RIA is accepting applications for the 2017 Phoenix Awards for Innovation in Restoration and Innovation in Reconstruction. The deadline has been extended to Monday, Feb. 13, 2017. The Phoenix Awards are presented each year at the RIA International Restoration Convention & Industry Expo to recognize achievement in the industry and the winning projects exemplify the skills and talents required to return a structure to pre-loss condition.

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.
