British Columbia Division Our Family has been in the steel building industry since the 1960s.

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.
