  • Welcome to MC Construction. Many people often ask me what MC stands for. It stands for Mount Christie. I recall seeing this mountain for the first time as a very young child on a family vacation in the Canadian rockies. Jasper National Park to be specific. What makes this mountain so unique is that it shares the same name as our family’s last name. It was named after William Joseph Christie in 1859. This mountain is tens of thousands of years old and has remained intact and pretty much unchanged since it was formed. It has stood the test of time! Thus my inspiration for my company name was born – “MC Construction”. Like the mountain itself, I expect all of our work to pass the test of time!

RYAN – THE CREATOR BEHIND MC CONSTRUCTION

My philosophy on running my own business?

Setting the bar high and rising above it. Any job worth doing, is worth doing well. I learned this from my father at a very early age. Always do everything to the best of your ability. I want to stand out, be better, and yet different than everyone else. Being the norm is not in my vocabulary. Instead, I want to be the new standard by delivering great quality products and services at great prices. Thus allowing people to remember me, my company, and the amazing experience. I have a tremendous passion for what I do. I am a visionary, the kind of person that likes to think outside of the box, and create unique solutions to complex problems.

Keys to success in my business?

Taking the time to truly get to know my clients, fully identify and understand their needs, ultimately helping them realize their dreams. Creating a continual supply of very satisfied clients by delivering a great final product on budget and on time.

My style for my home is…

Ultra modern with a clean open format layout.

Three things in my place I love…

Home theatre, large vaulted high ceilings, large garage (which I can work on my car restoration)

Story behind the customized work I’ve done in my home…

I added an addition onto my home, and created one large open format great room with amazing vaulted ceilings, custom kitchen with 12 foot island, home theatre and living room all in one. Then I added double french doors which led out onto a new custom deck and hot tub. Furthermore I added 20 tons of rock and boulders to the back of my home to create a river system with two massive waterfalls at each end.

3 tools I can’t live without…

iPhone – my office away from my office Impact driver – love the capability and driving power Mini cordless skill saw – cordless convenience

What do I do when I don’t work…

I love spending time with my daughter and my loved ones. I love surrounding myself in nature doing activities such as hiking, biking, roller blading, camping, and restoring my first car.

Favourite home activity…

Spending time with my loved ones, cleaning, watching movies, working out and working on my car restoration.

Favourite project that I’ve worked on…

Whole house renovation which took 12 months to complete almost entirely by myself. The home was completely renovated inside and out. Everything was changed, improved and redesigned. Nothing of the past original home was left untouched. I enjoyed this project so much because it was a self challenge to see if I could do it. It allowed all my skills, passion and vision to culminate together and create a true masterpiece.

Currently listening to at work…

Country, house music, classic rock.

What’s your dream home like if money wasn’t a factor…

A home built on the beach with unobstructed soaring glass exterior walls. It would actually be constructed to have the ocean water flow freely in and around the entire home. It would have it’s own boat garage at the rear of the home to safely park the watercraft in. Boats could be driven right into the garage off the ocean itself. It would have it’s own private beach front and car parking would be on level two. A helipad would be located on the roof, and the ocean would also be allowed to flow freely into the centre of the home. This would create a magical sound and viewing area within the home. Basically bringing the outdoors indoors!

Splurge on….

My daughter, my loved ones, my car restoration, buying tools

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

A business that will take care of me well beyond retirement. Happily married, having more children, and reaching a complete genuine inner peace.

What is your personal motto?

Any job worth doing is worth doing well. A happy customer is your greatest asset. Find your passion in life, realize it and follow it wherever it takes you.
