With equal importance placed on the creation of new high-quality places to live and the social, environmental and economic impacts on customers and communities, the judges wish to recognise those demonstrating truly innovative and impactful projects and practices.

In keeping with the programme’s robust and rigorous nature, the independent panel will be undertaking site visits to all those shortlisted in the Development of the Year categories alongside corresponding senior management interviews to determine who will take one of three headline Home Builder of the Year awards.  Those shortlisted under the People | Place | Planet category will be interviewed online, with a sub-group of the HFS Board deciding upon the winner of Supporting Organisation of the Year.

Winners will be revealed at the Homes for Scotland Annual Lunch (sponsored by Burness Paull) at the EICC on Friday 17 May at which over 800 senior industry representatives and guests are already confirmed to attend what remains the date in the Scottish home building industry calendar.

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 these quality awards, with 2024 representing another high calibre of entrants.

“Having now also completed the site visit and interview process, my fellow judges and I now face the difficult task of determining the winners. Given the high standards and passion of those  who bring these wide-ranging developments, processes and practices to life, this is going to be an extremely tough job.”
