Congratulations Gold Nugget Award Winners!
Withee Malcolm has long been a big supporter and frequent winner of the Gold Nugget Awards. This year, Partner Dan Withee joined the awards jury with a distinguished team of designers, planners, and builders: Helen Foster, principal at New Orleans-based Foster Strategy; Valerio Muraro, director of design at Alpharetta, GA-based Ashton Woods; Teri Slavik-Tsuyuki, principal at Encinitas, CA-based Tst Ink;; Bob White, founder of Laguna Beach, CA-based ForestStudio; and BUILDER’s John McManus, vice president and editorial director at Washington, D.C.-based Hanley Wood. While Dan’s role as a juror precluded WMA from entering this year, it was a great opportunity to contribute to the program and to see just how winners do it.
From a pool of roughly 600 U.S. and international entries, judges selected merit winners and one grand winner in over 50 categories, including single-family production, custom homes, commercial, office, renovations, mixed-use, affordable, multifamily, and site planning.
“It was a highly informative experience reviewing the best work of some the top designers and builders in the country,” said Withee. “The jurors work diligently for several days to review the entries critical and fairly—the quality of the submittals is remarkable. The lessons learned from the effort will help shape Withee Malcolm’s entries in years to come. We appreciate what an honor it has been to win our Gold Nugget Awards and look forward to next year’s competition.”
