Webb Honored for Advancing Systems-Built Industry

Best in Systems-Built Housing Design and Marketing Honored

Twenty builders and manufacturers representing the concrete, log home, modular and panelized building systems were recently honored for excellence in marketing and home design by NAHB’s Building Systems Councils (BSC).

“This year’s award winners represent the best marketing and home design work in the systems-built housing market,” said BSC Chairman Gary Grossman, president and CEO of Lancaster Redevelopment Corporation of Selinsgrove, Pa. “Being recognized for this impressive work not only adds to the credibility of their businesses, their success also sheds a positive light on the building systems industry as a whole.”

The awards were presented at the annual BSC SHOWCASE that was held in Memphis, Tenn. last month.

More than 100 entries were submitted for award categories ranging from outstanding model/sales center to presentation of home plans and best design.

New categories honored this year included multifamily and green-home manufacturing.
