The Sam awards are given out by the Canadian Home Builders’ Association in each region across Canada.

In it’s 26th year, the SAM Award honour excellence, quality workmanship, leadership in the industry and innovation in Calgary’s residential construction industry.

The SAM award process is judged by volunteer industry peers through a comprehensive submission process with judges awarding points in each category. The top five in each category receive additional points that help determine the Grand SAM winners. Grand Sam winners in each region go on to the Canadian SAM awards to determine the best home builders in Canada.

Ready to make our national television debut

Karoleena featured on Dragons Den

It was only a matter of time before Karoleena’s ever-inventive and enthusiastic pair of founding partners Kurt and Kris Goodjohn would take their swiftly growing company all the way to Toronto, to boldly pitch a modular building process to a den full of CBC Dragons.
And while we can’t tell you exactly what happened when our fearless leaders faced the panel, we can tell you that you’re not going to want to miss this episode. Think end of March, and think positive…

Karoleena innovation in action

A faster version of the original Karoleena modular technology timelapse video, this version shows an entire house being put together in a matter of three days for the 2010 Calgary Home + Garden Show. Karoleena Homes’ innovative process allows for a home to be constructed from scratch – to the highest possible standard and building codes – in as little as three months. This particular home was transported from the Home Show to an inner-city lot where its foundation was waiting, and sold to a new home buyer.
