With this GSFP grade sort line project MSC faced a challenging task. They constructed a new building while we were simultaneously installing the equipment for the grade sort line. We interrupted the construction flow more than once to satisfy equipment requirements and asked them to work from both ends of the building at the same time to suit equipment deliveries. MSC delivered our finished building on time, the crew was focused and positive to work with, and MSC met our quality expectations despite these challenges. Most of the time everyone was even still smiling! We would definitely consider MSC for any future building needs.
MSC was hired to build an addition to our precast concrete plant, for the purpose of manufacturing concrete pipe and other precast concrete products. MSC was chosen because they showed us early that they would work with us when changes to the design were made. Overall experience with staff was excellent, someone was always available to answer questions when called upon. Erection of the building was timely and professional. Overall experience was good and we would definitely recommend MSC for future projects.
We worked with MSC on a Design-Build project for a Leachate Treatment Facility near Comox, BC. Their team was very cooperative, and they completed their scope of work ahead of schedule which was great for the project. MSC’s site safety program was also excellent. We look forward to working with their team again in the future
MSC supplied & installed a multi-building package for us. MSC worked with us during the design process, and really helped us come up with a building design & layout that maximized the leasable square footage on our property. Our experience working with MSC was very good!! They really care about the work that they do, and the customer service was excellent. Both the steel mini-storage buildings and the pre-engineered steel building were quality buildings, and were installed on time and on budget. We would have no hesitation in recommending MSC to anyone that is looking for a steel building. In fact, we are in the process of starting phase 2 and looking forward to working with the MSC team again.
We first hired MSC to erect a building that another contractor had failed to complete. Not only did MSC save the day, but they put up the steel building with little to no issues. We greatly appreciate their hard work and didn't hesitate to have them work on this project.
We look forward to hiring them again!
MSC did a large addition for us to an existing auto body shop in Kamloops. Being a renovation –this type of build can be extremely difficult. DW Builders, whose owner is the Past president of Canadian Home Builders of BC, is extremely meticulous when it comes to renos and strives for high standards. MSC did a phenomenal job on measuring and planning for this job. They went above and beyond to ensure the site was correctly prepped and stayed in constant communication with the project manager to ensure proper concrete placement which, by the way, was not even in their scope of work. Once the site was ready – their crews arrived promptly and performed professionally, with no hassles. The only thing they left behind was a clean site and a job well done. The project went seamlessly, the client was ecstatic and the end product looks like it had always been planned that way. It was pleasure working with professional, competent crews and DW Builders would not hesitate to recommend MSC to anyone who is planning a project of this nature. We look forward to working with them again in the future.
MSC is an important building partner with StorageBear as we launch our newest self-storage facility in West Kelowna. From the first day of our site planning process, we relied on MSC's expertise and guidance to help us design a building that fit our budget and project plan. They worked around our schedule and hit all project deadlines along the way. The installation crew was easy to work with and their quality of workmanship was top tier. The management team was competent and professional, even when we threw a few change order curve balls at them! StorageBear will continue using MSC for future buildings as we phase our facility over the next couple years.
Dynamic Seeds of Fairview, Alberta purchased the building from MSC in 2015. The project was 50 ft long x 55 ft wide x 65 ft high at the peak. MSC sent staff to ensure the foundation met specifications before building, and to offer their services. The pricing was very competitive and there was no surprises at the end of the build. The project was completed efficiently and on time, as per the contract. The staff was very friendly and easy to work with, and at no time did we have trouble contacting Steve with any questions and/or concerns. He was always ready to answer our questions. One important thing to note, when the job was completed, the yard site was left clean and neat – such a welcomed surprise! Should we be planning any new builds in the future, we will be sure to contact Steve at MSC!
I have been planning this project for 10 years. Of all the people I spoke with about the project, Steve was the most helpful. Other builders tried to change my design but Steve came through for me. He was a great help throughout the whole process and is definitely knowledgeable about his stuff. The building was delivered when I requested and I was impressed by their crew, safe and efficient who definitely take pride in their work. All in all, I got everything I wanted. This build not only met but exceeded my expectations and I would definitely recommend MSC to anyone looking for a pre-engineered steel building.
This was the first project we hired MSC for, we have since completed three projects with them! One project was the erecting of a building that another contractor had failed to complete. Not only did MSC save the day, they put up the building with little to no issues. We greatly appreciate their hard work and we look forward to hiring them again.
We have worked with Steve Ivanitz and the MSC Team on a number of projects dating back to 2004 and as current as 2015. From a private ice hockey arena to Petro Can C-store/gas bar. Through the many projects that Steve and his team have completed, it has enabled them to bring an expertise in development and design to help their clients meet and exceed their expectations. MSC has always fulfilled their part in meeting both timeline/schedules and costs on the materials that they have supplied to our projects, whether that be a local or remote site. We at Rempel Builders would recommend MSC to anyone considering a Metal Structure - Big or small.
Country RV contracted MSC to design, supply and erect our flagship building back in 2008. The custom design included a showroom, parts department, mezzanine, offices and six service bays and was especially challenging as it involved a six acre site consisting of riparian work along a fish stream, a deceleration lane and a turn lane off Hwy 97. MSC did a fantastic job and no one would ever guess this is a pre-engineered steel building. If we ever expand, MSC will be the first call I make.
I have been involved in the purchase of several buildings from MSC. The buildings were cost effective and of high quality. The installation went well but of course had more challenges due to the size of the project and a tight time line. MSC pulled together and completed the Babine Sawmill rebuild to the customers’ satisfaction. In dealing with MSC on these projects, I found them to be very straight forward, helpful and honest. I would not hesitate to have MSC provide buildings for future projects that I am responsible for.
I originally contracted MSC to build a mini-storage in a remote part of BC. The project came together without any issues, and they kept me informed every step of the way. They gave me confidence with their constant communication and project updates as I was off site throughout the build. The quality of the construction was great, and I have had no problems in the 5 years since. I was also surprised by their follow up after the project was finished to make sure that I was satisfied. I have used them a few times now to build multiple mini-storage buildings and have always been very happy with the end result.
During our building project it was obvious that MSC management was extremely conscientious regarding the quality of workmanship, safety of their employees and adherence to the construction schedule. They worked closely with us to minimize cost overruns. We are very proud of our newest facility and the quality of the building makes a lasting first impression to all. Throughout the course of construction, many details were subjected to the usual litany of last minute changes. The patience, professionalism, speed and skill with which these items were handled was nothing short of amazing.
When we needed some storage for our grain and equipment a friend recommended MSC to me and I’m glad he did. Steve made the ordering process easy and guided me through it step-by-step. Since we started the planning late in the season, we were worried we wouldn’t be able to complete on schedule, as it was well into December when the building arrived - but the MSC crew was great and the actual raising of the building went amazingly smooth. We are really pleased with the results. I would definitely recommend MSC to anyone looking for any specialty storage or equipment facilities.
The TNRD purchased a total of seven large metal buildings from MSC in 2012 and 2013. MSC provided the design, supply and install of these seven steel buildings over 4 different sites. We were very satisfied with the final products and their service. Steve was great to work with and always very professional and pleasant in our dealings. I would recommend Steve and MSC for anyone considering a new metal building.
I would like to take the time to thank Metal Structure Concepts (MSC) for all of the dedicated time and effort you and your crew spent designing and erecting the Montizambert Water Treatment Plant for us in North Vancouver. Your level of professionalism throughout the tendering and design stages of this project never ceased to impress us. Mr. Ivanitz stood behind his work and I applaud his integrity and that of his company. We felt an extraordinary level of trust with MSC and I'm certain all future clients will benefit as we did and I encourage anyone looking for pre-engineered building pricing, design and/or erection services to select MSC as your contracting resource.
We hired MSC after consulting with past customers and hearing how efficient and easy to work with they are…we were also impressed with their adherence to timelines and prices. So, we contacted MSC to help with the construction of two buildings. Our first project was a warehouse/sales building, and the second project was to erect our sausage kitchen and packaging facility expansion. To no surprise, both projects were managed well and came together even better than expected (despite the weather in Northern BC). The management and staff were very helpful throughout both projects – both in the planning and construction phases. A big thing that stood out to us was their adaptability to our design/project requirements and requests. Without a doubt, we would most definitely use and recommend MSC.
In 2011 NCC Development Limited issued an RFP for the design build of a 5 bay, 6000 sq' storage facility in Iqaluit NU. The RFP was for a supply and installation. Olympia Steel was the chosen supplier and they highly recommended Steve and his MSC crew. Within a week the deal was done for the erection contract. The building went very well and I was impressed with the production and quality of their work. MSC and their crew also stepped up to the plate to help with a few lingering issues we had, it was our first building like this and there were a few growing pains to be sorted out. MSC made the changes in a timely manner and at no cost to us. I appreciated how they honoured their work in such a remote location that is 3 time zones away from their home base. The relationship was then established and we utilized their services for two more warehouses at 9000 sq' each and also utilized their services for the completion of a special project in Iqaluit, a media studio. MSC is and will be our one and only erection team for steel in the north. When our next project comes up we will also look at a supply and install. The level of professionalism and care showed by the team makes the decision easy for me to choose to work with them again and to utilize more services that they offer.
I purchased a building from MSC in 2013. We choose MSC after checking references, touring MSC buildings and personally interviewing Steve Ivanitz. MSC’s crews arrived on schedule and did an outstanding job. Their foreman was knowledgeable and always ready to answer questions. The job was finished on time, on budget and the entire job site was left clean and ready for the next stage of our project. Safety was always the highest priority on site. Throughout the entire project, Steve was outstanding to work with. His extensive knowledge of pre-engineered buildings combined with his strong interpersonal relationship skills guided us through our project from start to finish with very few issues. Throughout the project, Steve was always a phone call or email away and always had our projects best interest in mind especially when it came to the project budget. It is hard to find a contractor you can trust with your wallet. A huge thank you to Steve and his team for a job extremely well done!
In January 2014, Steve Ivanitz (Project Manager) completed the Powell River Project in a 3 month span. This complex project required detailed coordination of trades and schedule flexibility to maintain the ongoing operations of the facility. The team members of MSC exhibited professionalism in their field construction and management endeavors, and completed all of the technical challenges to the stringent VCH standards. In conclusion, these team members of MSC helped to deliver on what was contracted and completed the process on time and on budget. I would not hesitate in recommending MSC for future construction services.
