HBA of Greater Austin members take home state-wide awards from Texas Association of Builders

The Texas Association of Builders (TAB) announced and presented the 2018 Star Awards winners on Thursday, Aug. 9 at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas. The highly-coveted Star Awards are given annually in conjunction with the Sunbelt Builders Show™ to recognize excellence in all areas of the home building industry. More than 500 entries were submitted for consideration for this year’s awards. Entries were judged by industry experts from across the nation, including Aaron Crowe (Benton, Ark.), Mike Goodrich (Beaverton, Ore.), Gretchen Palmer (Scottsdale, Ariz.) and Bill Sager (Tacoma, Wash.).

In 1992, TAB launched the Star Awards – the only statewide tribute to excellence in the home building industry. The annual competition showcased the outstanding work of builders, remodelers, architects, designers, and sales, marketing, and construction professionals in Texas.
 
This year, the Texas Association of Builders is honored to introduce the Legacy Awards. The Shining Star, Brilliant Star and Spotlight Supporter awards honor TAB members who have continually embraced the Star Awards for the past 25 years. During this time span, eight companies have supported the Star Awards program 10 or more years, while three companies have participated 15 or more years. The Spotlight Supporter Award honors an individual who has committed a great deal of personal time and effort into the production of the program.
