What Our Clients Say

Black & McDonald’s record of achievement and performance within our facilities is superior and demonstrates their vast knowledge of working within the framework of today’s hospitals. The team has provided a multitude of services, both large and small, to Scarborough Health Network, including mechanical and electrical redevelopment and construction projects. We have no hesitation in recommending Black & McDonald’s services to other parties.

Tyler Crocker, Director, Plant and Facilities Operations, Scarborough Health Network

The HVAC contract transition by Black & McDonald at Toronto Pearson Airport was a major endeavour. The extremely tight timeline of seven weeks for the transition took place over the Christmas holidays, and there was a considerable level of coordination required from hiring employees and obtaining vehicles and equipment to be ready for the start date of the contract. The transition phase of the contract was seamless and I can’t thank Black & McDonald enough for their efforts in ensuring there was no disruption to our customers.

Mike Risenborough, Director, Facilities Maintenance, GTAA

We needed someone to take over our Central Utilities Plant operations and maintenance to support 1.3 million sq. ft. of manufacturing and support space on an urgent basis. Black & McDonald was able to come in and put together a transition plan quickly and seamlessly take over from the previous team.

Mahendran Gnanapragasm, Manager, Global Real Estate Facilities, Celestica

Black & McDonald’s crew’s professionalism went above and beyond expectations and reflected the understanding of what it means to be a nuclear professional, similar to our regular staff.

Glen Smurthwaite, Cost & Schedule Analyst, Ontario Power Generation

Special thanks to Black & McDonald. A lot of the work was picked up by your team on a very short notice. There are many good examples of what was done from successful welding and containment exhaust ducting, all the way to pressure test work. Excellent team work and responsiveness.

Waleed Ishaque, Ontario Power Generation

Just passing along what a great job your technician Tim did in replacing an old Alvey Micrologix PLC with a new CompactLogix today. The work is clean and neat, and all of Tim’s wiring checked out correctly the first time. Thank you Tim!

Corey Stark, President, Control System Engineering Inc.

After Hurricane Irma we were without power. Florida Power & Light restored power to the north end of the beach, with the exception of two buildings, one of which I live in. A week before FPL told us power would be restored, a friendly Black & McDonald crew showed up. After about three hours of labor, they got our building up and running with power. They were absolutely amazing.

Carol Figura, Storm Restoration Resident, Fort Meyers, Florida

I wanted to send you a note to let you know that your technician, Toby, went above and beyond during his visit on Monday. He replaced all the light bulbs that needed attention in our warehouse and I almost feel like I am getting a suntan when I walk in. Toby is professional, courteous and knows his stuff. We appreciate him and his work!

Barb Ziegler, Office Manager / Executive Assistant, NCTC

I wanted to thank your organization and crews that took time to come to Florida to help people they had never met before and restore their electric power. We were truly blessed, my family is safe and my house suffered minimal long-lasting damage thanks to Black & McDonald. To all of you in Kansas City have a blessed day!

Cheryl Cornelius, Storm Restoration Resident, Fort Meyers, Florida

I wanted to take a minute to thank you and your crew for the outstanding work that was performed at Med James. Your crew followed the procedure to the letter and things went extremely smoothly. The guys did a great job cleaning up after the project and the client was very pleased with the updated panel legends. I look forward to working with you again in the near future.

Gregory Gibson, CFM Operations Manager, MC Realty Group / YRC Freight
