MINNEAPOLIS, MN – C&R Flooring Inc. and Keith Waters & Associates took top honors in the residential category of the the Forest Stewardship Council’s 5th annual Designing & Building Awards.

The awards were announced at the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in Phoenix, AZ, in November. The awards celebrate the best in U.S. and Canadian green architecture and construction using FSC-certified materials – those sourced from forests managed to high environmental and social standards.

C&R Flooring and Waters won for their Portico on the Green residence, in Minnetonka, MN – the first home in the state to receive Silver Certification through the Minnesota GreenStar Pilot program.

“The exuberance of Portico on the Green’s design is contained by a strong but simple composition of wood trim and roof,” said jurist Thomas A. Fisher, Senior Project Manager with Sustainable Design Consulting, in Washington, D.C. “The Mission style wood detailing of the interior is also simple, extensive and tasteful, and almost all from sustainably managed forests.”
