The National Building Systems Councils (BSC) of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) recently honored leading manufacturers and builders in the systems-built industry with the 2012 Jerry Rouleau Awards for Excellence in Marketing and Home Design.
For more than a decade, this awards program has promoted excellence in the systems-built housing industry. This year’s awards were renamed in honor of Jerry Rouleau, a marketing authority and longtime advocate of building systems, who lost his battle with cancer earlier this year.
“Jerry lent his sharp marketing mind to the systems-built industry for more than 25 years,” said 2011 BSC Chairman Harry Junk, a leading figure in the concrete building materials industry. “It’s only fitting that we honor his contributions, and his memory, to the BSC’s marketing and home design competition.”
The 2012 awards recognize companies and projects covering a wide spectrum of the building systems industry. From diminutive cabins to sprawling estates, and interactive websites to inspirational marketing booklets, 23 winners have been announced.
“Even though the housing marketing recovery continues to be slow, this year’s award winners are a testament to residential marketing and home design concepts, and make positives strides for the building-systems industry as a whole” added Junk.
The winners will receive their awards during a special ceremony at the 2012 NAHB International Builders’ Show (IBS) on Feb. 6, 2012, in Orlando. They will also be regularly highlighted in editions of NAHB’s e-newspaper, Nation’s Building News, throughout 2012, as well as in other NAHB and independent print and online publications.
