Integrity Windows Seeks Nominations for Ninth-Annual Red Diamond Achiever Awards Honoring Outstanding Builders, Remodelers and Architects

Winning Builders and Remodelers, Chosen by a Judging Panel That Includes Home Improvement Celebrity Bob Vila, Gain From Extensive Integrity Marketing Campaign to Showcase the Best and Brightest

FARGO, ND -- (Marketwire) -- 02/07/13 -- Windows and doors by Integrity from Marvin Windows and Doors are known for being tough, beautiful and Built to Perform. The Integrity Red Diamond Achiever Awards celebrate those same traits in the builders, remodelers and architects who use Integrity products, and now the window and door maker is accepting nominations for the 2013 award program.

Submit your nominations today: Integritywindows.com/RedDiamondAchievers

"The Integrity Red Diamond Achiever Awards recognize builders, remodelers and architects whose work exemplifies outstanding design, innovation and sustainability," said Becky Felling, director of marketing for Integrity Windows and Doors. "This is our ninth annual award program, and we're taking a new approach that better reflects the variety of ways Integrity windows and doors are used."

New this year, builders, remodelers and architects can nominate themselves, and as always, Integrity's nationwide network of independent dealers and distributors will be asked for their nominations. Winners will be chosen from among nominations for outstanding residential and commercial projects. Also new this year is the People's Choice award, in which an open online vote will determine which of the judge's winners will earn this special honor.

This year's judges are Bob Vila, home improvement expert and TV star; Patrick O'Toole, editorial director for Professional Builder, Professional Remodeler and HousingZone.com; JoAnne Liebeler, producer and host of several home improvement TV shows; Shawn McCadden, an award-winning remodeler, consultant, speaker and columnist; and Christine Marvin, director of marketing for Marvin Windows and Doors.

Winning projects will be determined based on responses to the following questions, as well as the availability of compelling, high-quality project photography:

  • Why did you choose Integrity products for this project?
  • How did Integrity products help you overcome a TOUGH building challenge? (Consider potential obstacles such as schedules, difficult lots, climate challenges, expenses, severe weather zone problems, or new constructions crews)
  • How did the project fit into its surroundings from a beauty and aesthetics standpoint?

Winners will receive a trip for two to Minneapolis, followed by a day-trip to the Marvin and Integrity headquarters in Warroad, Minn., for the award ceremony -- with dinner and hotel included. All winners will also benefit from an extensive Integrity marketing program, including localized news releases and media outreach, printed case study sell-sheets, email marketing, online outreach to popular blogs and news sites, and social media visibility.

"It was truly an honor to be chosen as one of last year's Red Diamond Achiever Award winners," said Ann Lathrop of Sellars Lathrop Architects. "We constantly strive to create projects with style, creativity and efficiency, all while trying to meet our clients' tight budgets. This award, and our continued use of Integrity products, has given us confidence to pursue our design and sustainability goals as well as elevate our firm's reputation."

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
