ATLANTA – The Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association presented two OBIE awards to Chappell Construction Group during a ceremony at the Cobb Galleria held Saturday, November 3, 2012. The OBIE, named after the obelisk shape of the actual award, is the highest honor given in Atlanta real estate. The award recognizes outstanding accomplishments in new home building, marketing, remodeling and personal achievement.

Owner/CEO Wade Alexander Chappell and Superintendent/Project Manager Brad King were honored with the Silver OBIE award in the “Residential Remodeling” category for a whole-house renovation between $250,000-$500,000. The project was located on Verdun Drive in Atlanta. The two were also presented a Gold OBIE award in the “Residential Remodeling” category for a whole-house renovation over $500,000 for a project located on River Trace in Roswell.

Chappell Construction was originally founded by Wade “Alex” Chappell’s father, William Chappell Jr. in 1976. The company has the stated goal of focusing on “establishing long term relationships with clients in the high-end construction market through its work ethic and professionalism in the custom construction market”.

“In my experience, business leads come from many directions, but none are more important and more fruitful than the personal references of past clients,” Chappell said, “which is why the goal of Chappell Construction is to accomplish 100% satisfaction of its clients.”

Chappell Construction Group offers “exceptional performance in all aspects of the construction industry, outstanding customer service, and unparalleled value.” The company specializes in renovations, interiors, and expansions; commercial construction – restaurant and offices; residential construction – client centered custom homes; and residential homes for sale.

Chappell, from Carroll County, Georgia and a Carrollton High graduate, is a Georgia Tech graduate with a degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering and a Certificate in Building Construction. His experience in commercial construction dates back to his time at Brasfield & Gorrie, a company he worked for while attending college, and his early years were spent working for his father in residential construction.

This year marked the 32nd anniversary of the annual OBIE awards. The awards feature “100 building, remodeling, marketing and personal achievement categories.” The Sales and Marketing Council of the HBA (Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association) presents the awards every November.
