Alberta & Saskatchewan Division
Metal Structure Concepts (MSC) Alberta and Saskatchewan Division is headed by co-owner Corey Ivanitz. Corey’s extensive hands-on field experience—from erecting buildings himself to running larger field crews—serves him as a caring and capable leader. Backed by a devoted office staff, Corey oversees MSC’s projects to ensure there is constant collaboration between designers, managers, preferred work crews, and you. It’s also why we are part of the Metal Alberta Building Association.
With a new, local presence in Alberta, MSC is excited to return to its steel-building prairie roots, where Steve and Corey Ivanitz’s grandfather, Sam, started the steel-building family legacy over sixty years ago. We love the opportunities for steel buildings afforded by the flat prairie land, and our builders love working under the wide expanse of the sky.
From constructing a custom autobody shop in Regina to commercial retail buildings in Fort McMurray to indoor riding arenas, storage shops, and sheds, MSC can handle any job in Alberta and Saskatchewan, and beyond.
Corey is a third-generation steel-building expert who brings over 28 years of experience to the job. With a proven track record of over a hundred commercial and heavy industrial building erections—varying in size—across Western Canada, Corey brings a high level of leadership and field experience to the team. This added experience and knowledge further guarantee the finished product will look, perform, and last exactly as intended with excellent customer service.

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-Canada 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.
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!
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.
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 were 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!
H2P Projects Inc. hired Metal Structure Concepts for the supply and erection of the pre-engineered shop portion of our new Fountain Tire project in Valleyview, AB. MSC was selected based on their proposal, which included pricing and product descriptions. Our experience with MSC was overall a positive one. They worked with us to get the project done in an efficient manner. Throughout the construction process they were easy to get a hold of and we were able to keep things moving forward. MSC worked hard and completed their scope of work ahead of their original schedule - which helped us keep on track with the rest of the project schedule. They did such a great job on this project that we are in the process of hiring them for another one of our projects. I would recommend MSC to anyone looking for a reliable, efficient and professional pre-engineered building contractor.
