Builder of the Year Award, 2008
Each year, the Northern Wasatch Home Builder's Association presents one builder
with the Builder of the Year award. This award goes to a builder that exemplifies generosity,
caring, and giving of themselves to our community. This year, this highly esteemed honor was
given to Bruce Nilson, owner and president of Nilson Homes.
Many volunteer and charitable projects were noted during the presentation of the award. Such
projects include the Have a Heart Home, a charitable home built for a special needs family.
In 2007, Nilson Homes finished a Have a Heart home and had the pleasure of presenting the
keys to the new home owner. Bruce Nilson was so moved by the experience that he immediately
volunteered to build the next Have a Heart home, which is now in final stages of construction
and expected to be completed in December of 2008. Also mentioned was the countless hours and
efforts spent by Bruce Nilson on behalf of Nilson Homes to unite the Home Builder's Association
members, and Bruce's passionate belief that in the current economic climate, leadership and teamwork
is key to success.
Bruce Nilson is an example of positive leadership. His dedication to his work and commitment to
provide the best quality homes possible set him apart from other builders. These qualities and
his concern for others make Bruce Nilson a most deserving recipient of this award. Everyone at
Nilson Homes congratulates Bruce on this great honor and accomplishment!
