Industry Excellence Awards

START PLANNING YOUR PROJECTS FOR 2019!

2019 logo3

On February 6, 2019, SPFA will host the Industry Excellence Awards Luncheon as part of the Sprayfoam Show 2019 Convention & Expo. There will be awards in several categories for projects that demonstrate excellence in our industry. A panel of industry experts will adjudicate the selection process through a blind judging process. Judges will not know to whom each of the entries belong, therefore the judging will be solely based on the merit of the project according to awards guidelines.

Submit

To be eligible for an award, projects must follow the following criteria:

  1. Nominations can be made by any SPFA member. Contractor nominees must be SPFA members to be entered into the contest.
  2. The project must have been completed between December 1, 2017 and November 30, 2018.
  3. ALL NOMINATIONS MUST BE RECEIVED BY December 7, 2018 EXTENDED TO DECEMBER 17, 2018.
  4. Pictures (preferably digital) are required.
    • Note all photographs must show OSHA Compliant Work Environments
    • signed release must be emailed to Mickey Riesenberg or faxed to 703-222-5816 for all photographs submitted

The awards will be presented for 1st and 2nd place in the following categories: 

Residential Enclosure SPF Spray foam insulation installed in a residential or multi-family dwelling in assemblies such as interior or exterior surfaces of walls, beneath floors, ceilings, under roof decks, unvented attics, basements, crawlspaces, under-slab or exterior below-grade
Commercial Enclosure SPF Spray foam insulation installed in a commercial, institutional or industrial building in assemblies such as interior or exterior surfaces of walls, beneath floors, ceilings, under roof decks, unvented attics, basements, crawlspaces, under-slab or exterior below-grade
Roof SPF < 40,000 ft sq Spray foam roofing systems (foam and coatings) installed on the top surface of a low-slope or sloped roof deck on a residential or commercial building where the total sprayed area is less than 40,000 SF.
Roof SPF > 40,000 ft sq Spray foam roofing systems (foam and coatings) installed on the top surface of a low-slope or sloped roof deck on a residential or commercial building where the total sprayed area is greater than 40,000 SF.
Specialty Applications Novel or non-traditional applications of SPF insulation or roofing systems not addressed by the four categories above. These can include applications such as underground piping, storage tanks, theatrical stage sets, etc. 
Elastomeric Roof Coatings Application of elastomeric roof coatings [only] on new roof installations. This category is limited to elastomeric coatings defined in SPFA-102.

The SPFA reserves the right to change the category to which a project has been submitted if the SPFA determines that there is a category that more closely represents the nature of the project. 

Submissions are requested and encouraged from across the membership. While all submitted projects are proud examples of excellence, there may be a case where one company has multiple projects submitted in the same awards category. Should submissions from the same company qualify as both winner and runner up within the same category, the runner-up position will be reassigned to the next highest-judged project. The likelihood of this happening is very slim, but SPFA desires transparency on this issue. The awards program is intended to highlight exceptional projects across the industry and in the benevolent interest of doing so, SPFA believes this policy reinforces diversity and broad recognition, while encouraging and empowering a wide selection of companies to participate.
