Armada Hoffler Wins CoVa Best of Business Awards


Each year, CoVa BIZ Magazine recognizes local businesses for their positive contributions to the community. After an extensive selection process, Armada Hoffler was recognized for six CoVa Best of Business Awards. Armada Hoffler received three company awards and three members of our team received individual awards. 

CoVa BIZ established the Best of Business Awards in 2017 to companies, services and individual people who make doing business in Hampton Roads exceptional. Every year since then, the publication invites the local business community to cast their vote for the businesses in the region they find to be most trusted, effective and innovative.

For 2022, Armada Hoffler is recognized for Gold Level awards in the following categories:

  • Local Company with a National Presence
  • General Contractor
  • Commercial Builder

We have received Best of Business Awards in the Best Commercial Builder category since 2018 and Best General Contractor since 2019. 

The three individuals being recognized for Best of Business Awards include Dan Hoffler, Lou Haddad and Sam Boone.
