Charles Lemieux, originally from Ottawa Ontario, is a young entrepreneur who has founded Real Estate Linx, Verawood Inc, Blocks Modular Corp and now Turrum Construction Corp.
Charles started Turrum Construction, at the age of 21 in the Bow Valley. It is a contracting business, that has grown from small residential repaints to full services contracting business catering mostly to large commercial clients.
While Charles was busy with Turrum, he discovered his passion for real estate and bought his first revenue property at the age of 22. His eagerness to learn, grow and push through obstacles has enabled him to accomplish great things and create a healthy multi-million-dollar real estate portfolio with multiple properties in Canada and the US.
While, residential real estate can be rewarding and profitable, Charles had his eye on a much bigger picture. Multi-family buildings and commercial real estate. This is where Charles realized the gap in our market between affordability and a healthy return on investment. Thus he created Blocks Container Structures. Blocks converts new or used iso shipping containers into living spaces. However, Charles vision didn't stop there; these iso shipping containers are now being transformed into site offices, remote/relief housing, retail stores, cottages and customizable units for the multiple industries.
Charles is an innovative entrepreneur whose ability to stick to it and get the job done has proven very successful for him and those he works with. He is currently taking container housing to the next level.
