The Thailand Property Awards will return on 31 August 2018 with the country’s best and most active developers to be honoured. Nominations are now open for the public and will be accepted until 8 June 2018. In addition to the traditional awards, several new categories are being introduced this year bringing the total to 40.
The new categories include Best Smart Home Development, Best Co-Working Space Development and Best Senior Living Development, as well as the Special Recognition for Public Facility award, which is open to healthcare, education, public service, transportation, public assembly and religious facilities that are owned, leased, or operated by a governmental or public entity.
The independent panel of judges’ decision to recognise the growing popularity of co-working spaces was partly due to the dramatic increase of new office and multi-purpose buildings in Bangkok that cater to the diverse types of workers today. In the past, most workers utilised traditional office spaces, but now many people work independently online and may not need a traditional office.
JLL Thailand Managing Director Suphin Mechuchep has been reappointed as Chairperson of the independent judging panel. She noted that the Thailand Property Awards continues to gain respect and awareness, and believes the addition of new categories will help this. The judging panel expects to receive high calibre entries and will begin to conduct site inspections and deliberate on the merits of eligible entrants in the coming months.
“The developments and developers alike will benefit from the endorsement of quality by this prestigious awards programme and help set an example and encourage excellence in Thailand’s property industry. Cities around the world are competing for recognition. Among the many areas they are competing in are property developments that raise eyebrows,” said Suphin in a press release.
