Sacramento, CA (April 15, 2019) -- Over 185 international builders, product manufactures, and insurance companies gathered at the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower in Las Vegas, NV for the unveiling of the 2019 Quality Built (QB) Builder Awards. Beazer Homes Sacramento was awarded first place for the Quality of Construction Award for Full-Scope QA Inspections.
The annual QB Builder Awards is hosted by Quality Built, LLC, the nation’s leader in third party QA inspections and risk management solutions for new building construction, to recognize builders in their program who consistently build to a high level of quality. These builders consciously strive to raise the bar by utilizing QB’s proven system to measure their performance and pursue continuous process improvement.
To qualify for the first place award, builders had to build at least 50 units annually, enrolled in the QB program for three years, and maintain consistent quality of construction spanning across all projects within their division. The Full-Scope QA Inspections is among QB’s most comprehensive services and addresses the foundation (pre-pour), windows pre-wrap and post-wrap, exterior frame, balcony waterproofing, weather resistive barrier (WRB), lath, siding, flashings, mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP)/rough trades - interior frame, roof dry-in and roof final.
“Throughout 2018, Quality Built inspected 100,422 homes within 2,784 communities across the United States.” said Beth Michaelis, President and Co-Founder, Quality Built. “Winning this award is certainly something Beazer NorCal should be proud of. This division is dedicated to building a quality home; which has been evidenced through the hundreds of inspections conducted by our Field Consultants on their projects. They have every home inspected at multiple stages of construction and immediately act to correct any issues found. More importantly, they utilize the data to improve processes to minimize reoccurrences.”
Ray Ferrarini, Vice President of Operations from Beazer’s Sacramento division, accepted the #1 award alongside QB’s executive team and their strategic partner, professional contractor and TV host, Mike Holmes. “Our goal is to build a high-performing, quality home that delivers long-term durability and comfort to our valued customers” Ray explained. “We are very proud of both our internal team, trade partners, vendors and consultants. This was truly a team effort that resulted in Beazer earning this prestigious award for our quality of construction.”
