Duncanshill Elgin 2 EMR

Following hot on the heels of our success at the Highland Business Awards, our Duncanshill site has been named regional winner for Medium Development of the Year 2013 at the Premier Guarantee Excellence Awards.

The 29 new bungalows  at Duncanshill, which sit idyllically within the town next to Elgin Golf Course sold out within 16 weeks.

The development has a strong identity based on simplicity, understatement and quality. Architecturally the homes are deliberately simple, clean and contemporary while retaining the appeal and spirit of the bungalow.

The Premier Guarantee Excellence Awards are an invaluable opportunity to recognise some of the country’s leading developments. With the level of competition growing stronger each year winning this award is a true testament to the quality standards demonstrated on this exceptional development.

Built with sustainability in mind, all the homes beat 2010 standards featuring high levels of insulation and air tightness and incorporating heat recovery ventilation units. Some of the homes on the development form part of Springfield’s sustainability development programme with one home built to silver standard and another to Gold. These will be monitored as part of Springfield’s continuous improvement programme.

The Premier Guarantee judging panel undertook reviews of each of the shortlisted sites before deciding on the final  National and Regional winners.

We are very proud of this site and are delighted to have received this recognition.
