Chair of the RICS Awards 2019, Scotland judging panel, Colin Smith MRICS, said:
“What is great about the RICS Awards is that they celebrate and recognise the community impact that these shortlisted property projects are having on their local communities, as well as the talent and collaboration of the teams behind them. The judges are always impressed with the calibre of entries we receive, making shortlisting a tough task. This year, our judges shortlisted the renovation of Eden Manor to demonstrate transformation that residential developments can have, and our judges look forward to visiting the project to find out more about the process involved.”
“We are extremely proud to see the impact we have made by restoring Eden Manor, not only for the residents moving in but also their families and the local community surrounding it. From the design stages with John D Crawfords Architects, to construction and handover, there’s been a sense of excitement around the project which has beautifully restored the main features of the abandoned C-listed building into modern homes.
Being shortlisted in the RICS Awards is a real testament of the hard work and effort that the team put into all of our properties. We’re looking forward to celebrating with the other finalists in May”
All Scottish winners go on to compete against other regional winners at the national RICS Awards Grand Final in November 2019, for the chance to be crowned the overall UK winner in their respective category.
