About Collins & Co.

Awards and Recognition

In November of 1997, Collins & Co. became the first contractor in Connecticut to be certified by the National Association of Homebuilding Research Center (NAHB). The program certifies contractors only after they have successfully established a recognized quality system, effectively trained their employees, and passed a series of stringent criteria. "Collins & Co. passed all our qualifications and have shown an extreme concern for high quality every step of the way," explained Tom Kenney from the NAHB Research Center. "In so doing, they have been awarded certified contractor status from our organization."

In 1999, Collins & Co. was chosen as the NAHB Certified Contractor of the year. This prestigious award recognized our professionalism and industry leadership among all of the certified contractors in the United States. Collins & Co. was chosen "because they continuously receive high marks in leadership and management of the program, satisfying customer needs, hiring and developing quality people, and actively promoting the program in their community," says Glen Singer, manager of customer programs at Certainteed.
