AN Edinburgh-based site manager has been shortlisted for one of the UK housebuilding industry’s top awards.
Neal Toland, former site manager at CALA’s Ten Brunswick Road development in Edinburgh, is in contention for the Best Multi-Story Development category at the NHBC Supreme Awards.
The London ceremony, being held on January 26, comprises winners from different regional awards across the UK. Neal will represent the sector in Scotland, having won the category at the NHBC Regional awards.
Neal, who now works as a contracts manager with CALA Homes (East) said, “I am over the moon to be in the running for such a prestigious award and for Ten Brunswick Road to be highlight as an exceptional development. Ten Brunswick Road is the epitome of CALA in terms of quality and style. It is fantastic that this – and the work of all involved – has been recognised at such a high level.
“The development has been such a challenge but also a delight to work on with a team that deserves the credit. It has been really rewarding, and the fact that it sold out ahead of schedule just brings home how popular it has been. We’re up against some big players in the UK housebuilding industry at the London ceremony so it is really exciting. Fingers crossed we can bring home the prize, but this is more about celebrating reaching this level already.”
Brian Johnson, construction director with CALA Homes added, “Having already won the top prize for Scotland, we wish Neal all the very best. Here at CALA we are extremely proud of his achievements, as well as the support that the wider team at Ten Brunswick Road provided.
“The work put in to make the development a success has been incredible – and he thoroughly deserves the recognition.”
