Reflecting the robust nature of the awards programme, this year’s independent judging panel will again be undertaking site visits to all the shortlisted entries in the Private and Affordable Housing Development categories. In addition, those companies shortlisted for Private Development of the Year will also be considered for the prestigious Homes for Scotland Home Builder of the Year award through a rigorous interview process. For the first time in the history of the awards, those shortlisted for Supporting Organisation of the Year will also be interviewed by the judges.

Winners will be announced at the Homes for Scotland Annual Lunch (sponsored by Burness Paull) at the EICC on Friday 12 May, which will be hosted by comedian and actor Tim Vine. 

Chair of the independent judging panel Kareen Davidson, former Sales and Marketing Director at Bett Homes said:

“2016 saw the most rigorous judging process for the Homes for Scotland Awards so far, and my fellow judges and I are determined to use this platform to ensure this year’s awards continue to be the most robust and credible in our industry and thus very much worth winning.

“We have seen the quality of entries increase year-on-year, and the shortlisted companies clearly demonstrate the high standard the industry is achieving in terms of its approach to the varying needs of customers, design and the placemaking and sustainability agendas.

“The judging panel is very much looking forward to viewing the different developments and finding out more about the vital role played by the shortlisted supporting organisations during the interview process.”
