Welcome to the Scottish Home Awards

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.

Scotland’s largest independent awards initiative for the housing industry gets underway today with the launch of the 2016 Scottish Home Awards programme, sponsored by Ross + Liddell.

The 9th annual awards will highlight excellence in new home creation with the return of a range of popular categories which covers the breadth of the house building industry.

Awards will be presented for affordable flats, chic city apartments and luxury family homes.  Business awards will also be presented to the best performing companies in the industry with the ultimate award, Housebuilder of the Year being presented to two businesses both large and small.

Reigning champions of the top award, CALA and S1 Developments have both continued their success through last year and organisers are hopeful that new work will be highlighted from both firms and others in the market.

The awards which typically attract entries from over 60 different housebuilders across Scotland are staged for the second time with the support of one of Scotland’s largest property management firms, Ross and Liddell.

Andrew Cunningham, Director, Ross and Liddell, commented:

“I am delighted to be given the opportunity to play an active role in the Scottish Home Awards. Following the record number, and exceptional quality, of entries last year we look forward to seeing the ever improving standards within the industry reflected in the developments put forward for consideration in the 2016 Awards. I personally look forward to the detailed judging process and to the chance to review, and consider, the merits of the various development types, meeting differing needs, in locations throughout the country.”
