British Columbia Division
Since its inception in 2002, Metal Structure Concepts (MSC) has become renowned for its unequaled level of value-added service in the pre-engineered steel building industry across Western Canada and beyond.
MSC’s British Columbia Division is headed by co-owner and founder Steve Ivanitz. Backed by a devoted office staff, Steve 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 and obtained our Dynamic Seal from the Better Business Bureau (BBB) in 2018 (currently ranking A+).
Our talented team of in-house designers creates innovative plans to suit any industry or building application. They work closely with our very own highly trained field workers who carry out the installation to rigorous standards. Together we guarantee a finished product that looks, performs, and lasts exactly as intended.
Where many competing companies simply sell pre-engineered steel building kits, MSC offers the complete package. With a proven track record and hundreds of buildings across Western Canada, we’re with you every step of the way, from design to installation. That level of service, combined with our quality craftsmanship, is what sets us apart, and it’s what our clients have come to expect.
From constructing a warehousing complex in Nunavut to the 144-foot clear span facility for Kicking Horse Coffee in Invermere to the numerous self-storage compounds across BC, MSC can handle any job in British Columbia and beyond.
Steve is a third generation steel building expert who brings over 22 years experience to the job. With a proven track record of hundreds of buildings across Western Canada and a loyal experienced staff, Steve has the experience and the resources to guarantee a finished product that looks, performs and lasts exactly as intended.

"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. 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."
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.
We hired MSC for the new warehouse on our Shuttleworth Creek Vineyard property. We chose MSC as they had built our production facility at our home vineyard about 15 years ago and had had a good experience then. Steve and his team at MSC have all been great to deal with throughout the process, even when we faced major delays (from outside factors unrelated to MSC). Once construction was able to finally go ahead, the team got the building up in what seemed like record time, despite un-seasonally cold weather. Everything was handled very professionally, and we loved getting the photo updates from Marty with drone footage giving the bird's-eye view of the project. MSC certainly met all of our expectations and I would recommend them to anybody needing steel construction for their project.
I’ve been asked to describe my experience with Metal Structure Concepts on my recent shop build. It’s certainly had its ups and downs. More than anything it’s been an education in the 2018 BC building code. I highly recommend taking their advice and hiring a consultant for code review ahead of time. I personally had no idea what I didn’t know. With the scale of my new shop, going from 3 service bays to 6 and the large span required we opted for a metal building this time. The building itself went up quite quickly once permits were in hand and the quality is good. Only minor adjustments required here and there with braces and fitting door openings. I am very impressed with the overall look and structure. The erector crews were good guys and we enjoyed their company, as we did with the planning and management at MSC. I’m very happy to see this shop finally coming together and look forward to putting it to work in coming months.
Imperial Limestone hired MSC Steel to help design, fabricate and install a new heavy equipment repair shop. The project ran smoothly from start to finish and MSC was knowledgeable, professional and understood our needs for a tight budget. The attention to detail and walking us through every stop was much appreciated and helped for a seamless delivery and installation of exactly the building we wanted. The project rolled out ahead of schedule and on budget and MSC Steel exceeded our expectations. We would (and have!) recommend them to anyone looking to build.
