We are delighted to have been named ‘Home Builder of the Year – Large’ at the prestigious Homes for Scotland Awards. Our East of Scotland team also picked up the prize for ‘Development of the Year – Medium’ for Newington Residencies in Edinburgh.
Adopting the theme of ‘People, Place, Planet’, the awards took place at the HFS annual lunch in the capital on Friday 26th May, with a focus on environmental, sustainable and social values.
Judges for the awards praised Cala for our overall business approach, and in particular for broadening the range of locations in which we build. They noted that our team has taken on the complexities and challenges of developing brownfield and city centre sites, broadening our knowledge and experience to achieve “great outcomes for places and communities”.
At Newington Residencies, the judges said Cala is “expertly blending the new alongside the restored…preserving character and identity”. They noted the development’s diversity of house types and applauded our approach to sustainability to achieve new build efficiency levels.
Jennifer Wylie, Regional Chair for Scotland at Cala Homes, said: “We are so proud to have won the Home Builder of the Year title once again, and to have been recognised for Newington Residencies, particularly with the focus of this year’s event on ‘People, Place, Planet’.
“These three tenants absolutely ring true at Cala, running through everything we do. Our Sustainability Strategy continues to guide how we build homes and run our business; building thriving communities – not just homes – is what drives us; and our people are truly what makes us who we are. Their work and dedication are the reason we are an award-winning homebuilder.”
