Congratulations to RLF, a Winter Park architecture, engineering and interior design firm, for being selected to receive the 2010 AIA Florida Firm of the Year award. This award is given by the Florida Association of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and recognizes outstanding achievement in design, community services, education, and services to the profession and the AIA by an architectural firm.
“We are truly humbled by this honor,” said Ronald Lowry, RLF Chairman. “We place great importance on establishing enduring relationships with our clients, and this award validates the hard work our team has put into developing innovative, practical and successful solutions for our clients and their communities.”
The AIA Florida/Caribbean Honor & Design Awards Program is Florida’s most prestigious award program for architecture. In response, RLF will be featured in the fall edition of Florida/Caribbean Architect magazine. (Pretty cool, huh?)
During the past year, RLF has received many accolades for its ongoing commitment to its clients and the community. In March, the company won the prestigious Orlando Firm of the Year Award at AIA Orlando’s 2010 Awards Gala. During the celebration dinner, AIA Orlando also announced that RLF’s project for the new Veterans Affairs Medical Center located at Lake Nona’s “Medical City” received the highly esteemed Merit Award.
These awards come on the heels of RLF’s 75th anniversary celebration (yes, I said 75 years!), during which the City of Winter Park recognized RLF for its dedication to community projects and local charities, including Heart of Florida United Way, the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, Habitat for Humanity, American Cancer Society and Great Oaks Village Children’s Center.
Way to go, RLF!
