Hebhomes, alongside our affiliated contractor Simpson Builders, have won the Green Building Award at the Herald Property Awards for Scotland 2022. Presented at a glittering ceremony in the Glasgow Hilton Hotel, this category was created to recognise outstanding green practice in construction.
The judges commented, ' As we head towards a zero carbon future this category aims to recognise those who have already begun that journey and are today delivering a product which is ready for the future challenges. The purchase of a property is a long term investment and choices made today have long term effects. Homes created must however still meet the needs of occupiers. Entries will be judged on the quality of design, layout, location, features and specification, local amenities (reduction on car dependence) energy efficiency, green aspects (non carbon heating, solar/wind generation, future proofing, recycyling, electric vehicle charging points)'.
Sponsored by Lowther, who are part of the Wheatley group, this was the first year of the green category for best building. Hebhomes managing director Alasdair Stephen said,
'At Hebhomes we pride ourselves in our green credentials. It is imperative for the future of our planet that new buildings meet the carbon and energy challenges. But to succeed we don't only need good design and specification but also excellent contractors who care about quality. Simpson Builders always provide that service.
It also requires the vision and committment of the client. Willie and Fiona Finlayson were a joy to work with and have built a superb house.'
