Let’s put the best to the test

An ex­pert panel of judges has been as­sem­bled to check the cre­den­tials of en­tries to 2016’s pres­ti­gious awards

JUDG­ING is un­der­way in The Her­ald Prop­erty Awards for Scot­land 2016, in as­so­ci­a­tion with Bur­ness Paull. Through­out the sum­mer ev­ery sin­gle house, apartment, de­vel­op­ment, con­ver­sion, re­gen­er­a­tion scheme and com­mer­cial prop­erty that has been en­tered into the awards will be scru­ti­nised.

Stan­dards are rig­or­ous and only prop­er­ties of the high­est level will make the short­list in this, the 10th an­niver­sary of the awards. Across all cat­e­gories, a record num­ber of en­tries has been re­ceived demon­strat­ing both the strength of the house build­ing in­dus­try in Scot­land and the es­teem in which The Her­ald Prop­erty Awards are held.

That rep­u­ta­tion is due in no small part to the cal­i­bre of the judg­ing panel, which reads like a Who’s Who of the most re­spected names in prop­erty in Scot­land.

They come from a wide sec­tor but each brings with them an un­ri­valled breadth of knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence.

Most have been judges for the awards for some time, but this year Richard Blair of AHR Ar­chi­tects and Sara Ser­avalli, of prop­erty events com­pany, Dou­ble S Events, join the panel.
