We are thrilled to have been named finalists in the 13th annual Scottish Home Awards!
These awards celebrate new build housing in Scotland and this year there was a record high volume of entries from 109 housebuilders, housing associations and support businesses across Scotland.
The awards aim to reward placemaking and the creation of new home communities in Scotland and the finalists were carefully chosen by a judging panel of experts during an all-day session in Edinburgh which took place in February.
Urban Union has been announced as finalists for three of the categories:
- Community Contribution Award – Pennywell Living
- Affordable Housing Development of the Year (private sale) – Laurieston Living
- Housing Regeneration Project of the Year – Laurieston Living
Chair of the judging panel, Dan Macdonald, CEO of Macdonald Estates, commented;
“The Scottish Home Awards celebrates the massive contribution that our residential development industry makes to our national economy, our wealth, our self being and our future generations. The phenomenal growth in entries this year is testament to the health of the sector and the continued impact that it has in placemaking and the creation of new homes across Scotland. I would like to thank the judging panel for their contribution in debating the merits of each and every entry and I congratulate all of the worthy finalists in this year’s competition.”
Andrew Cunningham, Managing Director at Ross & Liddell and a judge on the panel, commented;
“It is encouraging to see the continued growth of the Scottish Home Awards competition. We have welcomed a record number of entries and firms this year which is testament to the credibility of this now well established and highly regarded awards programme. We are proud to continue our support of the programme and extend our congratulations to all the finalists for their achievements.”
