CHP Named Multifamily Contractor of the Year

Christiansburg, Virginia - For the third time in five years, CHP has been honored with one of EarthCraft Virginia's annual Sustainable Leadership Awards. The Richmond-based green building certification and education program recently named CHP as Multifamily Contractor of the Year for its exceptional commitment to sustainable housing. CHP was also recognized by EarthCraft Virginia in 2010 for Best Architect/Design Firm and in 2009 for Best Multifamily Developer of the Year.

"Our Sustainable Leadership Awards recognize some of the best initiatives in sustainable housing in Virginia over the past year," says EarthCraft Virginia Executive Director K.C. McGurren. "This year's winners have gone above and beyond standard building expectations, consistently striving for higher performing, sustainable homes."

Each year, EarthCraft Virginia presents awards in a variety of categories to regional builders, developers, and other stakeholders who demonstrate superior dedication to the advancement of sustainable housing. Winners are honored in several categories to cover new construction, renovation, single-family homes, multifamily housing and more. 

With over three decades of experience in the preservation and construction of multifamily and single-family affordable housing communities, CHP's long-term commitment is to the environmental, economic, and social sustainability of the communities it serves by employing environmentally-responsible building practices and products in the homes it creates.

"CHP is proud to be recognized by EarthCraft Virginia for its commitment to green housing," said CHP Vice President of Construction Todd Peacock.
