Pembroke, NH, United States, 2008/12/17 - Epoch Homes, a leading Green Custom Modular Manufacturer was awarded first place in the 2009 Excellence in Home Design for homes between 2,301 sq. ft. and 4,000 sq. ft., and for homes over 4,001 sq. ft by the NAHB’s Building Systems Council.
The Building Systems Councils (BSC) honored more than 20 industry leaders—representing concrete, log, modular, and panelized building systems—at their annual BSC Excellence in Marketing and Home Design awards program last month. In the modular home category, there are three awards: homes up to 2,300 sq. ft., homes between 2,301 sq. ft. and 4,000 sq. ft., and homes over 4,001 sq. ft. Epoch Homes took first place in both the upper categories. Last year, Epoch took first place in the category Modular Homes over 4,001 sq. ft.
John Ela, Epoch CEO and owner stated, “Epoch has always been a leader in pushing the design envelope. We built the largest modular home ever built, a 33 module mansion in Greenwich CT that was more than 16,000 sq. ft.“ He added that Epoch “will continue to expand our design capabilities and also focus on the need to build “Green” to preserve our natural resources and reduce the impact of housing on the environment. It is an honor to be recognized for building beautiful green homes.”
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. The winners were announced at an awards luncheon in Memphis, Tenn., 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 represent the best marketing and home design work in the systems-built housing market,” said BSC Chairman Gary Grossman, president and CEO of Lancaster Redevelopment Corp. “Being recognized for this impressive work not only adds to the credibility of their businesses; their success also sheds a positive light on the building systems industry as a whole.”
These, along with other award winning homes can be seen online.
Epoch’s award winning homes (epochhomes.com) will also be featured in the January/February edition of Building Systems Magazine. The projects will also be on display at the 2009 International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas.
