Robert Ivy Joins The Ranks Of The Noel Polk Lifetime Achievement Recipients

The nonprofit Mississippi Institute of the Arts and Letters (MIAL) recognized Robert Ivy for the Noel Polk Lifetime Achievement Award. It would seem that this is the first time that an architect has received the Noel Park Lifetime Achievement Award. The award, is a highly coveted honor and is usually given to Mississippi associated art patrons who are noticed for their work in the art field, creation in a lifetime or backing art that’s worthy of special achievement. Robert Ivy was given this amazing award on June 2, 2018.

Before Ivy entered into the AIA in 2011, he was the editor-in-chief for Architectural Record, where he was bestowed various awards for his great achievements in the field of architecture. His leadership at the AIA has significantly enhanced the reputation of the institute on a world wide level. Special notice must be given to Mr. Ivy because it has been over 160 years since anyone has achieved such a high level of achievement. In 2010 Ivy was given the name Master Architect by the National Architecture Fraternity Alpha Rho Chi, an honorary accomplishment given to some of the worlds most well-known architects and there are very few individuals in this world who’ve achieve this level of accomplishment. The University of Arkansas, Fay Jones School of Architecture, granted Ivy the Dean’s Medal. In addition, Ivy is also known for writing Faye Jones (published by a globally known publishing house).

According to architecture magazine.com, MIAL president Nancy Laforge seems to feel that Mr. Ivy has made architecture more known to the general public and she believes this is mainly due to his stature in the community. In addition, Ms. Laforge believes that Robert Ivy is taking a well deserved spot on this great list of awarded recipients.

Robert Ivy is now an esteemed member of the Noel Polk award recipients, he’s now listed in the ranks of a limited list of individuals to get this covered award. MIAL (a privately funded foundation) created the award to give praise and notice (on an annual basis) to Mississippi individuals who’ve achieved great things. The first award was issued in 1980 and winners are picked by a jury of seven various fields of academics.

Aloha Construction Article #4

Having good ethics is something that we all should strive to obtain. Ethics is simply having strict and personal honesty. The notion is easy to understand, but most people in today’s society tend to lack this vital component of life. For those who own businesses, having good ethics will go a long way and Aloha Construction demonstrates this to the fullest. This particular general contractor has a long list of happy clients, and it has a resume of success. The family-owned business is located in Lake Zurich, Illinois, and it has been providing top-notch services since 2008.

Last year, Aloha Construction was honored with the affluent Torch Award for its brilliant ethical behavior. The Torch Award is a sought-after type of award that most companies dream of receiving. It solidifies your company’s behavior in more ways than one. The Torch Award honors those who demonstrates high standards, who demonstrates leadership and who demonstrates social responsibility. Aloha Construction was a clear-cut winner amongst a field of great competitors. The nominated companies of this subject goes through a strict screening process, and they’re judged by an independent panel. This specific award will surely not be presented to the average fly-by-night kind of business thanks to its thorough screening process. Aloha Construction is being led by its founder Dave Farbaky. Farbaky is always involved within his very own community in a number of ways. His very own charitable organization, the Farbaky Foundation, does many wonderful things like providing tickets to Chicago Bulls games and by donating brand new toys to thousands of kids in the area.

As you can see, Aloha Construction definitely practices what it preaches. It would be extremely hard trying to find a more productive general contractor than this, but this is only a small percentage of its wonderful attributes.
