29 overall excellence in construction design and merit awards were presented at the Collier Building Industry Association’s (CBIA) 2018 Multi-Site Parade of Homes (POH) awards breakfast held Thursday, March 8, 2018 at the Hilton Naples.

According to 2018 CBIA Parade committee chairperson Jackie Nelson of Clive Daniel Home, 120 homebuilders, architects and interior designers attended the annual event to recognize outstanding building construction and design excellence peer-judged by a panel of industry experts from across the state of Florida.

The six-day event, spanning Friday through Sunday, March 9-11 and March 16-18 from 10 am until 5 pm, features 83 fully decorated model homes constructed by 17 of Southwest Florida’s premier homebuilders located throughout 31 different neighborhoods. “Each model home entry was considered based upon the price of the model, lot and construction upgrades, but did not include interior design and furnishings when evaluating the home,” says CBIA Executive Vice President Kathy Curatolo.  Individual judging sheets sanctioned five sections (exterior, interior, livability/workmanship, floor plan and outstanding feature) with suggested scoring for each section on a scale of (1) Poor to (5) Excellent. Each section included key features to consider such as overall architectural design, outdoor planning (landscaping, decks, pool, lighting), and notable special design features.
