National Commendation for Perth Builders
Published on 23 May 2016
A Perth-based housebuilding firm has been awarded a Commendation in Scotland’s premier industry awards.
A&J Stephen was one of only three firms to reach the shortlist of the ‘Private Development of the Year’ (medium: 26-99 units) category of the Homes for Scotland Awards 2016 for its contribution to the first phase at Scotland’s largest new town, Chapelton, just outside Aberdeen.
The family firm, which dates back to 1935, is creating a wide selection of homes at Chapelton, ranging from two to six bedroom terraced, semi and detached villas, all designed to cater for today’s lifestyle choices.
Prior to the awards, Kareen Davidson, Chair of the independent judging panel commented, “We have highlighted those companies who have demonstrated a stand-out approach to customer needs, design quality and the placemaking and sustainability agendas as well as those supporting organisations who have added value to the sector whilst showcasing an impressive competitive edge.”
Receiving the commendation at the Homes for Scotland Annual Lunch at the EICC on Friday 20 May 2016, John Stephen, Managing Director, Stephen said, “We are delighted that Chapelton has achieved this industry recognition at such an early stage in the New Town’s development. The teams involved have taken great care to deliver on the design philosophy of what is fast becoming one of the most sought-after communities in Scotland.”
With a string of National House-Building Council (NHBC) ‘Pride in the Job’ awards cementing its reputation for quality housebuilding, Stephen is the name behind a host of prestigious and highly popular developments throughout Scotland, all chosen for their outstanding locations.
