Evaluated alongside the nation’s biggest and best homebuilders, Charter’s team was recognized for excellence across every aspect of its business.

About The Award
Winning the NHQ Award requires more than just operating a great home building company; it requires genuine effort. Not only do candidates have to implement sophisticated operating processes that improve performance, those processes must also be documented in an extensive application and verified through a site visit by National Housing Quality Award judges. Program participants benefit from the introspective process of preparing an application, as well as the insightful feedback received from the expert judging panel, many of whom are past National Housing Quality Award winners. Winners of the National Housing Quality Award are featured in a Professional Builder magazine article that highlights their quality management practices for the benefit of the housing industry.
