Maracay Homes - Villages at Rio Paseo Wins the Technical Plan Review - Responsive Award at the QB Builder Awards for 2017
Fort Lauderdale, FL (Feb. 08, 2018) – Maracay Homes is an Arizona homebuilder established over 25 years ago. They are a member of the TRI Pointe Group® - a family of premium regional homebuilders supported by the significant resources, economies of scale and thought leadership of a national foundation. Maracay takes pride in their work and understands that well thought-out and comprehensive architectural design plans are crucial to the success of a building structure. This is why they partnered with Quality Built (QB), a national third-party QA inspection company, to perform a Technical Plan ReviewTM (TPR) on their Villages at Rio Paseo community. The Villages at Rio Paseo is comprised of 117 energy-efficient condominium homes within walking distance of convenient retail centers, entertainment and highly reputable schools, located in Phoenix, AZ.
On January 9, 2018, it was announced that Maracay’s Villages at Rio Paseo community was the winner of the 2017 QB Technical Plan Review - Responsive Award. While Quality Built’s architects acknowledged that the plans for this project were well done to begin with, Maracay’s team expressed their commitment to quality by working diligently to make the plans even better. In fact, out of all of the suggestions for improvement that QB’s experts proposed, Maracay made a point of implementing 100% of them.
The Value of a Technical Plan Review
Elimination of construction risk can begin with the plans. A TPR of construction documents for recurring “hot spots”, constructability and performance issues can save a builder from a major disaster. In their TPRs, Quality Built provides their clients with a comprehensive analysis of their project documents; looking for errors, completeness of specifications and conflicting and/or missing details. Although architectural firms can be extremely talented and knowledgeable on what they do, there is always room for improvement, and a peer review can help address items that could be improved upon.
