Drum Property Group won Property Company of the Year 2016 at the Scottish Property Awards held in Glasgow last night (3rd March 2016).

The best buildings, businesses and teams in Scotland’s commercial property sector were crowned at the property industry’s largest celebration.

The 3rd annual Scottish Property Awards, the independent programme which celebrates excellence in commercial property, revealed 18 winners across 16 categories with winners spanning the country.

The ultimate award of the night was presented to Drum Property Group for the second year in a row. The Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow-based developer was praised for its continued success at Prime Four and the construction and sale of Annan House in Aberdeen, a development also shortlisted in Deal of the Year.

Fiona Morton, Chair of the Scottish Property Awards judging panel, commented;

“Congratulations to all our finalists and winners announced in the 3rd Scottish Property Awards. I know how tough the competition is and how important it is to win. Judging was a terrific opportunity to assess the many great developments going on in our sector across the country and encouraging seeing some really good examples of regeneration, innovative design and excellent sales and marketing.

“The aim of the Scottish Property Awards is to stage a credible and independent competition which promotes the best in commercial property. It is hard work but also immensely rewarding for everyone involved. I hope all the winners make the most of their win and shout it from the roof tops!”

Chris Stewart, Chair of the Scottish Property Federation, commented:

“It’s important to take time out to review the year’s activities and reflect on the positive contribution made by the commercial property industry to Scottish life. Celebrating talent in design, development and management of commercial property is a vital part of how we project ourselves as a nation to the rest of the UK and beyond. I hope that the winners tonight have been given a new incentive to continue their hard work developing property investment in Scotland and that we continue to raise the standard as an industry each year.”

The Scottish Property Awards was founded in 2012 to run a credible and independent competition which celebrates commercial and public property. Each year an industry judging panel is appointed, which this year reviewed 40 new developments in Scotland currently undergoing construction as part of a national competition.

The Scottish Property Awards raise funds for the charity ‘It’s Good 2 Give’ currently building The Ripple Retreat - a luxury residential retreat which will be gifted to families with children who have cancer.
