Meet the MAC Team

Blaise McDonald, RRP


Quality is intentional, not accidental

Blaise grew up with MAC Renovations as a consistent part of his life: as his family’s home-based business in MAC’s early days, then working out of the Home Care Centre on Viewfield on weekends and summer holidays. Blaise’s current role is Operations Manager, and he continues to drive the business by delivering incomparable quality and value to homeowners throughout Greater Victoria.

A Red Seal-certified electrician with a Master's Certificate in project management and a bachelor in Construction Management, as well as a Licenced Builder with the Home Owners Protection Office, Blaise has the experience and education needed to help you enjoy the home of your dreams, with a fantastic personality that makes the renovation fun.

Ed McDonald

Owner/Project Manager/Problem Solver

Exceptional people build an extraordinary company

Big MAC laid the foundation for the company back in 1980 as a general contractor, creating relationships and earning a reputation for perfection, one customer at a time. It didn’t take long for MAC Renovations to grow beyond general repairs and contracting, becoming Greater Victoria’s trusted team for interior and exterior renovations. A large portion of our annual business is repeat projects due to our team’s commitment to becoming your “Contractor for life.”

Today Ed plays a vital role in the operations, ensuring each homeowner is excited about the project and informed about the process. 

“Nothing gives me more joy than to hand over the keys on a project we’ve finished, then watching the homeowners experience their new space for the first time.”

Derek Breen

Project Manager/Design Leader

Actions speak louder than words

Derek enjoys meeting new clients and helping them make meaningful, tangible changes to their living spaces. He also likes less glamorous things, like rot repair, exterior envelopes, and structural work, and he approaches these tasks with attention to detail and a sense of humour. He has extensive experience overcoming city permit hurdles and satisfying Board of Variance requirements.

With a degree in architecture and 13 years of project management experience, Derek can handle a wide range of jobs, from small repairs to new home construction. He loves Victoria and is proud to live in beautiful BC.

Azucena Saavedra Dip. ID

Interior Designer/ Project Manager

Functionality and creativity should live in harmony

The best designs happen through smart collaboration between the designer and the homeowner. Azu’s projects start with a conversation to uncover your unique needs, wants, and priorities, and she uses this feedback as a foundation for creative concepts that bring style, flow, and function into your home.

A Diploma in Interior Architectural Design from Pacific Design Academy created Azu’s fundamental knowledge of design, and years of experience with a local design team gave her the ideal balance of functionality, originality, and aesthetics that she uses in the designs for our MAC Renovations clients in Victoria.
