What our clients have to say...

"Kiwanis Homes contracted with MB in January 2021 to construct a new, eight-storey, sixty-unit affordable housing apartment building located at 6 Acorn Street in Hamilton, Ontario. This is a high-performance building which will house families and persons living with developmental disabilities. The building was completed in September 2022 and is currently in the process of rent-up. The entire project was completed during a time of global pandemic caused by the COVID-19 virus. The consequent staffing and supply chain challenges arising from the pandemic added an unforeseen layer of complexity to this project. Despite these challenges, the project was completed within the designated timeframes and on budget. During this project, we found the quality of MB’s work to be exceptional and the actions and demeanour of their team to be professional. We feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with their team and have no hesitation in recommending their services."
