              Chair of the independent judging panel Kareen Davidson, former sales & marketing director at Bett Homes said: “2016 saw the most rigorous judging process for the Homes for Scotland Awards so far and my fellow judges and I are determined to use this platform to ensure this year’s awards continue to be the most robust and credible in our industry and thus very much worth winning.

              “We have seen the quality of entries increase year-on-year and the shortlisted companies clearly demonstrate the high standard the industry is achieving in terms of its approach to the varying needs of customers, design and the placemaking and sustainability agendas. The judging panel is very much looking forward to viewing the different developments and finding out more about the vital role played by the shortlisted supporting organisations during the interview process.”
