Albyn shortlisted at national CIH awards

Monday 1 October 2018

We have received three shortlist nominations for the Scottish national Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) awards.

We have been shortlisted in the following categories: Housing Team of the Year, Excellence in Housing Innovation and the Bob Allan Young Achiever in Housing Award.

The CIH awards are in their eleventh year and aim to celebrate the passion and commitment of the sector’s unsung heroes as well as exemplary housing projects, best practice and innovative ways of working.

Calum Macaulay, our Chief Executive, said: “It’s a real honour to be shortlisted for not one or two, but three awards at the CIH awards ceremony. These nominations represent the dedication, commitment and ambition of each and every individual at Albyn and their ongoing drive towards to support sustainable tenancies and thriving communities across the region.

“Albyn has undergone a notable transformation in recent years and I think our shortlisting really signals the success of this. Our teams clearly put tenants and tenant satisfaction at the forefront of our business. Their commitment has enabled the implementation of many innovative initiatives such as zero day voids, mid-market rent, choice-based lettings and the FitHomes project, which all help to improve services and enhance the long term sustainability of our organisations.

“I’d like to wish everyone the best of luck at the final in November.”

We will have to wait until 2 November to find out if we have been successful in securing a trophy at the CIH ceremony in EICC, Edinburgh.
