Construction News Image
Homes for Scotland (HFS) has announced the winners of its 2024 awards, recognising the home building sector across Scotland.

Three of Scotland's home builders took headline Home Builder of the Year awards, with winners in six additional categories also announced, including a special recognition for McTaggart Construction's Managing Director Janice Russell for outstanding leadership in home building.

CALA Homes was announced as large Home Builder of the Year for a second year running, with previous winners Whiteburn Projects awarded top SME and Kingdom Housing Association crowned Home Builder of the Year (Affordable Housing Provider).

The headline awards were decided by an independent judging panel following site visits and senior management interviews, with the panel probing on areas such as company ethos and approach, innovation and development, customer satisfaction, health and safety indicators and the way in which the organisation supports the key objective of positioning home building as a force for good.

Chair of the independent judging panel David Knight, former Managing Director at Avant Homes, said: "With this representing my final year in tenure as Chair, I have been honoured to be a part of the judging process for what I believe are the most robust awards in their field, with 2024 representing another high calibre of entrants.

"This year focused on how Homes for Scotland (HFS) members are meeting the housing needs of everyone living (or who wishes to live) in Scotland and the judges kept this at the forefront of their minds throughout a rigorous judging process. We again had the honour of visiting all shortlisted sites and attending interviews with senior management representatives where we witnessed the high standards and passion of those who bring these wide-ranging developments, processes and practices to life.

"On behalf of the 2024 judging panel, I wish to acknowledge the efforts of all those who entered this year's programme and congratulate those shortlisted and taking home awards."
