Wavensmere Homes, the company behind Derby’s Nightingale Quarter residential scheme, has received multiple nominations in a regional property awards.

The company, which is building 800 homes on the site of the former Derbyshire Royal Infirmary, has been shortlisted in several categories at Insider’s Midlands Residential Property Awards.

Wavensmere Homes is a finalist in five of the 15 categories, following a record number of entries.

The company is up for Urban & City Living Developer of the Year and Housebuilder of the Year.

And the Nightingale Quarter scheme, which is being delivered by Wavensmere Homes and BBS Capital, has been shortlisted for Placemaking Project of the Year.

Elsewhere, the firm’s Crocketts Lane scheme, in Smethwick, has been shortlisted for Residential Development of the Year (more than 100 units) and Apartment Development of the Year.

Another project, The Forge, in Digbeth, which Wavensmere Homes is involved in, is also up for Apartment Development of the Year.

Meanwhile, another Marketing Derby Bondholder, Cameron Homes, is shortlisted in the Small Residential Development of the Year (fewer than 100 units) category for its Spinners Grange scheme, at Blockley.

Now in their sixth year, the Midlands Residential Property Awards this year secured 77 submissions from 46 organisations, compared to last year’s 60 entries.

Ian Griffin, Insider’s business editor, said: “We already knew the Midlands’ residential property sector was robust and innovative. The strong growth in entry numbers only goes to highlight this.

“There’s a wide range of projects in this year’s shortlist, both in terms of the types of homes and their geographical location.

“There’s everything from a scheme involving a handful of homes to deals which are set to create thousands of new dwellings.”

The winners of the 15 categories, as well as a Property Personality of the Year, will be announced at a gala dinner on Thursday 24 June at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre.
