On Saturday, April 14th, Dream Ridge Homes attended our first BILD Calgary Chapter Annual Awards Gala. And on Saturday, Dream Ridge Homes officially became an award-winning builder – twice over – taking both of the Best New Home categories that we were nominated for!

If that wasn’t thrilling enough, a third honour was received amongst the Grand Awards of the evening, naming us Runner-Up Builder of Merit for small volume builder of the year.

We joined BILD Calgary Region as an inaugural member just last year, so to say that we’re proud of our debut result amongst such accomplished peers is a gross understatement.

The support of our family, friends and colleagues is invaluable, keeping us focused, hungry and humble, always. It feels fantastic to have your blood and sweat recognized at this level.

With wider smiles and prouder hearts, your congratulatory messages have been touching and appreciated. We share these awards with you!
