Awards and Recognition
Each year the Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Central Connecticut recognizes those members that are doing exceptional work in their business, in the community and for the HBRA. Through these awards we honor and recognize those individuals who have consistently dedicated themselves to efforts that strengthen the residential construction industry in Hartford, New Haven, Middlesex and Tolland Counties, improve the quality of life for their clients, and make the dream of home ownership a reality for everyone.
