Kingdom in running for awards
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.”
