We’re proud of the men and women on our team because they’re always quick to lend a hand, they consistently deliver their best, and they take the time to do it right because they respect our homeowners and want them to be proud of the renovations we do in Victoria.

As we celebrate our 40th year of home renovation in Victoria, we thought we’d share one of the secrets to our longevity and successcarefully choosing the right professionals to work with.  

As businesses develop and grow, they often get to a point where they have too much work and not enough people, oan influx of projects outside of their core strengths. These companies then have to decide between hiring more staff or subcontracting other crews to finish the job. In a profit-driven world, it can be tempting to choose the cheapest labour, tack on a premium, and then hope the contractors deliver the quality the company is known for. Unfortunately, this rarely works well. Cheap labour is unreliable and usually involves shortcuts in training or materials, and often both.  

At MAC, we hire people based on their talent and professionalism, as well as their focus on customer satisfaction. Whether it’s a new person joining our administrative team or a new crew providing the construction services we need to complete a renovation, we choose the best so we can continue to deliver the best to our clients throughout Greater Victoria. At first glance, it might look like it’s more expensive, but we’ve found that the right people doing the right job means it gets done right the first time, saving our clients time, money, and frustration throughout the project.  

Follow the MAC Renovations Facebook page to see who we’ve recognized through our #TeamworkTuesday posts – where we share a little love for the talented local businesses we have the privilege of working with. 

Future electrician for the Elevated Electric team?

Every year, we host a summer BBQ to thank our contractors and in-house team members, and their families, for the hard work and dedication they bring to every project. The BBQ is always a ton of fun, and this year was no different. We saw some new faces (some were new contractors, others were brand-new babies!) and old friends. A gaggle of dogs kept the energy up, and we couldn’t have picked better weather – the heat was just right thanks to the slight breeze, even if it meant a bit of searching for wayward frisbees.

Big thanks to Chef John and his team at Moonlight Catering for preparing a tasty meal served by friendly and attentive staff – it’s always a pleasure to work with professionals who clearly enjoy their craft. “One of the things we really love about having the BBQ catered,” said Ed McDonald, “is that it lets us get away from the grill and visit with everyone. Moonlight makes this event delicious and fun.”

Cornhole!

You may have noticed the fancy, regulation-sized cornhole (aka: bean bag toss) boards that were set up for everyone. Ed worked with the MAC carpentry team to build the boards to the American Cornhole Association’s standards, then he varnished them up, picked up some regulation-weight beanbags, and set the boards up at the legal distance. From the way everyone was playing, we might have some serious contenders for a cornhole tournament – maybe next year!

Thank you again to all of the professionals – and their spouses – for helping us make amazing homes for families throughout Victoria. We couldn’t do this without you.

Fun for everyone
