Commerce Lexington Inc. has named Omni Architects the 2017 Small Business of the Year at the annual Small Business Awards Luncheon last week at Keeneland. The recipient of this year’s Legacy Award, Omni Architects was chosen for the honor from eight different category winners. The company now has the opportunity to be considered for state and national recognition through the U.S. Small Business Administration.

Co-founded by Sam Halley and Joe Williams, Omni Architects is one of Central Kentucky’s oldest and most accomplished architectural firms. Since 1975, Omni has been designing buildings that respond to its clients’ needs and aspirations, while enhancing the lives of the people who use them. The firm has crafted thoughtful designs that elevate the missions of its clients in the markets they serve.

Over the course of 42 years, Omni has been involved in over 900 projects totaling over one billion dollars in construction, which can be found throughout Central Kentucky. Its projects have earned more awards for design excellence from AIA Kentucky than any other firm in the state. It was also the first architectural firm to be honored twice as AIA Kentucky’s Firm of the Year.

Commerce Lexington Inc. began its small business awards program in 1986, recognizing 89 outstanding small businesses and nonprofit organizations since its inception. In 2010, the awards program was expanded from three categories to eight categories. This year’s award winners together have 165 years of service to our community.
