The Scottish Property Awards, the independent programme which celebrates Scottish commercial and public property, has launched its 8th annual programme with a promise to promote the achievements of the sector, despite the challenges of 2020.

The annual awards event is the largest in the Scottish property calendar, bringing together the breadth of the industry including developers, funders, agents, architects, councils, agents, professional advisers, and contractors. 

Entries are now being invited in advance of the judging day in February, which will be chaired for first time by Alan Robertson, the former MD of JLL in Scotland and former CEO of JLL in the Middle East & North Africa. He commented.

“Despite the challenges of this torrid year, the real estate sector has continued to move forward and has had to evolve to rapidly changing market conditions.  The Scottish Property Awards plays an important role in recognising people and teams at the heart of our property industry and I think that these awards will give everyone a boost when we need it most.

“It is a privilege to be part of the very thorough decision-making process involved and I look forward to debating the achievements of a wide range of projects and teams with my colleagues on the judging panel.”

Following a sell-out success at the EICC earlier this year, the 2021 awards event will be delivered as a live digital broadcast, hosted from the Glasgow Doubletree by Hilton on Thursday 25 March 2021 which guests can watch from the office or home.

The awards are sponsored again by Peace Recruitment and PMP. 

Chris Peace, Director of Peace Recruitment commented.

““We are delighted to renew our sponsorship of the Scottish Property Awards with a two year investment illustrating our commitment to this competition and the opportunities it brings for business development.   The Scottish Property Awards has managed to secure the attention of the entire property industry and is an occasion not to be missed.  Despite its limitations this year, our team at Peace Recruitment look forward to continuing our work to support the competition and will make every effort to celebrate in whatever way we can, come the digital event in March.  We look forward to 2022 when we can be together as an industry, in person, again.”.”

Joseph Madden, Director of PMP, commented.

“The Scottish Property Awards is a highly regarded and independent assessment of all the achievements in Scottish real estate.  The decisions made are truly respected, thanks to the high calibre of expertise on the judging panel and the rigour of the competition.  The team at PMP are looking forward to being part of what is undoubtedly the highlight of the Scottish property calendar as we look forward to planning our celebrations as part of the new digital event.”
