Installation & Awards

Each year, we recognize the individuals and companies that make the Athens Area HBA what it is today. 

The Dan Saye Builder of the Year

The Dan Saye Builder of the Year award is named after one of Athens’s largest builders- the builder who designed and built Beechwood. Mr. Saye was a longtime supporter of the Athens Area HBA. A past president of the Athens Area HBA and also the Home Builders Association of Georgia, it is an honor that we are able to recognize builders who have followed in Mr. Saye’s footsteps making the Athens Area HBA and our community what it is today.
