It’s never easy to start a business in any sector but construction may be harder than most. The competition is fierce and well-established. Proving themselves was the first task at hand and they had the chance with their first project. That first project, a small $35,000 assignment at the CN Transcona yard gates started them off on a journey to establishing a new level of construction integrity in Manitoba.
The team at M.D. Steele landed progressively larger projects and within one year of their launch, they landed the Brodie Centre/John Buhler Research Centre. The successful completion of this project earned M.D. Steele the reputation they were after.
In 2008, M.D. Steele had a change of ownership to Pat Lusty, Peter Withoos and John Elands. As the mantle was passed to three individuals that possessed the commitment, ethics and drive to succeed.
