Beyond the Award

For every product, solution and service entered, the value of promotional exposure far exceeds the cost and time of entering.
Winners receive extra exposure and the value of touting their win to media and the market.

The development of digital solutions that deliver transformative gains in efficiency and quality in homebuilder business performance is a substantial accomplishment, worthy of recognition to drive adoption of such solutions and to show the way for future solution developers.

Likewise for innovative and on-trend finishes, structures and major systems. They don’t just magically flow through builders to homebuyers. Not only do the products themselves need to be great (offering new features, powerful benefits and substantial advantages versus alternatives), the manufacturers that produce them must engage in deep collaboration with builders, subcontractors and complementary manufacturers to succeed.

The Housing Transformation Impact Awards recognize excellence and achievement in both the digital solutions sphere and across finishes, structures and major systems product categories.

Solution developers who’ve taken on the challenge of streamlining builders’ complex business processes and manufacturers who’ve made the commitment to fully support builders in bringing new products to market—all have an opportunity to powerfully promote their products, services and process supports. Their achievements light up the sky of the homebuilding industry and shake the earth as homebuyers respond to new products, well presented and delivered with quality.
