Celebrating Innovation and Excellence: The NAHB Offsite Construction Awards

Earlier this month at the National Housing Center, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) hosted an awards program that lauded leading systems-built construction projects and professionals. These awards, encompassing the Jerry Rouleau Awards for Excellence in Marketing and Home Design, shine a spotlight on NAHB members whose exemplary work sets new standards across various categories.

A New Dawn: The Innovative Product or Service Category

This year, a new category made its debut — the Innovative Product or Service award, which seeks to highlight outstanding offerings that push the boundaries of the offsite construction industry. This recognition goes to products or suppliers introducing novel elements that potentially redefine industry practices and improve overall efficiency and sustainability.

Home Design: A Spectrum of Building Systems

The awards span a variety of systems, recognizing exceptional work in log, timber, panelized, and modular constructions, as well as multifamily project designs. This year’s winners showcased the diverse application of these systems, ranging from cozy log cabins to expansive modular homes.
