Drum Property Group has once again scooped the ultimate accolade at this year’s Scottish Property Awards, winning the coveted Property Company of the Year award for the second year running.
It is the fourth time in the last six years that Drum has won the awards’ major prize, making it the most successful company in the seven-year history of the Scottish Property Awards.
More than 800 guests from across Scotland attended the event in Edinburgh on Thursday (February 20) which has now become the property industry’s largest annual celebration of commercial and public property.
The Property Company of the Year award reflects another successful year for Drum, with the group further enhancing its position as the market-leader for transformational development projects across Scotland.
Drum currently has 2,500,000 sq. ft. of live development in Scotland, together with a £900m project pipeline.
The judges’ comments reflected Drum’s continued growth during the last 12-months, and the group’s increasing impact on the commercial property sector both in Scotland and across the UK.
Drum were recognised “for their pursuit of opportunity, and ability to deliver large scale projects in a variety of locations including Buchanan Wharf, one of Glasgow’s largest urban regeneration schemes.”
Graeme Bone, Group Managing Director of Drum, (pictured with the award), said, “We are obviously very pleased for Drum to be recognised at the awards once again, and are especially proud to be named Property Company of the Year for the fourth time in the past six years.
'The award reflects the dedication and commitment of the Drum team as we continue to create and deliver transformational development activity throughout Scotland.
'During 2019, the company launched a significant number of projects and secured operator commitments for over 900,000 sq. ft of development in Scotland, building on the success of previous years and further enhancing our significant market share.
'This included the agreement of the first institutional build-to-rent transaction in Scotland -a hugely significant deal which should act as a catalyst for a new wave of institutional investment in the country.
'We look forward to continuing to build an exciting pipeline of new projects to build on this success in the coming years.”
