Five stars for Dandara at UK Property Awards


Property developer, Dandara, picked up a total of nine prizes at the recent UK round of the International Property Awards.

The firm’s Forbes Place at Stoneywood, which is Aberdeen’s first private rental scheme (PRS) development, was named the best residential high-rise development.

The development also received two 5-Star awards including Best Apartment (North-east Scotland) for its studio property type and Best Development Marketing (Scotland).

Dandara also received a 5-Star award for the three-bedroom Cherry bungalow house style at the Hazelwood development in Aberdeen, which was named Best Residential Property (North-east Scotland). The firm’s Knights Wood development in Kent also received a 5-Star award.

Dandara also received Highly Commended awards for two other Aberdeen communities; the Beech Walk phase of the Hazelwood development was recognised in the Residential Development (North-east Scotland) category while the townhouse at Stoneywood estate was recognised for Architecture Single Residence (North-east Scotland).

Two Highly Commended awards were also given for developments in Kent and Isle of Man.

Dandara will now progess to the “world’s best” round of the awards, to be judged later this year.

Gavin Wyley, managing director of Dandara in Aberdeen, commented, “Our first residents began moving into their new apartments at Forbes Place in Aberdeen just a matter of weeks ago, so to be able to refer to it as an award winning development at this stage is a huge achievement.

“These awards are a fantastic acknowledgement of Dandara’s commitment to providing the highest possible standard of living to all our customers, whether they’re looking for their forever home or flexible, high quality rental accommodation.

“We look forward to representing the UK among the world’s most highly regarded property developers at the final judging stage later this year.”
