2013 NHQ Gold Award Winner: Charter Homes & Neighborhoods

The 2013 National Housing Quality Awards have been announced, and we are proud to report that two of our customers, DSLD Homes and Charter Homes & Neighborhoods, have taken the Silver and Gold awards, respectively. Congratulations to you both! At Constellation, we strive to aid our clients any way we can in their efforts to streamline building processes, and we are thrilled to play a small role in the success of these two remarkable builders.

DSLD Homes

In 2008, we implemented a Constellation solution for DSLD Homes, a brand-new homebuilder in Louisiana. Today, DSLD builds 687 homes annually, and we like to think that we played a small part. DSLD uses Constellation to help them collaborate, control costs, and eliminate mistakes.

DSLD boasts a 46-day cycle time, which is made possible in part by NEWSTAR Scheduling. Further, the article notes that the builder’s “trades are paid within two days of completing the work, even without submitting an invoice.” Again, NEWSTAR Scheduling with AutoPay and NEWSTAR Workflow Services allow the system to automatically transfer funds to the trades, as contracted, as soon as the work has been checked to the builder’s satisfaction.

Charter Homes & Neighborhoods

Charter Homes has achieved the prestigious status of NHQ Gold, having progressed from Bronze to Silver in the previous two years. This is an enviable feat, as there have only been seven homebuilders to receive the honor since the award’s inception in 1993. Charter Homes uses Constellation software to manage their operations, with Sales1440 utilized for sales, marketing, planning, and tracking.

Once again, congratulations to DSLD and Charter: two progressive homebuilders who push the envelope of efficiency and maximize margins without satisfying quality or customer satisfaction.

Markham, ON – Constellation HomeBuilder Systems has again been recognized as an industry innovator and leader as part of the Constructech 50. Constructech consistently recognizes Constellation’s contribution to and leadership position in a fluctuating market.

Published in the July/August issue of the magazine, the Constructech 50 highlights the most influential construction-technology providers with a strong and ongoing market presence. Constructech editors consider various criteria to determine the winners, including a strong product aimed at the residential construction industry, ongoing customer satisfaction and growth, as well as outreach and educational efforts within the industry.

“The evolution of technology solutions can shake up the marketplace. It may give newer companies a chance to establish themselves in the arena, and it can also let longtime players prove they are committed to the industry,” says Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Constructech. “This year’s winning companies are giving builders and contractors solid solutions on which to build, and continue to transform.”

“Constellation is committed to developing and enhancing our product solutions, while supporting our customers and the industry in parallel.
