Winners will also be announced. The CotY awards are the most prestigious recognition for NARI members who have presented extraordinary remodeling projects. This year judges reviewed over 350 entries.

“It’s an honor to be recognized for our team’s hard work. This is a great way to kick off 2019,” said JDR CEO and President Todd Jackson. “We’re excited to have three projects make the next round of the competition and we look forward to the national awards program in April happening right here in our back yard! We’ll have some of the best remodeling companies from across the US coming to town for the NARI Evening of Excellence awards program and we hope to claim at least one national award and make our hometown proud.”

Contractors from seven regions around the country vie for CotY Awards each year. Judging is based on problem solving, functionality, aesthetics, craftsmanship, innovation, and degree of difficulty by an impartial panel of industry experts.

JDR’s three 2019 winning projects are:

Residential Kitchen $100,001 to $150,000

This kitchen was designed for a couple that dreamed of expressing their personality at home while retaining an ultra-clean and simple design. After thoughtful architectural planning, structural changes dramatically opened the space encompassing the kitchen, dining and living areas into one unified expanse. The kitchen is now a stunning expression of organic modernity. Abundant natural light accentuates the clean, open lines of the design. The thoughtful layout encompasses generous storage and seating while retaining a sense of organic simplicity with the island as an impressive central gathering place. The couple now enjoys welcoming friends for large gatherings in their stylishly original space.

Residential Bath $75,001 to $100,000

Designed for a couple with young children, this master bathroom in their Spanish-style home was transformed into a relaxing retreat and fulfilled their dream for an expansive, light-filled, and organized bathroom with ample storage. The new design honors the character of the home while blending rustic and modern elements. Hand-painted tile in shades of blue, the wife’s favorite color, makes a stunning impression, from the vanity sinks’ backsplash to a bold shower inlay. The couple can now choose between a roomy shower with beautiful tile design or a striking 350 lb. cast iron tub with a hand-burnished exterior and a view. Abundant storage keeps the room clean and clutter-free. The space is infused with natural light amplified by the glamorous glow of twin chandeliers.

Universal Design – Entire House

Designed for a retired couple, this custom home was built with a strategically considered design plan and thoughtful elements that will make it easier to age in place while surrounded by beautiful contemporary, minimalist design and architecture emphasizing simplicity and clean horizontal lines. A ramp on the main entry will accommodate any future accessibility needs. The living area, dining space, and kitchen are unified in an open and airy design that makes navigation easier. The kitchen integrates extra appliances, an option for aging in place when live-in help may be required. A downstairs bedroom is planned for the possibility of living on one level while an elevator near the stairs provides an alternate method of mobility. Bold yet simple, this custom home was meticulously designed and built with the close collaboration of the clients to dramatically enhance their lifestyles today and into the future.
