Nominations are Open!
The Thailand Property Awards nominations for the Eastern Seaboard’s Best Condominium Development and Best Villa Development are being submitted now until June 30, with the nominated developments submitting entry forms until July 7.
Eastern Seaboard site visits will be conducted from July 24 to August 4, with the Central and Regional panel judges’ final scoring meeting on August 9.
Yes, once again we are quickly approaching the eagerly-awaited annual event that recognizes the residential sector’s leading real estate professionals, property developers, interior designers, and architects.
Along with this year’s Best Villa and Best Condo Developments for the Eastern Seaboard, nominations and entries are also being made in national categories including Best Developer, Best Boutique Developer, Best Commercial Development (Retail), Best Commercial Development (Office), Best Commercial Development (Hotel), Best Residential Architectural Design, Best Residential Interior Design, Best Hotel Interior Design, Best Retail Architectural Design, Best Office Architectural Design, Best Hotel Architectural Design, Best Landscape Architectural Design, Best Green Development, Special Recognition in CSR and Special Recognition in Universal Design (a brand new category this year).
For more than 10 years this event has established itself as the highest symbol of achievement that a company or an individual can receive in Thailand’s residential, commercial, design and hospitality real estate industries.
In order to avoid any concerns of favoritism, the organizers use a panel of independent judges, and the entire judging process is monitored by one of the world’s leading internal auditing firms, BDO Advisory Thailand–official supervisor of the event.
Having said that, you might ask how these awards are decided and what is the process that produces the winners.
The Thailand Property Awards central (Bangkok) and regional panel of judges are comprised of leading Thai professionals, i.e., real estate agents, appraisers, lawyers, architects, etc., who examine and score all nominees.
In the Development Awards category, the central and regional judging panels examine and score each nominee and then submit their initial short-lists of five properties for each category to Paul Ashburn of BDO Advisory.
Next, the head judges for the regional panels and their appointed judging teams inspect all nominees in their respective regions.
Eastern Seaboard judges include regional head panel judge and organizer Clayton Wade, honorary judge Pongstorn Sangruchi, Teresa Biesty, a seasoned national panel judge and long-time Eastern Seaboard judge, and Vera Key, joining us for her third year. There will be at least three to five scoring judges who will make each and every property site visit to complete the process of identifying the best properties in each of the above categories.
The actual on-site judging procedures for will score each property based upon the criteria of design/concept, value for money, sales success and construction.
