November 18, 2009 will be remembered by Tandem Construction as the day our company reached a significant milestone. The Home Builders Association of Greater Chicago (HBAGC) awarded our company two prestigious Golden Key Awards and for the first time honored us with the coveted Crystal Key Award for the home we built for Mario and Julie Greco in Chicago’s Old Irving Park neighborhood. The HBAGC is the local chapter of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) which is the largest home building association in the United States. In fact, NAHB’s builder members construct about 80% of the new homes built each year. Needless to say, the project’s success would not have been possible without the contributions of our dedicated subcontractors and material suppliers who truly went above and beyond on not only this, but all of the residential and commercial projects we have built over the years. We also would like to recognize the imagination and creativity provided by the interior design firm of Suzanne Lovell, Inc. from beginning to end. Finally, we would like to thank Mario and Julie Greco for giving us the opportunity to build their new home. While this may be our first Crystal Key, it certainly won’t be our last!
