2016 Jerry Rouleau Awards

Simplex Honored by National Awards Program

[Scranton, PA 11/03/15 ] - Scranton based high-end modular manufacturer, Simplex Industries, received a national home building accolade as part of the 2016 Jerry Rouleau Awards for Excellence in Marketing and Home Design. The award was presented by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Building Systems Councils (BSC) and the Log and Timber Homes Council. Simplex was honored on Nov. 6, 2015, during the BSC’s Building Systems Showcase, the only national conference and educational event focused exclusively on the systems-built industry.

For more than a decade, the BSC’s awards program has promoted excellence in systems-built housing. Front runners in the industry are honored at the annual awards presentation for their innovative marketing strategies and unique systems-built housing designs.

"Winners of this year’s awards did a phenomenal job of showcasing the best marketing and home designs in the building systems industry,” said 2015 BSC chairman, Dan Mitchell owner of Eagle CDI in Seymour, Tenn. “Systems-built technology is the building of the future, and these awards represent what is possible for potential systems-built home owners."

The annual Jerry Rouleau Awards for Excellence are judged by an independent panel of industry experts, and companies like Simplex were praised for the quality of their submittals. Recipients were recognized for excellence in achievement in a range of categories such as informative and aesthetically-pleasing websites, along with floor plan designs categorized by systems-built type and square footage.

“We’re proud to win the 2016 Jerry Rouleau Award for Excellence in Home Design for the Union Hill Townhome project,” said Patrick Fricchione, President of Simplex Industries. “We have won multiple Jerry Rouleau Awards over the years and each is very special because of the recognition from our peers, as well as the fact the awards honor a great man, Jerry Rouleau. Jerry was instrumental in promoting the high quality modular construction industry.” Patrick Fricchione went on to explain the Union Hill Townhomes are a luxury, townhome development located in Union City, New Jersey. The project is currently under review for LEED Platinum Certification from the US Green Building Council.

Select projects will be displayed on the BSC Awards Wall during the 2016 NAHB International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, Jan. 19 – 21, 2016.
