Archadeck of Nova Scotia receives the highest acknowledgement of design excellence in the Archadeck franchise system by being awarded the 2015 Design Excellence Award.

Richmond, VA – March 9, 2015 – Maurice Meagher and the team at Archadeck of NS, Canada was awarded the Archadeck Outdoor Living’s top design award, which recognizes building design excellence among its franchise locations. As North America’s largest custom designer and builder of outdoor structures and spaces, Archadeck Outdoor Living has grown to a franchise network of over 50 locations across the United States and Canada.

Awarded annually, the Archadeck Design Excellence Award is awarded in different project categories including decking projects, hardscape or patio projects and porch and room projects. The winners of those categories are then entered to win the Design Excellence Award Grand Prize, which is determined by a collective vote by the Archadeck franchisee network.

“To be selected as the Grand Prize winner of the Archadeck Design Contest by my peers is a great honor,” said Maurice Meagher, the owner of the Nova Scotia location. “The highest honor any franchisee can earn is the enthusiastic endorsement by their peers.”

Mr. Meagher and the team at Archadeck of NS winning project is a stunning outdoor living space, which combined stacked stone veneer in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright, a multi-level composite deck with three conversation areas, a glassed-in balcony, a screened porch with dining area and a fireplace, and built-in floral planters.

“Despite the wrath of a hard winter, Maurice and his team were able to create a backyard masterpiece even while snowflakes fell around the residence,” stated Mike Reeder, VP of the Archadeck Outdoor Living Brand. “His level of expertise and design is an inspiration to the entire Archadeck system.”

The winning project is featured in the Archadeck Outdoor Living Design Guide and soon to be launched Archadeck Design Excellence Award photo gallery, which can be found on the company’s website at
