Several production builders were honored in the first-ever Housing Innovation Awards presented last week in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Energy’s 2013 Solar Decathlon. Winners in the Challenge Home Builder Awards included New Town Builders, Garbett Homes, KB Home, and Nexus EnergyHomes.
The DOE Challenge Home Builder Awards are presented to builders that are changing the way homes are designed and constructed. The DOE Challenge Home designation is the symbol of excellence in home building. Only a select group of the top builders in the country meet the extraordinary levels of excellence and quality specified by Energy Department guidelines.
