Writing New Rules

The game remains the same: armed with great ideas and an educated work force, build memorable places that people are happy to call home.

The game remains the same: armed with great ideas and an educated work force, build memorable places that people are happy to call home. But know that you won't take home the prize if you're still playing by an old set of rules. Impatient with the old way, leaders such as home builder David Weekley and urban planner Peter Calthorpe simply write their own rules. For their innovation in work-force devel-opment and regional land planning, Professional Builder recognizes their service to the home building industry with the 2003 Achievement Awards.

 

Land Planning
Forget about the archaic distinctions between city and suburbs. The distance between the realms of residential and commercial development is growing more obsolete.
Work-Force Development
Constructivism means giving employees the resources and opportunity to learn on their own, at their pace, when they need it. At Houston-based David Weekley Homes, constructivism is achieved by using e-learning to separate the "need to know" from the "nice to know."
