The event, which was attended by some 1,000 senior industry representatives and their guests, saw Cruden Homes take the award in the large home builder category, with Whiteburn Projects being celebrated as top SME and CCG (Scotland) crowned Home Builder of the Year (Affordable Housing Provider).
The three home builders were selected by the independent judging panel for their approaches to “going the extra mile” to deliver developments or practices which stood out from the crowd.
With all shortlisted development entries subject to a site visit by the panel as well as a separate online interview with senior management representatives, judges were hugely impressed by the headline winners, noting demonstrations of strong community engagement, high levels of customer satisfaction and a commendable focus on innovation across the board.
Chair of the independent judging panel David Knight, former Managing Director at Avant Homes, said:
“As Chair of this year’s refreshed judging panel, I was delighted to see such strong submissions from HFS members, particularly given the challenges of the past couple of years.
“These entries showcased organisations which are not only rising to the challenge of delivering more of the much-needed homes we require across the length and breadth of the country but are doing so in a way which goes above and beyond – that could be in terms of their use of innovative technologies or building techniques, creation of a sense of place and community or notable sustainability features – and all with the customer to the fore.
“The panel therefore congratulates all who entered and those taking home the top awards.”

Winner announced at the HFS Annual Lunch, with no prior shortlist released
With last year seeing an amalgamated 2020/21 shortlist and virtual awards showcase due to restrictions caused by the pandemic, updates to 2022 categories include a focus on the transition to net zero within the Innovation of the Year category – designed to showcase examples of real innovation within the sector as it contributes to a national commitment of net zero emissions by 2045.
In a further change, no prior shortlist has been released for the Associate Member of the Year category, with members of the HFS senior management team asked to nominate candidates within the HFS membership who have gone the extra mile, engaging with the organisation’s work and providing vital support to other members over the course of the year.
Reflecting the programme’s ongoing robust judging process, the independent panel will be undertaking site visits to all those shortlisted in the Development of the Year categories alongside corresponding online interviews to determine who will take one of three headline Home Builder of the Year awards. Those shortlisted under the Innovation of the Year (Transition to Net Zero) category will also be invited to an online interview.
Winners will be revealed at the Homes for Scotland Annual Lunch (sponsored by Burness Paull) at the EICC on Friday 20 May which will be hosted by impressionist and comedian Jon Culshaw. Over 900 senior industry representatives and guests are already confirmed to attend what remains the date in the Scottish home building industry calendar.
Chair of the independent judging panel David Knight, former Managing Director at Avant Homes said:
“I was delighted to be asked to Chair this year’s refreshed judging panel and have been hugely impressed by the demonstrations of “going above and beyond” which have been evident throughout the entries received.
“Whether that be examples of innovation, diversity, sustainability measures or meeting customer needs, HFS members have shown their commitment to delivering high quality places for people to live during what remain difficult circumstances.
“With the judges now set to embark on the site visit and interview stage of the process, I am very much looking forward to seeing these submissions come to life and to the difficult task of deciding upon the winners.”
