Kirkland's Natural & Built Environments, a company that specializes in developing sustainable homes, was named a finalist for a King County Executive's Small Business Award on Wednesday, Sept. 5.
Awards are given in seven categories that recognize different aspects of small business, such as rural small business or minority owned small business. This is the second year the awards will be given out.
Natural & Built Environments was named a finalist in the Green/Sustainable Small Business of the Year category.
“Last year’s awards were a great way to introduce people to our diverse local economy, and this year’s awards will be even better as we showcase how small businesses create jobs in our region,” said King County Executive Dow Constantine in a press release.
130 nominations were received from 42 Award Partners – chambers of commerce, cities and business organizations across the county.
More than 250 representatives from throughout the county are expected to be in attendance when the winners are announced at the awards program on Wednesday, Oct. 10, from 7:15 to 9:00 a.m. at Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue.
