Have a renovation, some new construction, or another local building project that you’re proud of and want to bring some attention to? Applications are now being accepted for the 2018 Golden Hammer Awards for projects completed since January 1, 2017.

Since that time the Better Housing Coalition ran the wards for a few years and now Historic Richmond is running the show.
