Nominations have opened for awards celebrating achievements and innovation within Guernsey’s property and construction industry.
The gala dinner for the Guernsey Property & Construction Awards will take place on Thursday 4 November at the St Pierre Park Hotel.
The awards feature a wide range of categories for property experts, investors, contractors, architects, legal advisers, engineers, developers, and include a number of new categories for 2021, including one specifically for gardening and landscaping professionals.
All categories are free to enter and are judged by a panel of industry experts.
“Given the difficult past twelve months experienced by everyone in the industry, it is pleasing to be able to plan for this year’s awards," said Julie Todd, Co-Founder and Organiser of the awards, which are in their eighth year.
"With shifting priorities since the pandemic, the industry is adapting to new requirements and new public demands, and the thought of celebrating together at one huge event at the end of 2021 is wonderful.
“Everyone - from estate agents to landscapers, constructors to engineers - have truly been challenged this last year, so it’s exciting to be able to put on an event where we can all let our hair down and have fun.”
The categories are:
Auburn Gardens Director Jack Etheridge was pleased to see the new landscaping category, which makes its first appearance in the awards.
"It’s a great opportunity for the many skilled landscapers, garden designers, professional gardeners and contractors to showcase the fantastic work that is being regularly created in Guernsey for the first time in a professional award context.
"I would encourage everyone to nominate in the awards and am looking forward to a superb evening in November.”
Guernsey property specialist Martyn Baudains - a Partner at the event's gold sponsor Ogier - said there was a lot of outstanding practice to celebrate.
“We know that 2020 was a good year for the local property market but it was also a very tough year for the island's construction industry – and how the industry confronted those challenges is certainly worthy of recognition and celebration.
“I'm really excited about returning to the judging panel and seeing the outstanding achievements across the categories."
The public nomination period is now open and will run until 27 August.
Previous winners have included Peter Falla from PF & A Architecture, Watts Property Consultants and the Fermain Tower project. Mrs Todd thanked the vent's sponsors - Ogier (gold); Savills; the CIOB; Guernsey Construction Forum; Channel Island Ceramics; HVC; the Norman Piette group and Sandra Robinson Kitchens (silver) - for their support.
