For more than 40 years, local builders have coveted the Reggie Award statue more than any other. And for 20 years Associates and Builders have entered the Trillium Awards together to showcase their successful partnerships. Winners are selected by judging teams of Builders and Associates who visit homes within their category and meet together to select the best example of excellence in design, construction quality and value. Reggie Awards are given to the builder.
The Trillium Awards were established to honor our Associates for their partnership with Builders. As Reggie-winning homes are judged the very best, the Trillium Awards are given to all entered participating Associates in a Reggie-winning home.
