Nice-Nortek - Builder Awards

“Selecting the winners of our inaugural Builder Awards was extremely difficult because so many accomplished and creative builders utilized our products, programs, and services to produce amazing, seamlessly integrated projects,” says Bret Jacob, director of builder services at Nice/Nortek Control. “We congratulate the 2021 winners for demonstrating their true innovation and greatness in this category by delivering the best smart homes to their customers. We look forward to recognizing many more Builders and Integrators in the future.”

“The ongoing support we receive from Nice/Nortek Control’s Builder Services Team has contributed to our continued growth and success in significant ways,” says Todd Polifka, award recipient and president of Custom One Homes in Minnesota. “From world-class collateral customized with our logo and information, to major initiatives like design center support, the Nice/Nortek Control Builder Program has been vital in delivering the new smart home technologies our customers seek. Being able to fully showcase the capabilities that Nice/Nortek Control offers makes it simple for homebuyers to select the smart home technologies they desire.
