About

The BILD Calgary Region Awards (formerly SAM Awards) celebrate the most creative and professional work in the Calgary home building industry. The Sales and Marketing (SAM) Awards were created by the Calgary Home Builders Association 31 years ago and were initiated to recognize quality products and accomplishments among builders.

Those first awards, presented as part of the association’s 1986 President's Ball, recognized products entered in the annual "Parade of Homes". As interest in the awards grew, the program was expanded to include more and more aspects of the home building industry in and around Calgary. Over the years, the name of the awards was changed to "Awards of Excellence", and separated from the President's Ball to become a stand-alone event dedicated to celebrating the best of the best.

Through three decades and having reverted to the SAM Awards, the competition experienced several years of dynamic growth and change, as did the association that founded them. In 2016, with the amalgamation of the Canadian Home Builders’ Association – Calgary Region and the Urban Development Institute Calgary, BILD (Building Industry Land Development) Calgary Region was born. The name of the awards again changed to be more identifiable with the association and the industry it served. The BILD Calgary Region Awards continue to incorporate year round competition, plus an evening of celebration involving over 1,600 members, their employees, and families.

With better than 60 awards at stake, the BILD Calgary Region Awards are one of the most comprehensive and prestigious of all home building industry awards programs across Canada. Whether a finalist or winner, the BILD Calgary Region Awards brand carries recognition as a mark of excellence in the eyes of the industry and public, thus offering a competitive edge worth achieving.

The BILD Calgary Region Awards foster vigorous competition among association members, which promotes on-going innovation in technical/design, service, sales and marketing; continually raising the bar to the benefit of the industry, consumers and the communities we build and serve.
