Property undergraduates go head-to-head to be crowned Britain's best
May 28 2021
Women in Property have hailed undergraduates Abby Hopes and Daniela Federer for their talent, skill and ambition following their annual student awards.
Representing central and northern Scotland respectively both finalists will go head to head with 19 others for the UK national awards at a best of the best dinner, scheduled to take place in London on 16 September.
Federer, who is studying BDes (Hons) in interior & environmental design at the University of Dundee, was praised by jurors for demonstrating 'a mature manner, she is talented and creative, communicated well and has a formidable set of skills.'
She is joined by Hopes, who is enrolled for a BA Architecture at Glasgow School of Art, who will represent the central belt for being: 'exceptional, engaged, animated, she will make things happen. She is self-aware and objective with huge empathy for others - a rare attribute.'
Lauding both winners Laura Banks, Central Scotland branch chairman of Women in Property, said: “All of us who sat on the judging panels were incredibly impressed with these young women. They’ve had a tough year, studying under challenging conditions, so all credit to them. They will be a huge asset to the industry when they graduate in a year or so.”
The awards are open to undergraduates studying for property and construction-related degrees, with candidates nominated directly by their universities.
