Reflecting the robust nature of the award programme, and the stringent judging criteria honed over the last two years, this year’s independent judging panel will again be undertaking site visits to all of the shortlisted entries in the Private and Affordable Housing Development categories. In addition, the 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.

Winners will be revealed at the Homes for Scotland Annual Lunch (sponsored by Burness Paull) at the EICC on Friday 25 May, which will be hosted by comedian Jo Caulfield. 

Chair of the independent judging panel Andy Mitchell, former Land Director at CALA Homes, said:

“I am delighted to be involved in judging Homes for Scotland’s awards, which have a reputation of being the most credible in our industry.

“The whole judging panel is determined to build upon this with a strong shortlist demonstrating the pride, passion and professionalism of those involved in delivering the majority of much needed new homes across the country.”
