Cruden takes home Large Home Builder of the Year as it scoops double win at Homes for Scotland Awards

Posted: 25th May 2022

One of Scotland’s leading independent development and construction companies, Cruden Homes, has secured the prestigious title of Large Home Builder of the Year alongside the Development of the Year – Small accolade at this year’s Homes For Scotland Awards 2022. The annual event took place on Friday 20th May at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre, bringing together key players from the Scottish construction industry to celebrate the sector’s greatest achievements from an array of innovative home building projects across the country.

Awarded the highly sought-after title of ‘Large Home Builder of the Year’, Cruden Homes was praised by judges for its high quality finish and carefully thought out designs. The developer was deemed a testimony to this year’s panel theme of “going the extra mile” and stood out from the crowd due to its sheer dedication to creating all-encompassing community developments for homebuyers.

Cruden Homes’ stylish development for those exclusively aged 55 and over, Muirwood Gardens, also received the prize for ‘Development of the Year – Small’. Offering a mix of modern two and three-bed bungalows, villas and cottage flats, Muirwood Gardens has been developed by Juniper Residential, sister company of Cruden Homes. The development is conveniently located within close proximity of the historic town of Kinross and on-site amenities at Muirwood Gardens boast superb hotel-inspired communal areas such as a residential club lounge and luxury guest suite for visitors.

Delighted to have secured the Home Builder of the Year title, Steven Simpson, Managing Director, Cruden Homes East, said:

“My team and I are thrilled to have Cruden Homes recognised as a pioneering player in the Scottish homebuilding industry.

“Winning Large Home Builder of the Year is extra special, particularly as our sector continues to overcome the challenges faced through the pandemic. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of our staff, we have come back stronger than ever and we look forward to delivering more sustainable, community-driven developments in the future.

“Cruden is committed to creating sustainable homes which successfully pair comfort and functionality with quality and style. Our customers are at the heart of our designs and we do our utmost to ensure that the living spaces we create are carefully curated with them in mind.”
