In early May our team traveled to Dover on a Friday night decked out in our 1920’s attire to attend the Roaring 20’s Regal Awards presented by the Home Builders Association of Delaware. The Regal awards highlight the best in both sales and marketing within the building industry of Delaware.
This year our company was awarded the Best Green Built Home in Delaware. We were presented this award for our model The Kingfisher in Breakwater located in Lewes. The Kingfisher was designed to provide our buyers with a home that is energy efficient without sacrificing style and livability. The estimated annual utility usage for The Kingfisher model is only $2,099 while a similarly sized built-to-code house would be over $4,000 per year. The Kingfisher is the first home in Delaware built according to the EPA’s stringent Indoor Air Plus Program specifications and it earned the NAHB Green Certified GOLD rating. The home also scored a 48 on the HERS scale.
We are ecstatic that our hard work and innovative building science practices were recognized through this award. Not only does the Kingfisher provide outstanding high performance features it was also was designed to maximize the usable living space while enhancing the transition between indoor and outdoor living. If you haven’t already you should make a trip to Breakwater and check out the Kingfisher and its unique courtyard living space.
The Best Green Built Home wasn’t the only award that we brought home this year. Other awards for marketing campaigns, interior merchandising and design were also received, and we had a few individuals recognized for their outstanding performance in 2011. Jamie Hudson received the Sales Director of the Year, Larry Gee received the Selections Coordinator of the Year, and Adam Pettengell was honored as the Rookie Sales Person of the Year! Congratulations guys!
