SPRINGFIELD PROPERTIES has picked up the top Homes for Scotland Home Builder of the Year award.
Focused on the theme of “Foundations for the Future”, the 2015 Awards showcased a commitment to raise standards across the industry and overcome the barriers to building much needed homes across all tenures.
The awards were presented in front of a record 900 senior industry representatives and their guests at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre last Friday 15 May.
Springfield secured the award for its use of bold and innovative approaches to housing delivery, customer care and employee engagement, whilst BILL ROBERTSON of Robertson Homes was presented with a Lifetime Achievement award for his contribution to home building across 50 years.
A special award was also granted to former Homes for Scotland Director of Planning ALLAN LUNDMARK in recognition of the valued role he has played not only as a leading figure within the trade body’s senior management team, but also as a trusted industry advisor.
MIKE GALLOWAY, Director of City Development, Dundee City Council and chair of the independent judging panel, said: “This year’s judging panel was looking for demonstrations of excellence across a whole range of areas which are key to the future success of not only the home building sector itself but also the local communities they serve.”
