The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) opened its general call for entries for the Multifamily Pillars of the Industry Awards competition. Multifamily owners and developers, builders, property managers, architects, interior designers and multifamily industry professionals are invited to enter the competition.
The awards highlight excellence in apartment and condominium design and development, interior merchandising and superior property management and marketing. Since its inception in 1990, the Pillars Awards program has earned its reputation as the most prestigious awards program of its kind.
“The Pillars Awards program is a great way to honor those in the industry who use innovative approaches to design and décor and who have the consumer in mind when building their communities,” said Steven Lawson, president of The Lawson Companies in Virginia Beach, Va., and chairman of NAHB’s Multifamily Council. “We expect to receive a wide variety of multifamily communities entered in the competition, and it’s always fascinating to see how the market varies across the country.”
All applications must be submitted online by Aug. 24, 2018. For more information, or to access the application platform, please visit the pillars website. Complete details, including eligibility requirements, categories and deadlines, can also be found there. Both NAHB members and non-members are eligible to enter. Finalists will be announced Nov. 2, 2018, and an awards luncheon will take place on Feb. 19, 2018, during the NAHB International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas.
