The Meridian Advantage
A Meridian project checks all the boxes for comfort, style, luxury, efficiency and sustainability. Our projects incorporate modern and unique architectural features and sustainable building practices with careful attention to detail.
Meridian is an award winning developer known for projects that are of the highest quality, while being cost effective and aesthetically beautiful. Meridian does not simply construct a building for expediency and move on to the next project. It carefully ensures top-quality craftmanship in every step of the construction process. Meridian is committed to building quality homes and commercial spaces that stand the test of time.
Meridian’s portfolio includes Aria condos in Evergreen, the Luxe on Broadway, the King George redevelopment and the award winning Affinity Credit Union Campus renovation and expansion.
As a founder/CEO of award winning developer Meridian, Karl is a builder who has developed a reputation to think out-of-the-box, with no project being too challenging to undertake. With a distinguished background of degrees from the U of S in Commerce and Urban Planning, his thoughtful objective of blending architecture with the urban landscape, while incorporating sustainability, has moved Meridian forward with unique projects that are highly regarded assets in the community. With his knowledge and perspective, Karl has participated in the Saskatchewan Real Estate Forum and has been invited to make presentations to authorities at civic forums. While focused on entrepreneurial pursuits with Meridian, he never forgets his goal of ensuring Meridian always has an eye on the better good, not only in signature projects, but also in undertaking projects such as Meridian’s development of a community skating rink in association with Affinity Credit Union. Karl’s success at Meridian was recognized by his alma mater earlier in his career as the recipient of the U of S Young Alumni Achievement Award. True to the expectations of recipients of that award, Karl has grown Meridian to become a leading developer, expanding operations to British Columbia, and poised for future expansion to markets beyond, with projects sure to capture attention.
