Hall of Fame


The California Homebuilding Foundation is the presenter of California’s top industry award, the homebuilding Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame was created in 1985 by the Foundation to pay tribute to individuals whose professional achievements have enhanced construction and development in California. The homebuilding Hall of Fame, the most distinguished industry recognition in California, is awarded to those who have positively impacted others through their exemplary leadership and philanthropic achievements.


Great leaders inspire us. It is a honor for the California Homebuilding Foundation to bestow this award upon exceptional individuals for their achievements, services, and valuable contributions to homebuilding and construction. The contribution may be in the field of building, architecture, engineering, finance, design, and real estate. More than 230 men and women have been inducted into the homebuilding Hall of Fame, esteemed individuals whose enrichment of the homebuilding industry has touched upon thousands of lives throughout California, the U.S. and abroad.

We're proud to celebrate people who share our passion and commitment to positively impacting the homebuilding industry. The Foundation welcomes you to enjoy an incredible celebration of our industry joining trade leaders for an enchanting dinner and awards program. Honorees take center-stage and share family, friend and career experiences in a heartfelt and emotional address. The Hall of Fame gala is not only a moving and inspirational salute to homebuilding, it is one of the most spectacular events of the year. Celebrate the Hall of Fame class of 2019.
