Recognized by restoration firms and insurance companies worldwide, the RIA Phoenix Awards allow companies to illustrate the skills and expertise required to restore damaged structures and contents. Winners are recognized in the trade and mainstream media, featured in C&R magazine, and are provided with a unique opportunity to promote their success to clients, potential customers, and their local communities. There are two separate distinctions of the Phoenix Award.

The Phoenix Award for Innovation in Reconstruction is awarded to an individual contractor or firm and may include some restoration, but generally requires significant rebuilding of the structure. The Phoenix Award for Innovation in Restoration is awarded to a contractor or firm for a primarily restoration or remediation of a structure and its contents and does not include major reconstruction as part of the project. All projects may be residential or commercial.

The deadline to complete your application is Feb. 8, 2017. The Phoenix Awards are open to RIA member and non-member firms that provide restoration and remediation services. All projects should have been completed within the 2016 calendar year.
