South Norwalk, CT, May 6, 2015 – Robert Root, Wilton’s Chief Building Official has been recognized as the 2015 Building Official of the Year by the Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Fairfield County (HBRA), a not-for-profit trade organization representing many of the area builders, remodelers, land developers and allied services associated with the real estate development industry. Root, who heads Wilton’s Building Department, was honored at the association’s annual building officials night held on May 6 at a meeting hosted by Clarke Distributors in South Norwalk. The meeting, attended by over 100 HBRA members, District 8 building official association members and their guests, was an opportunity to show support for their industry and network together on important mutual goals.

Peter Gaboriault, President of the HBRA, a local branch of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB),  representing area builders, remodelers, land developers and allied services, says the award is a way for builders to show appreciation for the work that building inspectors do guiding a project from start to finish.

“Our members are able to provide a high level of service and quality thanks to the input we receive from our county building officials,” says Gaboriault. “This night is an important opportunity for our builders, remodelers and associates to collaborate with officials from different municipalities on mutual goals.”
