Atlanta home builder Dan O’Dwyer has been awarded two of the home building industry’s highest honors.
The Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association named O’Dwyer Builder of the Year and HomeAid Atlanta awarded O’Dwyer Builder Captain of the Year. “Being honored by these two groups leaves me humbled,” O’Dwyer said. “I’ve always been focused on service, giving back and doing the right things, but I never expected to receive either of these awards as the result!”
A graduate of Michigan State University with a degree in construction management, O’Dwyer has worked in the home-building business for nearly three decades. In 1992, he founded his own homebuilding company - O’Dwyer Homes in Alpharetta, Ga. The company builds more than 200 new homes annually; the company’s products include single-family homes and active-adult luxury ranch villas, starting at $200,000 upwards to more than $500,000. Ann Carey of HomeAid Atlanta states, “I nominated O’Dwyer for Builder of the Year, not only because of his work with HomeAid Atlanta, but also because of the impression he made on me for his genuine caring and involvement.” “Dan O’Dwyer cares actively about his profession,” Carey said. “There’s just one Dan O’Dwyer.
Business associates and members of the church choir know the same guy – someone whose devotion to excellence and sense of fair play are part of everything he does. Whether building shelters for homeless women, working on projects at his church, or mentoring youngsters through coaching, Dan is never afraid to dig deeper.”
Dan O’Dwyer and O’Dwyer Homes actively support a number of community groups, organizations and causes around Atlanta. In 2005, Dan volunteered as a Builder Captain for the HomeAid Atlanta program and led the renovation of The Drake House, two apartment buildings for homeless single women with young children. More than 100 volunteers donated thousands of hours to The Drake House under his leadership. O’Dwyer served on the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association (HBA) Board of Directors from 1994 to 1997 and from 2000 to present. Currently, he serves on the Board of Directors of the National Association of Home Builders and is a member of the Professional Builders Cooperative.
He is an active member of the Certified Professional Home Builder program and serves on its Certification Committee.
O’Dwyer has been an active member of the HBA since 1992 and has been involved with the HBA since 1987.
O’Dwyer Homes builds both Easy Living and EarthCraft Homes. He has been a Certified Professional Home Builder since 1998.
