TAMPA, Fla. (PRWEB) February 16, 2018
During the 2018 NAHB 2018 International Builders' Show® (IBS), Alvarez Homes received awards from two national organizations, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and popular website Houzz, according to company president Bobby Alvarez. NABH awarded for Best in Green and Sustainable Building, while Houzz presented a Best in Design award to the company for the 5th consecutive year.
The Best in Green Single-Family Custom Home award was associated with the Alvarez Homes’ Florencia design, the company’s first model/inspiration home in 15 years. Located in Avila Golf and Country Club’s final enclave of 12 homesites, this two-story 3,550-square-foot residence, built in a Spanish-mission revival style, features three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a one-bedroom casita.
The Florencia, which has already been sold, represents Alvarez New Concepts, launched in 2009 to create a collection of energy and resource-efficient homes, certified by the Florida Green Building Coalition and Energy Star rated. “People liked the courtyard because it offered much more privacy for the pool area, rather than a backyard pool, and the added convenience of the casita’s separate guest quarters. And, as with all of our homes, we include the quality, contemporary conveniences and attention to detail that we customers have come to expect from us,” explained Alvarez.
Alvarez New Concepts homes incorporates forward thinking green building practices such as tight building envelopes to effectively seal the home, insulated low-E impact glass, all core-filled block construction for excellent temperature and sound insulation, and smart-home technology that controls access, temperature, lights, video entry access that can be controlled from a smart phone, tablet or computer.
The Best in Design award from Houzz is a testament to the company’s commitment to excellence in every aspect of custom home building. This year’s award will join those received in the four previous years. Headquartered in Palo Alto, Calif. – with international offices in London, Berlin, Sydney, Moscow, Tel Aviv and Tokyo -- Houzz is the leading platform for home remodeling and design, online or from a mobile device.
