Engineering to Building
Our founder Sam Abdelmalak wasn’t always a builder. He found his life’s passion by chance. After working as an engineer for almost 30 years, he built a new home for his young family. It was, in his own words, ‘a masterpiece’. Then, during the recession in the 90s, Sam lost his job and couldn’t find work. So he decided to sell his much loved family home to finance a new business in home construction.
His training as an engineer, coupled with an obsession for detail, helped Sam set a new standard for construction quality.As demand for Sam’s houses grew, his eldest son Simon joined the business, to be followed in later years by Joshua and Daniel.
All three sons continued the family passion for property throughout University, gaining degrees and advanced skills in Planning, Design, Property, Construction, Real Estate and Information Systems.
They now run Samma, supported by a large executive team comprising highly experienced specialists in Planning, Land Acquisition, Design, Construction, Sales, Finance, Law and Corporate Governance.
