Collier Construction announced that Ethan Collier was awarded 2015 Developer of the Year by the Home Builders Association of Greater Chattanooga (HBAGC).
“Ethan and Collier Construction have worked extremely hard to create and develop sustainable neighborhoods in and around Chattanooga,” said Terry Greene, executive officer of HBAGC. “The commitment to excellence and dedication to the revitalization of Chattanooga has earned Collier Construction a well-deserved reputation of quality and genuine consumer and community service.”
The award reflects Collier Construction’s shift into community development and planning. The company has multiple communities currently under development including a seven-acre, mixed-use development at 100 South Broad, a 93-home subdivision in East Brainerd and several homes at the Royal Commons community. They recently completed the development of six new homes on Poplar Street with another 13 homes planned for 2016 on Chattanooga’s North Shore.
“Our work on Madison Street and Hamilton Avenue really led the way from single home development to planning smart communities,” said Mr. Collier, owner of the company. “We’ve always built energy efficient, sustainable homes, but we wanted entire communities that worked together. We build the kinds of neighborhoods we want to live in – with sidewalks and front porches where people can get to know their neighbors. We’re proud that Collier received this designation highlighting our development work.”
