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.
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.
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.
Time has a way of showing the value of quality
The lines of communication between the design team and the tradespeople have to be open and effective to realize the vision you have for your home. Jason works in tandem with the design team, analyzing the plans and working with his crew to address and overcome the unique challenges that sometimes happen when you start opening walls.
A Red Seal-certified electrician with twenty years of construction experience with residential renovations and remodels, Jason has developed the wisdom, insight, and perspective needed to turn concept sketches into 3D reality, ensuring each MAC Renovation project goes smoothly so you can enjoy your space today and tomorrow.
Making your Pinterest board a reality
Experience, education, and exceptional style inspire the creative vision that Alexis brings to each project. Proud mama of two young boys, Alexis is a genius at being an effective intermediary between sometimes-opposing bodies, facilitating brilliant results that make our clients smile every time they come home.
Alexis’ Diploma in Interior Architectural Design from Pacific Design Academy and BA in Theatre (set/costume design) drive her academic understanding of intelligent composition, and ten years’ experience in the Interior Design industry provide the practical knowledge necessary to turn good ideas into incredible executions. You’ll love Alexis’ energy, enthusiasm, and efficiency throughout your renovation.
