Salt Lake HBA 2022 Builder of the Year

The Builder of the Year honor is only given to builders considered to have provided exemplary leadership in the home-building industry. This award highlights a career noted for first-rate leadership, an extraordinary management ability and unsurpassed leadership within the residential construction industry.


For the third consecutive year, McArthur Homes has been recognized as a Guildmaster by GuildQuality, Inc., the leading firm offering customer satisfaction surveying and measurement to the Utah home building industry. Only 154 home builders, remodelers, developers and contractors throughout North America received this award which recognizes businesses for their exceptional customer satisfaction.

The GuildQuality Guildmaster Awards celebrate service excellence among home builders, remodelers, developers, property managers, home services contractors, and real estate professionals. Once a year, GuildQuality bestows upon a handful of its members an award for exemplary quality and customer service. Award winners differ in their types of work and price ranges, but all have a lengthy track record of exceptional customer feedback. In granting awards, GuildQuality considers two primary metrics for each candidate: the percentage of customers who would recommend and the percentage of customers who responded.

Upon being notified of the award, Dave McArthur remarked, “We would like to thank all of our homeowners for participating in the GuildQuality surveys. We couldn’t have achieved this great recognition without your help. We are so proud to hear our homeowners say time and time again that they would recommend us to their friends and family. We couldn’t ask for a better award or recognition than that!”

McArthur Homes, and many of our contractors and suppliers, helped complete the Habitat for Humanity home this year with the Salt Lake Home Builders Association. Last week, we turned over the new home in Utah to the new owners, the Yussuf Family. The home was approximately 2000 SF, 6 bedrooms, 4 baths, and built entirely with donated materials and labor from HBA member suppliers and contractors. It is amazing that even in these difficult times, commonly called the Great Recession, that so many people and organizations are still willing to donate so much to help others. It really is amazing! Seeing the joy in the faces of the family – especially the kids – made all the effort worth it, many times over.

McArthur Homes earns award for building new homes that protect the environment through energy efficiency

South Jordan, Utah – McArthur Homes is pleased to announce that it has been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with a 2010 ENERGY STAR Leadership in Housing Award. This award recognizes the important contribution McArthur Homes has made to energy-efficient construction and environmental protection by building more than 75 ENERGY STAR qualified homes last year. Collectively, these homes will save our customers approximately $33,078 on utility bills each year.

The environmental benefits of these ENERGY STAR qualified homes are equal to the equivalent of:

  • Eliminating the emissions from 36 vehicles;
  • Saving 219,336 lbs of coal;
  • Planting 60 acres of trees; or
  • Saving the environment 430,162 pounds of CO2 per year.

To earn the ENERGY STAR, a home must meet strict guidelines for energy efficiency set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. These homes are at least 15% more energy efficient than homes built to the 2004 International Residential Code (IRC), and include additional energy-saving features that typically make them 20–30% more efficient than standard homes.

ENERGY STAR qualified homes offer homebuyers all the features they want in a new home, plus energy-saving features like effective insulation systems, high-performance windows, tight construction and ducts, properly-sized and installed efficient heating and cooling equipment, efficient products, and third-party verification of energy performance.

“Most homebuyers focus on what’s outside the walls,” said Sam Rashkin, National Director for EPA’s ENERGY STAR Homes Program, “but they also need to look behind the walls for the energy-efficient features found in ENERGY STAR qualified homes that help ensure comfort, quiet, improved indoor air quality, and low utility bills for years to come.”

More than one million ENERGY STAR homes have been built in the United States since the program first began labeling homes in 1995. Thanks to the dedication of our partners, families living in ENERGY STAR qualified homes will save more than $270 million this year on their utility bills, while avoiding greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from 370,000 vehicles.

About ENERGY STAR ENERGY STAR was introduced by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in 1992 as a voluntary market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through increased energy efficiency. Today, ENERGY STAR offers businesses and consumers energy-efficient solutions to save energy, money and help protect the environment for future generations. More than 17,000 organizations are ENERGY STAR partners committed to improving the energy efficiency of products, homes, buildings and businesses.
