The Scottish Home Awards was founded in 2007 to recognise excellence in the Scottish housebuilding industry. It is an independent awards programme, run for the benefit of the housebuilding community, with the objective of helping house builders and housing associations sell, rent or promote their properties more effectively.
Ross and Liddell are the headline sponsor of the Scottish Home Awards. Ross and Liddell are one of Scotland’s most established property management companies. As well as property management and maintenance, the business provides a comprehensive range of residential and commercial services, including sales, lettings, surveying and insurance.
Employing 95 staff, Ross and Liddell has offices in Edinburgh, Paisley and Dundee as well as an office in Glasgow city centre and a lettings office in the west end of the city.

The most stylish, innovative and affordable homes and developments in the country are vying for recognition in the 9th annual Scottish Home Awards.
Sponsored by Ross + Liddell, event organisers have revealed the list of categories for 2016 in Scotland’s largest independent awards programme for the housing industry, which showcases the best new housing in Scotland and rewards hard working teams.
With the awards presented to private housebuilders and housing associations, there is a list of 18 to choose from. Perhaps one of the most competitive is the Apartment Development of the Year award, sponsored by DAW Signs, which looks at developments as a whole, rather than individual properties. The award is for well created spaces which carefully blend a range of house styles into a new community with its own identity.
Last year’s winner Westpoint Homes were commended for their Edinburgh mill development, West Mill in Colinton and were also presented with the prize for Starter Home of the Year for Abbey Place in Paisley.
Meanwhile, family housing is consistently popular and so the House of the Year category takes into consideration location, value for money as well as quality and design for a detached, semi or terraced house which is part of a new development. This award will be presented to a house marketed at or below £500,000, taking into account the needs of the market while effectively using the surrounding area and amenities.
Furthering the work of sustainable development and with the support of The Scotsman as sponsors, The Sustainable Development of the Year award will be presented to a developer which can show a holistic approach to sustainable building and living.
Reigning champions CALA and S1 Developments took the ultimate prizes and were named the Large and Small Housing Developers of the Year. Both have continued their success throughout last year and organisers are hopeful that new work will be highlighted from both firms as well as from other leading players in the market.
