It was another night to remember as Calgary’s home building industry celebrated its biggest night of the year at the 30th SAM Awards gala.

Brookfield Residential took home the Builder of the Year honours. Other Grand SAM winners are: Timber Tech Truss Inc. for Partner of the Year; Riverview Custom Homes for Builder of Merit; Renova Luxury Renovations for Renovator of the Year; and Hopewell Residential Managaement LP for Multi-family Builder of the Year.

BILD Calgary Region (formerly CHBA-UDI Calgary) had close to 800 entries for the 2016 SAM Award, noting that the economy did not suppress member enthusiasm to compete for 60 industry awards. Winners were announced at the April 8, 2017 SAM Awards Gala at the Telus Convention Centre.

“For three decades the SAM Awards have demonstrated the determination and innovation of member companies, and this year will be no different,” says Shane Wenzel, chair of the SAM committee. “This year we celebrate the SAM Award’s 30th anniversary and the first Awards for BILD Calgary Region, the new identity of the association.”
