Homes for Scotland Awards finalists revealed

The Red Lion site in Newton Mearns

THE finalists have been announced for the Homes for Scotland Awards.

Judges will again undertake site visits to shortlisted entries in the Private and Affordable Housing Development categories ahead of the ceremony in Edinburgh in May. The companies shortlisted for Private Development of the Year will also be considered for the Homes for Scotland Home Builder of the Year Award through an interview process.

Andy Mitchell, chair of the independent judging panel and 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.”

Mactaggart & Mickel Homes has been shortlisted for two categories: Private Development of the Year (large) for their Castle Grove development and Private Development of the Year (small) for their Red Lion site. Both developments are in Newton Mearns. Director Joanne Casey said, “We’re proud to be shortlisted for not one, but two, categories at this year’s Homes for Scotland Awards. Thank you to our talented and dedicated design, site, and corporate teams who’ve all ensured our developments are worthy of being shortlisted. We look forward to hearing the results in May.”
