NAHB Recognizes Sterling Homes for Custom-built Modular Home

BURLINGTON, Mass., Nov. 9, 2010 – Sterling Homes Development Corporation received a national home building accolade, winning the 2011 BSC Excellence in Home Design Award. Sterling Homes won in the Modular Home 3,001-4,000 sq. ft category for a custom modular farmhouse that the company built in Concord, MA. The honor was awarded by the Building Systems Councils (BSC) of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB)—a trade association that represents the concrete, log, modular, and panelized building system industries—at their annual awards program held in New Orleans yesterday.

The BSC Excellence in Marketing and Home Design Awards has promoted excellence in the systems-built housing industry for more than ten years. Home manufacturers, builders and industry associates were among the groups recognized. Entries are judged by a panel of industry experts with criteria including overall design, buyer appeal, exterior treatments, and other amenities that encourage sales or improve aesthetics.

“This year’s award winners like Sterling Homes prove that despite a sluggish housing market, the systems-built industry is raising the bar in residential marketing and home design concepts,” said BSC Chairman Vic DePhillips, a modular manufacturer from Moosic, Pa. “Our award winners are adding credibility to their businesses and shedding a positive light on the building systems industry as a whole.”

“It is truly an honor to win this award,” said Russell Busa, President of Sterling Homes. “Concord is not a town where homeowners typically ‘think modular’, which is why this was such a unique and successful project. We built a picturesque New England farmhouse that blends with the historic setting of the town. This award shows the hard work and vision of our dedicated team. It’s a proud day for us.”
