The S.A. Walters Award for Systems-Built Achievement is the highest honor one can receive in our business. It recognizes a dedication to excellence, advancement of the industry and contributions to the Building Systems Councils.
He teaches classes to building and code officers and was feet on the ground in helping to rebuild communities after Hurricane Sandy. Norm has also spoken at several of my Builder Breakfasts and Boot Camps.
Congratulations to one of the finest people I have ever known in this industry and thank you BSC for recognizing his endless achievements.
ABOUT THE BSC: The Building Systems Councils of the National Association of Home Builders is made up of manufacturer, builder, and associate members who advocate building with concrete, log, timber, modular, or panelized systems. Systems-built homes are constructed to the same code standards and reflect the same, and often enhanced, quality levels as any site-built construction. Why systems-built? They are completed in a fraction of the time, with a fraction of the waste, which can significantly reduce costs. Many systems-built homes also are inherently environmentally friendly adding a “green” label to the finished home.
ABOUT NAHB: The National Association of Home Builders is a Washington-based trade association representing more than 140,000 members involved in home building, remodeling, multifamily construction, property management, subcontracting, design, housing finance, building product manufacturing and other aspects of residential and light commercial construction. NAHB is affiliated with 800 state and local home builders associations around the country. NAHB’s builder members will construct about 80 percent of the new housing units projected for this year.
