GRS HOMES GOING FOR A GONG
They say good things come in threes. Well, we must be in for a welcome surprise soon, because we’ve just had two bits of good news this week.
It’s just been announced that GRS Homes have been nominated in three categories for the prestigious Scottish Homes Awards. These recognise excellence in the house building industry and we’ve been nominated, along with our colleagues at Arka Architects, for our newly-completed town centre development at Comely Place in Falkirk.
We’re in for the House of the Year, Starter Home of the Year and Architectural Excellence (Single Dwelling House) sections – so fingers crossed all round that we’re celebrating at the award ceremony at the EICC in Edinburgh in a few weeks’ time.
Without blowing our own trumpet too much, we’re no strangers to this sort of thing, of course. This is the fifth year in a row we’ve been put forward for these awards and we see it as recognition of the fact that we incorporate innovate and exciting designs from Arka into the quality of the homes we’re known for.
This week, with such news to announce, we sat down with our friend Tom from Steeple Media, who looks after our PR and video production. Tom and I consulted on a media release we’re sure we’ll make the local press and radio – at least.
And the second piece of good news? After lengthy negotiations, we’ve just bought a new site which we’re sure will be attractive to would-be buyers looking for quality and luxurious living within walking distance of Falkirk town centre.
We reckon we can build three sumptuous town houses a only a few hundred yards away from all the town’s amenities, including shops, schools and the transport network.
And without giving too much away at this stage, the site is off-road and nestles in woodland. You would never guess you can be in the Woodside Inn in five minutes!
