Capital Return for Scottish Property Awards 2020

The 7th annual Scottish Property Awards, the independent programme which celebrates the best in Scottish commercial and public property, will return to Edinburgh in 2020 or the first time in three years.

Taking place in February at the EICC, the awards will bring together the breadth of the industry including developers, funders, agents, architects, councils, agents, professional advisers and contractors. 

Entries are now being invited in advance of the judging day in November, which will be chaired for the fifth year by Fiona Morton, the former managing partner and chairman of Ryden.  She welcomes industry veteran, Alan Robertson to the panel for a second year in the new position of Vice Chair.

Fiona Morton commented;

 “The Scottish Property Awards continues to play an important role in the promotion of new property development across Scotland.  It is a privilege to be part of the very thorough decision-making process involved and I look forward to debating the achievements of a wide range of projects and teams with the judging panel in November.   I am especially thrilled to welcome Alan Robertson as our new Vice Chair of the panel.”

Following a 30-year career with JLL, Alan returned to Scotland in 2018 from Dubai where he was CEO of JLL in the Middle East & North Africa region.  Now based in Edinburgh, he is working to develop a portfolio of non-executive and real estate related activities and is a non-executive director of Drum Income Plus REIT plc, and a director of family owned property company, Struan Property Ltd.

He commented;

“I’ve been very impressed by the Scottish Property Awards and its independent operation which trusts a large and experienced panel of judges to make the important decisions.  I am very much looking forward to assessing and ultimately celebrating the many achievements in commercial and public property this year.”

Entrants now have until Wednesday 30th October 2019 to submit their work for consideration by the judging panel.  The competition is free to enter and this year’s entry guide, terms and conditions and online entry forms can be found here.
