Chair of the RICS Awards judging panel, Colin Smith MRICS, said, “Despite much uncertainty and challenging conditions over the past couple of years, property professionals in Scotland continue to deliver exemplary, and in many cases, world-class built projects that are having a profoundly positive impact on our cities and towns. I wish the teams behind them all the best of luck in gaining recognition for their skills and hard work.”
