Madison, Wis. (May 30, 2009) – Sweeney Construction has been selected by REMODELING magazine to join the REMODELING Big50. The Big50 awards were presented at a gala dinner at the Remodeling Leadership Conference in Alexandria, Va., on May 15, 2009. The 2009 Big50 winners are featured in the May issue of REMODELING.

Each year the REMODELING Big50 inducts 50 remodeling companies that have set exceptionally high standards for professionalism and integrity through exemplary business practices, craftsmanship and industry/community impact.

The Big50 selection process has become increasingly rigorous in recent years, and the result, REMODELING editors believe, is one of the strongest classes to date. All 2009 inductees “stood up to detailed examinations of their businesses and their books, and they all demonstrated an admirably deft ability to restructure, retrench, and flat-out hustle to remain viable in an extremely difficult economic climate,” according to the magazine.

“We are very honored to receive this distinction,” says Sweeney. “The award recognizes excellence and leadership, and we are privileged to be named to this select group of remodelers.”

REMODELING editors, columnists, industry leaders and the companies themselves make the nominations each year.  Following a lengthy evaluation and interview process, the editors select the 50 companies who exemplify the best of the industry that year, and who have something to offer other remodelers in proven practices.

REMODELING magazine, published by Hanley Wood, LLC, is the leading publication in the home improvement industry and has a readership of more than 80,000 professional remodeling contractors.
