King­dom in run­ning for awards

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - NEWS -

King­dom Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion has been short­listed for a num­ber of awards.

It is named in five cat­e­gories in the Char­tered In­sti­tute of Hous­ing (CIH) of Scot­land Ex­cel­lence Awards.

The as­so­ci­a­tion is in the run­ning for prizes for ex­cel­lence in skills de­vel­op­ment, lead­er­ship and re­gen­er­a­tion, as well as CIH Scot­land’s hous­ing team and ap­pren­tice of the year ti­tles.

King­dom has also been short­listed in the 24Hous­ing Awards for its eco-friendly King­dom House at Pit­ten­weem and its de­vel­op­ment at Kin­car­dine.

The Kin­car­dine scheme is also a con­tender for In­side Hous­ing’s best af­ford­able hous­ing de­vel­op­ment award.

The project pro­vided new homes for many res­i­dents who had been de­canted from three 1960s tower blocks, the last of which was de­mol­ished in 2013.

King­dom chief ex­ec­u­tive Bill Banks said: “Be­ing short­listed is a great achieve­ment and all the staff in­volved in the dif­fer­ent pro­grammes should take credit for the recog­ni­tion be­ing gained from the awards.

“King­dom has a long and suc­cess­ful track record of re­ceiv­ing awards,” he added.

“In the past, the ma­jor­ity have prob­a­bly been de­sign­re­lated awards, to recog­nise the projects we have de­vel­oped.

“Over the last year we have con­tin­ued to sub­mit new de­vel­op­ment projects for awards. How­ever, we have also tried to broaden this out and gain recog­ni­tion for other ar­eas of our work.”
