The Larimer County Building Department's 'Outstanding Professionalism Awards' program which honored contractors, architects and engineers for teamwork and customer-focused service and who provided a quality product to citizens in the unincorporated areas of Larimer County. The recipients demonstrated quality and professionalism by their knowledge of the Larimer County Building Code; clarity during the permit application process; consistent compliance with plan specifications; on-site work quality; and, timely inspection requests and corrections. Their contribution and achievements provide quality construction and safety to Larimer County citizens and property owners.
Larimer County did not use to have a contractor licensing program and the county building official knew citizens had concerns about contractors' track records. The County recognized construction professionals who were doing an outstanding job in an effort to provide more information to citizens. Now that the County adopted a contractor licensing program, as of October 2009, we no longer have the professionalism award program.
