The 2016 International Builders’ show was held again this year in Las Vegas. Mark your calendars’, the next two years the show will be held in Orlando. The show features the latest in building products and trends. While the show features and expansive exhibit hall and educational sessions there are other parts of the show that feature showcase homes and award competitions that recognize building professionals hard work.
We are humbled to be honored this year for our projects. We put a lot of love and sweat into our projects and to be honored with awards for our work is just icing on the cake.
Best in Green (BIG) Awards was held at the IBS Live Booth in the South hall. This is the second year of a new green awards program that focuses on integration. Instead of a completely separate awards program, green and sustainable categories have been incorporated into many of NAHB’s other award programs, including the Best in American Living Awards, The Nationals, the 50+ Housing Awards, the multifamily Pillars of the Industry Awards and the Jerry Rouleau Awards for Excellence in Marketing and Home Design for systems-built homes. If you win a green or sustainable award in any of these programs, you are automatically entered to win a Best in Green Award. Best in Green categories include: 50+ Home or Community, Single-Family, Production Home, Single-Family Custom Home, Multifamily Project, Interior Project, Remodeling Project, Development, Sales and Marketing Strategy, Systems-Built Home and ICC 700 National Green Building Standard.

It spotlights the most creative and innovative builders, remodelers, architects, residential and building designers, developers, land planners and interior designers in the nation. Every year, the awards program, sponsored by NAHB Design Committee, recognizes good design in single-family and multifamily homes of all types and sizes, communities, interior design, remodeling and rental developments.
Since its inception the BALA awards have been recognized throughout the industry as the premier design awards, with past associations with Better Homes and Garden and BUILDER magazines. Professional Builder again join the NAHB Design Committee as a media sponsor for the 2015 awards cycle.
As a leader in design for home and community, the BALA awards program has grown over the years to include categories in green building, senior and student housing and affordable housing.
