CALA hails success double at Scottish Home Awards
CALA Homes emerged as the big winner at the first digital Scottish Home Awards last week.
The firm landed the biggest award of the night, Housebuilder of the Year (100+ units), while its East of Scotland division secured one of the most highly contested categories, Innovation in Design, for its Waterfront Plaza development in Leith.
Held virtually on October 29, the 13th annual awards crowned 18 housebuilders in what was a record year of entries from 109 Scottish businesses.
In the digital ceremony, broadcast live from Glasgow and hosted by radio DJ Des Clark, CALA Homes was celebrated for its high-quality developments, training initiatives, sustainability practices and zero carbon goals, which raised it above other entries.
Waterfront Plaza was praised for its modern take on the historic Edinburgh colonies in the Innovation in Design category.
David McGrath, regional chairman for CALA Homes, said: “To see CALA recognised at such a major industry event is incredibly rewarding.
“The entire CALA team works incredibly hard to deliver amazing homes and maintain the highest standards of housebuilding, innovation and customer excellence.
“Winning the Innovation in Design category shines a light on all of the hard work of our in-house architecture and design teams, who worked with local consultants EMA Architects to create a truly modern interpretation of a classic Edinburgh design.”
CALA was also shortlisted for Housing Development of the Year (Small) for its Fentoun Green development in Gullane, and Housing Development of the Year (Large) for Ravelrig Heights in Balerno.
