WASHINGTON, May 15 – The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) 55+ Housing Industry Council is now accepting applications for the 2018 Best of 55+ Housing Awards, which honor excellence in building design, marketing and lifestyle of housing for the mature adult. The awards also honor individual success by highlighting two 55+ Housing Industry Council members–one as Builder of the Year and one as Associate of the Year.
New this year, the awards program has been revamped to simplify the categories and the entry process, and fees were reduced to make it easier to enter multiple categories. The awards are now grouped under five primary categories:
· 55+ Architectural Design
· 55+ Interior Design
· 55+ Marketing
· 55+ Lifestyle
· 55+ Builder or Associate Awards
Qualifying gold-level winners for the community categories in 55+ Architectural Design are automatically entered for the top prestigious award–55+ Community of the Year. This award recognizes the community that demonstrates excellence in innovative design and construction, lifestyle and marketing, and reflects the attention to detail that signals a superior community.
“In addition to simplifying our overall award categories, we have also expanded the interior design category, knowing that interior design is popular with builders, designers and consumers,” said Steve Moore, chair of the 55+ Housing Awards subcommittee. “We look forward to seeing all the great projects that are entered for the awards program this year.”
All builders, developers, marketers and designers of 55+ housing are invited to enter this prestigious awards competition. The winners will be announced Jan. 9, 2018, during the NAHB International Builders’ Show in Orlando, Fla.
