Morristown, NJ —  The Metropolitan Builders & Contractors Association of New Jersey (MetroBCA) presented its Awards of Excellence at their annual spring gala dinner which took place at the Dolce Hotel, Basking Ridge. Spectrum Construction & Development Co., Inc. (Spectrum Construction), based out of Roxbury Township, was honored in front of hundreds of industry leaders for their construction of a Custom Single-Family Home in the $1,000,000 - $2,000,000 Category.

According to the MetroBCA, “The Awards of Excellence Program has been designed so that the Metropolitan Builders & Contractors Association of NJ may recognize and promote members of the New Jersey Builders Association who attain high levels of achievement in the fields of new home construction, remodeling, commercial building, and sales and marketing. Winners were chosen by a panel of independent judges who came from outside MetroBCA’s six-county area.”

“We work very closely with our customers from the design phase through construction,” said Don Dyrness, President of Spectrum Construction & Development, who accepted the award. “It’s a team approach, which also includes our trade contractors, vendors and suppliers. Everyone involved deserves some credit and we are grateful for their contributions.”

From Demolition to Divine - Best Custom Single-Family Home (Category: $1,000,000 - $2,000,000)

The homeowners moved to Morristown, New Jersey to be closer to their grown children and their families. They found a mid-century style home on a beautiful tree-lined street less than a mile away from their children's homes. Although the location was ideal and the corner lot perfectly situated for the homeowners, it was in disrepair and did not offer them the space, design features and finishes they wanted. Spectrum Construction arranged for the original home to be deconstructed by Second Chance, Inc., a non-profit organization, which reclaimed any salvageable material and then sold it to the public for reuse or re-purposing.

The custom 4-bedroom, 4.5-bath home that Spectrum Construction designed and built in its place combines country charm with modern elegance. This new home incorporates many unique features including the “drive through” two-car garage that allows the homeowners access to the converging streets. The massive first-floor master bedroom suite consists of a marble surround fireplace, 2 sizeable walk-in-closets as well as his and her luxurious master bathrooms. Two home offices provide the homeowners with ample room to take care of business. An elevator was installed to enable the homeowners and aging guests to easily and safely access the second floor. Abundant storage areas throughout the home, including the cavernous full basement, offer plenty of space to stow extra belongings.

The second story was designed with the homeowners’ grandchildren in mind. The additional bedrooms, playroom and upstairs den make room for both daytime visits and overnight stays. Space for entertaining adult guests was also considered. The first floor includes a spacious great room with floor to ceiling stone fireplace which opens to a covered, screened-in back porch with a second stone fireplace. The stylish kitchen, containing two counter seating areas and an eat-in nook, along with the formal dining room give the homeowners plenty of room to accommodate large gatherings.

Additionally, Spectrum Construction renovated and constructed an addition for each of the homeowners' children whose homes are situated less than a mile apart from one another.

Spectrum Construction is a member of MetroBCA, New Jersey Builders Association (NJBA) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).
