About Us

Businesses often lose sight of the most important thing: the customer. It is easy to get lost in the styling, technical details, and timelines of a project. However, the most important thing is the project “fits” the client.
Mavriq Construction is a general contractor specializing in home renovations and construction in Thunder Bay and surrounding areas. Our proven design process has helped our clients turn their vision into concrete designs. A customer's habits, aesthetic tastes and functional requirements help drive the technical design and ensure the customer ends up with a product that they will love for years to come. Our employees have the knowledge, experience and ethic that keeps our customers coming back.

Who We Are

After nearly 20 years in Project Management at a national company, the founder had watched it grow, lose focus, and ultimately treat employees as cogs in the wheel. Mavriq Construction was born of the idea that a company could be more successful by putting employees and clients first.

Many companies “talk the talk” but fail to deliver as they focus on the wrong things. Construction companies seem prone to start with the technical and not the functional. We begin with the client’s usage first and design from there.

What We Do

Although we specialize in renovations with an emphasis on adding unique features, we have the knowledge and experience for just about any type of residential or commercial construction.
  • Kitchen, Bathroom and Basement Renovations
  • New homes and additions
  • Exterior Finishing and Metal roofs
  • Windows and doors including metal capping
  • Decks, patios, gazebos, pergolas, etc.
  • Unique, custom, and artistic construction projects

Our Team

We know our success is aligned with the people we employ. We retain employees that show a passion for their craft and attention to detail. We believe in creating an environment that allows them to thrive and showcase their talents.
We have carefully selected our team of managers, designers, craftsmen, and labourers. Their drive translates into designs that fulfill our customer's needs and the quality work for which we are known. We developed Mavriq's corporate culture to help build strong teams of people who can enjoy a career doing what they love to do best.

GEOFF VAN BRUNT

President
Geoff's career has spanned varied industries giving him a unique perspective and wide array of skills. Before starting Mavriq, he built an entire division at a national corporation over 18 years as part of the senior management team. He led many projects and had a reputation for top-quality work while meeting budgets and timelines.

His career in the trades began in the '80s. Even while he worked in other industries, he took on construction projects for friends and family and continued to build his skill set. Mavriq is the result of his decision to switch full time to doing something he loves.

Todd Flontek

Project Lead
Todd has been in the Building Industry for 35 years and has a wide array of knowledge across various sub-trades. He has lead one of the largest scaffolding companies in Northwestern Ontario, been the senior manager of a window manufacturing firm in Alberta, and Project Lead for a major company in the oil fields in charge of over 100 staff. He has worked in the industrial, institutional, commercial and residential sectors.

In 2002 Todd became one of only 29 Gold Seal Tradesmen in North America after passing his Red Seal exams in the top percentile.

Taz

Shop Dog
What can we say? Taz supervises all food cleaning aspects of the operation. His desire to leave floors spotless of any food particles far surpassed any labourers we have hired to date. This drive is so powerful we have overlooked his other short cummings such as his inability to follow instruction, lack of focus (other than food), and the fact that he sleeps rather than completing any work we assign him.

He IS family, so we will just keep him around the office and out of sight from customers - unless they need some food to disappear.
