Drum Property Group named Property Company of the Year
Drum Property Group’s position as one of the leading players in the Scottish and UK property industry has been further recognised after winning Property Company of the Year at the prestigious 2019 Scottish Property Awards.
The judging panel commended Drum’s continued growth over the last 12 months and the impact of the company’s activity on the commercial property sector.
Drum is currently developing almost half a million sq. ft. at Buchanan Wharf and its office deal with Barclays Bank last year is one of the single largest commercial property deals in living memory. Barclays, which will own the new office complex, will provide accommodation for up to 5,000 employees - doubling its workforce in Scotland.
Welcoming the award, Graeme Bone, group managing director at Drum, said: “We are obviously delighted for Drum’s continued growth to be recognised at the awards and are particularly proud to be named Property Company of the Year. This reflects our continued growth and impact across Scotland and the UK.
“The award is a fitting testament to the dedication and commitment of the team, following a period of significant activity across the central belt over the past year. In addition to the major projects already underway, we have an exciting pipeline of new projects and are looking forward to continuing to build on this success in 2019 and beyond.”
Fiona Morton, chair of the judging panel, added: “On behalf of the judging panel, I would like to extend congratulations to all the finalists and winners in this year’s Scottish Property Awards. 2019 saw the greatest number of both entries and firms in the competition’s 6-year history which is testament to the credibility of the programme.
“I hope that the winners of this year’s awards take time to celebrate their success in what has been another phenomenal year for public and commercial property in Scotland.”
