Some of the region’s best known personalities along with companies and property developments were recognised at the Yorkshire Property Awards 2012 which were held on Thursday 10 May at Rudding Park Hotel, Harrogate and raised nearly £150,000 for Variety, the Children’s Charity.

Sponsored by law firm, Addleshaw Goddard, the awards attracted an audience of 800 (mainly representing the property industry) who once again gave generously to help Variety continue to make a difference to the lives of disabled and disadvantaged children in the Yorkshire region.

Well known business man Edward Ziff was presented with a Life Time Achievement award whilst Best Contractor went to GMI Construction Group.

Best Commercial Development award was picked up by Gregory Property Group for the Broad Street development in Halifax.

Winner of the Corporate Social Responsibility Award went to Dean Clough Ltd with Wakefield based DLA Architecture Limited being recognised as Best Architect.

RBA (Richard Boothroyd & Associates) were awarded with Property Consultant of the year and good team work led to Barclays winning the Property Funding Team award.

Duncan Syers, a member of the Yorkshire committee of Variety and one of the organisers of the event, said:

“Despite the hard times the property market is currently experiencing this year’s entrants were of a high calibre and the judging panel had a tough job selecting the winners of the 11 categories.”
