"Through our participation in the Global Innovation Award, NAHB Building Systems Councils and IBS 2019 and 2020, we have been globally "discovered." These are exhausting shows, but it is very exciting for our team of nationwide builders to see the 'Aha!' moment when another builder sees the future."

Ken Calligar, CEO, RSG 3-D, 2019, Global Innovation Award Winner

"Introducing new technology to the home building industry has always been a challenge. Our NAHB membership and the Global Innovation Award (GIA) Program have been invaluable to helping us reach U.S. members. NAHB programs like these are a huge benefit to us."

Alex Levy, Hillside Software, 2019 Global Innovation Award Winner

“Since winning the NAHB Global Innovation Award, we’ve had an influx of new builders and designers inquiring about the SLZ-KF product. This award has significantly elevated our visibility and brand awareness in the HVAC marketplace.”
