Colaren win NHBC Pride in the Job and Seal of Excellence Awards

We are delighted to announce that we’ve done extremely well in the NHBC Pride in the Job Awards for Scotland this year. Not only did we return with a Pride in the Job award but also a Seal of Excellence for our Lakeview development in Strichen.

Site Manager John Wemyss was awarded the prestigious accolade for the fantastic work done on this project.

Lakeview is a stunning development from Colaren Properties which has been constructed in a rural, wooded area of Strichen, Aberdeenshire, overlooking Strichen Community Lake.

The new development has proved extremely popular with home buyers, with plots selling very quickly once they are placed on the market.

Such is the high standard of the development that it came no real surprise to see Lakeview appear on the list of winners for an NHBC Pride in the Job Award 2013. Site manager John Wemyss was given the award for his work on the development, which is shortly set to reach completion.

Lakeview is an 18 property development, compromising a mix of three, four and five-bedroom houses. The development has been built to meet the highest standards of quality, with houses ranging in price from £169,500 to £279,500.

Colaren Properties is the main contractor on Lakeview, with Baxter Design as the architectural consultant.

Phillip Baxter, Managing Director of Baxter Design

“The project has been very successful and the site manager John Wemyss has done very well. I’ve been in this business for 35 years and in this time I’ve been associated with many award-winning projects, but it is always great to continue to be involved with projects such as this which has won the NHBC Pride in the Job award.”

Colin Smith, Managing Director of Colaren Properties

“Lakeview has been a fantastic development for us as it is located within a truly unique site on the outskirts of the village, adjacent to an existing lake and coffee shop. There is a churchyard to the east and agricultural fields to the south so it gives you the feel that Lakeview is set within the country side. Strichen is a beautiful village with great community spirit. We are delighted the development has sold out in such a short space of time.”
