Log home manufacturer Southland Log Homes received a national home building accolade, capturing the Outstanding Model/Sales Center Award in the 2011 BSC Excellence in Home Design and Marketing Awards program.
The honor was awarded by the Building Systems Councils (BSC) of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB)—a trade association that represents the concrete, log, modular, and panelized building system industries—at their annual awards program November 8, 2010. Sponsored by the NAHB Building Systems Councils, the BSC Excellence in Marketing and Home Design Awards has promoted excellence in the systems-built housing industry for more than ten years. All winners were announced at an awards luncheon in New Orleans, held in conjunction with the BSC SHOWCASE event—the leading trade show and conference based centered on the systems-built housing industry. Home manufacturers, builders and industry associates were among the groups recognized.
“This year’s award winners like Southland Log Homes prove that despite a sluggish housing market, the systems-built industry is raising the bar in residential marketing and home design concepts,” said BSC Chairman Vic DePhillips, a modular manufacturer from Moosic, Pa. “Our award winners are adding credibility to their businesses and shedding a positive light on the building systems industry as a whole.”
The annual BSC Excellence Awards are judged by a panel of industry experts and companies like Southland Log Homes were given praise for the quality of their submittals. “It is truly an honor to receive the BSC Excellence Award for Outstanding Model/Sales Center,” said company CEO, Ken Sekley. “At Southland Log Homes, we strive to provide innovative, practical housing solutions using systems-built technologies. This award shows the hard work and vision of Southland Log Homes dedicated employees. It is a proud day for me and for Southland Log Homes.”
Awardees were recognized for excellence in achievement in several marketing and design categories and covered a range of concrete, log, modular and panelized homes. There were scores of entries submitted for award categories ranging from Outstanding Model/Sales Center, to Presentation of Home Plans and Best Web site. Award winners were announced to a crowd of nearly 200 systems-built industry professionals at the awards luncheon. Winners received plaques to commemorate their efforts. They will be featured in upcoming editions of NAHB’s e-newspaper, Nation’s Building News. Some projects will also be on display on the BSC Awards Wall at the 2011 International Builders’ Show in Orlando.
