Shea Homes® has been honored by the Greater Houston Builders Association with two 2015 Houston’s Best PRISM awards. For nearly 40 years the Houston’s Best PRISM Awards have recognized the industry’s best in the categories of People, Product and Promotion. The PRISM (Professional Results in Sales & Marketing) distinction has long been synonymous with the industry’s highest caliber of excellence.

Shea Homes won “Best Kitchen for a Volume Builder” for the company’s plan 5050 model in Sienna Plantation. The kitchen design features a unique double island that opens to the living and dining areas making it ideal for entertaining.  Plan 5050 is also available for sale in Shea Homes’ Canopy Green neighborhood in the Creekside Village section of The Woodlands.

Shea Homes also won “Best Model Home Park” for their model home village in The Woodlands. The park features two furnished model homes, a sales office with an interactive kiosk, a history exhibit room illustrating Shea Homes long, rich history, and three outdoor living areas.

“We are honored that our peers have judged us to be among the best in Houston home building,” said Houston Division President Keith Luechtefeld. “We love this market, and we work very hard to design plans that we believe bring a fresh, new perspective to Houston home design.”

The design team responsible for creation of these Shea Homes’ product designs included Michael Woodley and Howard Englander, who were both 2015 California Homebuilding Foundation Hall of Fame inductees. Woodley’s company Woodley Architectural Group, Inc., designed the plans and Englander oversees all architectural development for Shea Homes.

The PRISM awards were presented “Academy-style” at a black-tie gala on Saturday, October 3, 2015, at the Hilton Americas Hotel.

Entries for the GHBA Houston’s Best PRISM awards are judged by an independent panel of industry experts from across the nation. There are categories for every GHBA member—Associates, Custom Builders, Volume Builders, Remodelers and Developers.
