Keystone Ridge’s President, Samuel Lapidus, started the company with the vision of bringing a new perspective to the home building industry in the Greater Toronto Area. His background included working in development and strategy for one of Canada’s largest premier property management, development advisory firms. An MBA degree in commercial and retail development with a focus on sustainable building practices and technology brings graduate education and 21st century best practices together to build and renovate for today’s world.
Samuel has been trained in the Ontario Building Code. He has successfully passed the two exams offered by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing, Building and Development Branch qualifying him as expert in home and small building construction and renovation.
Samuel is currently the Chairperson of the Renovator and Custom Builder's Council at the Building Industry and Land Development Association and sits on the association's board of directors. He also chairs the Programming subcommittee and volunteers in a number of other ways. In June of 2015, he was appointed as the only renovator / custom home builder in the province of Ontario to sit on to the Ministry of Labor’s Construction Health and Safety Advisory Group to assist government in the development and implementation of a Construction Health and Safety Action Plan.
Keystone Ridge Developments Ltd. was awarded the “Best Condominium Suite Renovation” in the “Renovation and Custom Home Awards” with the Building Industry and Land Development Association. Samuel was a finalist as the industry’s Young Builder of the Year in 2016.
My husband and I were given Sam's contact information and are glad we called him. We previously had gone through interviewing a number of contractors but just didn't feel the fit or comfortable having them work in our home. Sam was professionally, knowledgeable and really understood that our renovation was going to be a team event. My husband and I knew that renovating a condo would have some special challenges but we had no clue heading into the process how much there was to know and deal with. This is where Sam and his trades made difference. In the end the experience was really amazing. Sam gave us a private website were we could read a daily work journal, see photographs, chat with the team, and track a project calendar. This amount of information made us feel comfortable with progress and that our budget was being met. If you’re planning on a renovation and especially one in a condo, we recommend Sam and Keystone Ridge Developments.
