We Work With You

By working closely with stakeholders, Michanie manages the entire construction project from start to completion. In order to meet deadlines we manage the construction schedule and resources, providing regular project updates and maintaining open communication throughout each phase of a project. The Michanie team strongly believes in communication and problem solving as good and honest communication leads to good and lasting relationships.

We Ensure Quality

Our employees are trained to provide excellent service and expect the same level of service from the subcontractors we work with. Construction sites are monitored by the Project Superintendent and Michanie Management, ensuring a consistent level of quality and service, at all times. Our mission is to provide dependable high quality service and professional workmanship at fair market value.

Our Commitment to Health & Safety

Michanie understands the importance of meeting and exceeding all applicable OHSA & regulatory associations. Our strong commitment to industry health and safety standards is reflected in our day-to-day policies, procedures and inspections. We are committed to providing a safe and healthy work environment for all occupants, visitors, personnel and subcontractors with a goal of zero accidents on all projects. No work is so important that it cannot be done safely. Michanie is committed to establishing and maintaining safe working practices through proper procedures and direction. In any instance that safety is questioned; the proper directives are verbalized, directed, and executed. Safety is taken very seriously on all Michanie sites and our good standing with the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board clearly demonstrates our good work ethics. Safety is everyone’s responsibility. It rests with all levels of management and with each employee.
