Gateway Senior Living Among 2023 HBAV Housing Excellence Awards Winners

HBAV Housing Excellence Award Winner

Charlottesville, VA – Each year the Housing Builders Association of Virginia honors association members who embody the mission of the HBAV, to protect and enhance the housing climate, and to ensure the vitality of the building industry so as to benefit its members and the citizens of the Commonwealth of Virginia. On June 3, 2023, the HBAV announced 20 Housing Excellence Awards during the 2023 Annual Conference held at The Greenbrier Resort. These awards recognize HBAV members for their dedication, leadership, and engagement in the community and Virginia building industry.

Pinnacle Construction and Development Corporation and its project Gateway Senior Living received the Innovation Project of the Year Award for their forward thinking in homebuilding through production techniques, energy efficiency, air quality, durability, sustainability, and resiliency. Pinnacle Construction and Development Corporation developed Gateway Senior Living, an 80-unit, green certified, apartment community for low-income seniors at or below 60% of the area median income located in Augusta County, utilizing modular construction to optimize construction efficiency, cost, and quality.

Gateway offers living spaces designed with the idea that senior housing should provide an optimal living experience, surpassing former precedents in intention and purpose alike. Using the modular construction method – a method in which the building is constructed offsite and then delivered to the job site where the prefabricated pieces are assembled – the goal for Pinnacle Construction and Gateway Senior Living since inception, has been to support affordable housing and spur innovative and creative opportunities within the housing industry as a whole.

This year’s HBAV awards were judged by a diverse group of members from across Virginia including remodelers, land developers, multifamily builders and suppliers, trade partners, custom and volume single family builders. Individual achievements were judged on performance between January 1, 2022 and December 31, 2022, and all projects were completed between January 1, 2022 and March 31, 2023. The HBAV is a 2,700 member professional trade association dedicated to enhancing and protecting housing in Virginia, while advancing the home building industry within the Commonwealth.
