Reston, VA (PRWEB) January 29, 2013
On January 12th, Synergy Design & Construction joined over 200 local remodeling professionals at the Dulles Hilton for the NARI Metro DC chapter’s Contractor of the Year (CotY) awards ceremony. Held every year in January, the gala event honors member with Finalist, Merit, and Grand awards in over 30 categories. The 3rd-largest NARI chapter in the US, NARI Metro DC has traditionally received the largest volume of CotY project entries of any chapter. Award categories range from “Creative Solutions Under $15,000” to “Custom Home Over $1,000,000,” with many awards for kitchens, baths, green and commercial design in between.
This year, Synergy D&C, a design-build firm located in Reston, is honored to receive the Grand award for Commercial Interior for the Chasin’ Tails crawfish restaurant, a new Arlington hotspot whose completely remodeled space opened in April 2012.
From the day the Chasin’ Tails owners approached Synergy, Mina Fies, founder and CEO, and her team worked tirelessly to transform the retail space at 2200 N. Westmoreland Street into a unique and eye-catching space worthy of its uber-visible corner location. The restaurant serves iconic Cajun recipes and crawfish imported from Louisiana, so the team developed an “urban bayou” design scheme, mixing wood accents with a bold color palette and flashy New Orleans artwork for a fun and upbeat feel.
After the design process was complete, Synergy moved right into construction as the general contractor responsible for the entire build-out. “We couldn’t be more excited about our award for Chasin’ Tails,” says Fies. “The new interior is absolutely jaw-dropping. It was a fun project, we had wonderful clients, and it’s been amazing to see the transformation of the space from the outdated café that it was to this hip restaurant.”
The 2012 Grand award for Commercial Interior will be the third CotY award in Synergy D&C’s portfolio, joining a Merit award for “Residential Kitchen $50,000 to $100,000” in 2011, and a Grand Team award for “Residential Interior $250,000 and Under” for a finished basement in 2010.
