McCaffrey Homes won a Grand Award, the top honor for architectural excellence, for its Tribeca Plan 4 at The Heights at Loma Vista during this year's Gold Nugget awards competition. The Grand Awards were presented at the Gold Nugget Awards ceremony on Wednesday, June 5, in San Diego. Counting the Grand Award from this year's competition, the local homebuilder has now earned 11 Gold Nugget awards since 2007.
Hundreds of entries from across the United States and internationally were submitted for this year's awards competition. Prior to the Gold Nugget ceremony where the Grand Awards were announced, McCaffrey Homes was named a winner of four Merit Awards. The Grand Awards are selected each year from the pool of Merit Award honors.
Lauren McCaffrey Knowlton, vice president of marketing for McCaffrey Homes, said, "Winning a Grand Award at the Gold Nuggets is extremely gratifying. In addition to our own staff here at McCaffrey, we'd like to thank the extended members of our team, including Danielian & Associates for their architecture and design, Broussard Associates Landscape Architects and CDC Designs for their interior design."
In addition to the Grand Award for its Tribeca Plan, McCaffrey Homes received Merit Awards for its Chelsea Plan 1 and Greenwich Plan 2 homes at The Heights at Loma Vista, as well as a Merit Award for The Gallery Carnelian Plan 2. Both The Heights and The Gallery are located in the master planned urban village of Loma Vista in Clovis, California.
McCaffrey Homes' Tribeca Plan 4 was recognized for its high energy ratings, use of side and rear yard spaces, and its street appeal. The judges noted that, "The home is rich in finish materials and feels substantially larger than it is. Inside the home has great character, and lives-large with an open floor plan, multiple indoor/outdoor relationships and an upper floor with generous-sized bedrooms."
The Gold Nugget Awards competition celebrated its 50th anniversary this year and is the oldest design awards program in the nation. The competition is open to builders, developers, architects and land planners with projects in the United States and around the world.
