Pruett Builders wins two national awards at national homebuilders convention.

Over the years, Pruett Builders, a nationally recognized design/build firm whose designs have won many awards in competitions across the country, has earned a reputation for building extraordinary homes. President Brian Pruett and his building team go beyond innovative design and quality construction.

Pruett Builders is recognized as the leading expert on "Health House" and energy efficiency. Pruett Builders is sharing its knowledge and research with the National Homebuilders' Association Research Center, the Florida Solar Energy Center, Energy Star, Florida Power & Light's Buildsmart program and the American Lung Association. Pruett Builders was selected by the American Lung Association to build the "1999 Health House of Florida," one of three in the United States.

The super-energy-efficient "Biltmore" model home won the "2000 National Energy Value Housing Gold Medal Award" at the National Homebuilders Convention in Dallas, Texas. It is available for purchase in Hyde Park at University Park Country Club. Pruett Builders will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the "Biltmore" model to the American Lung Association to help educate builders and consumers. Using the latest technology and state-of-the-art building techniques to create a healthier home by controlling the indoor air quality and maximizing the energy efficiency, Pruett Builders has proven that having this type of home is nor only possible but also affordable. The energy savings more than pay for the added costs of construction.

"Having a healthy home is a benefit you don't have to pay for," says Brian Pruett. "We are building homes of the future today." Indoor air pollution has become an increasingly serious health hazard, and the high humidity we experience in Florida can exacerbate the problem. The Health House is designed to substantially reduce indoor pollutants such as mold, mildew, dust mites and other biological and chemical pollutants.

The Biltmore model also won the "Best in American Living Award," which recognizes the best architecturally designed homes in the United States. Florida native Brian Pruett has been blessed with a keen eye for design. "It's a gift from the Lord," he says.

Instrumental to the company's success is the in-house design team that produces award-winning floor plans and exterior designs that are always on the cutting edge. Pruett Builders consistently wins design awards, including seven highly prized Aurora Awards. The Auroras are selected in rigorous competition among builders in 10 Southeastern states.

Visit the company's models and see for yourself why a Pruett home is distinctively different. You'll quickly see why Pruett Builders has earned its reputation for honesty, integrity and reliability.
