Kingdom Housing Association has been shortlisted for a number of important awards in the housing sector – including five shortlistings in the Chartered Institute of Housing of Scotland Excellence Awards.
The Association has already received a number of awards and commendations this year and has now been shortlisted in the 24Housing Awards, with the eco-friendly Kingdom House at Pittenweem being shortlisted as Best Green Scheme and the Association’s development at Kincardine shortlisted in the Affordable Housing Scheme of the Year category.
The Kincardine development has also been shortlisted in the Best Affordable Housing Development category, by Inside Housing.
Last month Bill Banks, Kingdom group chief executive, was identified as one of 30 housing professionals, identified in the Scottish Housing Leaders list, published by Inside Housing.
The shortlist for the CIH Scotland Excellence Awards has very recently been announced and Kingdom has been successfully shortlisted in five different categories. These are: the Excellence in Skills Development Award; the Excellence in Regeneration Award; the Apprentice of the Year Award; the Excellence in Leadership Award and the Housing Team of the Year Excellence Award.
Bill Banks said: “Being shortlisted is a great achievement and all the staff involved in the different programmes should take credit for the recognition being gained from the awards.”
He added: “Kingdom has a long and successful track record of receiving awards. In the past, the majority have probably been design related awards, to recognise the new projects we have developed. Over the last year we have continued to submit new development projects for awards, however we have also tried to broaden this out and gain recognition for other areas of our work.”
