DARIEN, Conn. -- Peter Solheim, Darien’s Chief Building Official, has been recognized as the 2016 Building Official of the Year by the Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Fairfield County.

Solheim, who heads Darien’s Building Department, was honored at the association’s annual building official’s night on May 4 at a meeting hosted by Clarke Distributors in South Norwalk.

The meeting was attended by HBRA members and guests, the Town of Darien First Selectman Jayme Stevenson, the Darien Building Department and District 8 building official association members.

Peter Gaboriault, President of the HBRA, a local branch of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), said 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 town and city building officials,” said Gaboriault. “This night is always an important opportunity for our builders, remodelers, and associates to collaborate with officials from different municipalities on mutual goals.”

HBRA is a not-for-profit trade organization representing many of the area's builders, remodelers, land developers and allied services associated with the real estate development industry. Celebrating its 70th Anniversary this year, the HBRA of Fairfield County is a consumer and commercial resource for home building, remodeling and land development in Fairfield County.
