Norton Businessman Receives Contractor of the Year Award
Miller Construction Company received the Silver Contractor of the Year (CotY™) Award for its updating of a 1970s era Mansfield kitchen.
Norton-based Miller Construction Company, Inc. (MCC) has added another accolade to its growing collection.
The 24-year-old contracting company, owned by Dave Miller, CR, of Norton, received the prestigious Silver Contractor of the Year (CotY) Award from the Eastern Massachusetts Chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (EM-NARI) at the organization’s annual Evening of Excellence in November. The award, MCC’s 12th since 2004, was presented for the 2012 renovation of a 12’x14’ kitchen in a colonial home in Mansfield. The honor was in the category of “Kitchen Remodel Under $50,000.”
The project consisted of gutting the original 1970s era kitchen, removing the cabinets, appliances and flooring, and tearing down a wall between the kitchen and dining room. MCC then updated and renovated the space by installing new maple cabinets with a cranberry finish, a Crema Bordeaux granite countertop, backsplash and island countertop, new under-cabinet and recessed lighting, a new tile floor, and new stainless steel appliances. Miller created the preliminary layout and fine-tuned the details with a professional kitchen designer.
Miller, whose professional home improvement company received a National CotY Award in 2011 and Gold CotY Awards from EM-NARI for Entire House Remodels Under $250,000 in 2010 and 2004, was grateful to receive the Silver award in 2012.
“It’s an honor to be recognized for your work,” Miller said. “Miller Construction Company prides itself on doing good work in a timely fashion. To have that backed up with recognition from your professional colleagues feels great!”
MCC’s award-winning project dramatically altered the Mansfield home’s appearance.
“Even though we didn’t change the size of the kitchen, it feels bigger because we removed the wall (between the kitchen and the dining room),” Miller observes. “It allowed the homeowner to put in an island and a wine refrigerator under it, and it gave them more cabinet space.”
From demolition through painting, the entire kitchen remodeling took eight weeks to complete.
