Alongside the Best Developer Award, Raimon Land took home Best Condo Development (Phuket) for The Heights, Best Condo Development (Eastern Seaboard) for Northpoint in Pattaya, and Best Development Website for the second consecutive year for www.theriverbangkok.com.

Raimon Land Chief Executive Officer, Nigel Cornick, said winning the Best Developer Award for the second time as well as prizes for projects in Bangkok, Pattaya and Phuket was a strong indication of the company?s accomplishments.

?I am thrilled for everyone involved as this is clear recognition of the progress we have made and continue to make in setting new standards in luxury property development in Thailand.?

Ensign Media Managing Director, Duncan Worthington, the organisers of Thailand Property Award, said ?Three years on and a lot has changed in Thailand’s real estate industry. Developments have improved at all levels and the bar has been raised. We believe the Thailand Property Awards have helped contribute to this and will continue to push the envelope each year. For a company to have won Best Developer for two consecutive years is a significant achievement indeed. This year competition was tougher than ever with major real estate developers from all over Thailand vying for the honour. Congratulations to Raimon Land PLC for their success again this year.”

Raimon Land presented six of its most successful developments that were completed within the last five years in the Best Developer award entry: The Lofts Sathorn, The Lofts Yennakart, The Lakes and The Legend in Bangkok, Northshore in Pattaya, and Kata Gardens in Phuket.

The awards were decided by a panel of 22 independent judges from different disciplines in the industry in Bangkok, Phuket, Koh Samui, Pattaya and Hua Hin, under the supervision of the Ethics Committee.

The judging process was overseen by BDO Richfield Advisory and followed strict regulations to ensure there were no conflicts of interest, and that all judges remained completely anonymous. The panel weighed five criteria when making the selection, to which Raimon Land demonstrated how it achieved its core principles: intelligence, innovation, integrity and being a socially responsible member of the community.

?We presented the competition judges with our recent achievements that led to a 2007 total sales value of THB6.2 billion and 2008 figures of THB4.9 billion to date, well on track to meet our forecasted 21% year-on-year increase to THB7.5 billion,? Mr Cornick said.

?We then demonstrated how we delivered projects on time and to original specifications, raised the bar in construction quality and design standards as well as use innovative thinking in all aspects of the business from financing to smart home systems technology.?

Addressing environmental issues, customer care, research and corporate social responsibility were the other key areas in which the luxury developer proved its strengths.

?We have introduced cutting-edge environmental developments such as efficient water-cooled air conditioning systems and solar powered common area lighting, as well as launched a comprehensive Customer Relationship Management programme using world-standard automated tracking systems and dedicated customer relations teams in each development,? said Mr Cornick.

Raimon Land further pointed to the debut of the Why Invest? series for Pattaya and Phuket along with the expansion of the Condominium Focus research publication, all of which analyse the market and show the opportunity for potential buyers to achieve strong capital gains and rental yields.

To demonstrate its corporate social responsibility efforts, Raimon Land presented its Plant A Tree Foundation?s sapling farm in Khao Yai to offset the company?s carbon emissions, the construction of a dormitory complex for children at the Mercy Centre in Klong Toey, its funding of a school for the children of labourers on its Pattaya sites, and the sponsorship of sporting events such as the King?s Cup Regatta, Top of the Gulf Regatta and the King?s Cup Elephant Polo event.

Contributing to the Best Condo Development Awards for Northpoint and The Heights Phuket were the projects? investment in their unique promise of ?what you see in the Show Suites is exactly what you get in your home,? which led to impressive sales records.

For the Best Development Website Award, Raimon Land presented The River website?s sophisticated design that reflects the mood and tone of the project, The River Life campaign created to foster a sense of community on the Chao Phraya and its innovative Floor Plan guide, CGI flythrough, 360-degree site view and state-of-the-art virtual tour of The River Promenade and its Show Suites.
