Scottish Property Awards


The Scottish Property Awards 2017 took place at the Edinburgh Corn Exchange on Thursday 2nd March and were a roaring success.

Graham + Sibbald are very pleased that the 'Deal of the Year' award was won by LaSalle Investment Management and Dandara for Forbes Place, Aberdeen. Both of whom are G+S clients.

G+S Building Surveying department were appointed by LaSalle once the clients had concluded the deal in summer 2015. G+S are carrying out an active Project Development Monitoring Role on behalf of LaSalle and have had a close relationship undertaking a similar role for a number of years.

Our Alastair Welch has had a particular interest in Forbes Place as he has headed the development of the 5.5 acre site within the Stoneywood Estate in Dyce right from the start of the deal. The Estate is due to complete in Q2 of this year and will comprise 292 residential units made up of 276 apartments and 16 townhouses, all of which are to be let out as Scotland's first institutionally funded 'Build to Rent' or PRS development.

We are delighted that Dandara and LaSalle have won this award and wish them further success in the future.
