Thailand Property Awards 2016 Finalists Revealed

Of 214 entries, 36 companies have been whittled down

​​Thailand Property Awards 2016, organised by organised by PropertyGuru Group, Asia’s leading online property group, has received more than 200 developments have entered this year – up 32 percent from 2015 – and now the independent panel of judges have whittled down the list to 36 companies who will compete in 33 award categories.

“After a slightly improved performance during the first semester especially in the luxury segment, the domestic real estate sector wishes to continue its streak at the industry’s biggest annual event, the Thailand Property Awards, which now enters its second decade” says Terry Blackburn (photo: 4th from left), founder and managing director of the Asia Property Awards.

“We have a fantastic judging panel and a roster of outstanding finalists that symbolise the Thai property sector’s resilience. For developers to stay competitive, the quality of their projects has gotten better year after year amidst the economic and socio-political challenges facing the industry. We received a lot more entries in the design categories than previous years, and it’s quite exciting to see who will shine during the awards ceremony,” he adds.

“2016 has been the most challenging year since I joined the central judging panel in 2014,” according to Suphin Mechuchep (photo: 5th from left), managing director at Jones Lang LaSalle (Thailand), and chairperson of the judges.

“There were a total of 214 of entries, a significant increase from only 163 last year. All of the judges spent a lot more time and effort than previous years on entry reviews and site visits. But it has also been a great experience as we have had excellent opportunities to meet with many interesting property developers as well as designers and architects who are involved in these projects.”

In the awards programme’s 11-year history, the Thailand Property Awards have gathered the top experts in the fields of real estate development, advisory, consultancy, management, architecture and design to sit on the esteemed judging panel. Presiding the jurors this year is returning judge Dr Manop Bongsadadt (photo: 6th from left), renowned professor of architecture at Bangkok’s Chulalongkorn University and president of the 2016 judging panel.

“Apart from quality of design and construction, the judging criteria covers many other major aspects such a locational advantage, design concept, marketing success, sustainability and value for money for customers,” says Mrs. Suphin.

To ensure fairness and transparency for which the Thailand Property Awards is known, BDO, one of the world’s largest accounting and auditing firms, supervised the entire nomination period, site visits, and the meticulous judging process up until the judges’ final deliberations in late August.

Winners will be revealed during the exclusive, black-tie gala dinner on Thursday, 22 September, at the prestigious Plaza Athenee Bangkok. An estimated 600 industry-leading figures and top real estate executives are expected to join the event.

Finalists in the Development section will seek to win in their respective categories in order to qualify for the Best of the Best awards – including Best Housing Development (Thailand), Best Condo Development (Thailand) and Best Commercial Development (Thailand) – that will allow them to move on to the ASEAN grand finale and represent Thailand at the 6th South East Asia Property Awards in Singapore this November.

Aside from the 33 shortlist categories, the Thailand Property Awards will recognise an individual who has contributed significantly to the local property sector in the past year. Presented by the editors of industry-leading Property Report magazine, the Real Estate Personality of Year accolade will be the only award not selected by the independent judging panel.
