The PHTA’s International Awards of Excellence program is one of the largest, most well-renowned design competitions in the pool and hot tub industry. These distinguished awards recognize exceptional installations of pools, spas, hot tubs, and water features that showcase the most beautiful, creative and innovative work in the industry. Each year, hundreds of entries are submitted by builders across the U.S. and the world. In 2020, the PHTA received 206 entries in 35 different categories.
The competition is open to pool, spa or hot tub builders as well as installers, designers, retailers or service companies that receive payment for the submitted project. The judging panel is comprised of industry professionals along with representatives from related fields, including architecture and landscape design.
“We are incredibly honored to receive These 2 PHTA Awards of Excellence,” says Mike Church, President of Cody Pools, Inc.. “We want to thank everyone who was involved with these projects. The team really went above and beyond to create 2 innovative and beautiful pools, and we couldn’t be prouder of the finished products.”
