My experiences working with Russ have left me extremely confident in his abilities to deliver as promised. Not only as a high quality builder but also as a very successful project manager. He fully immerses himself in his projects and remains very dedicated to seeing them through to completion. I’ve used Russ’s services for nearly 10 years on a variety of builds ranging from a smaller scale carriage house, a cabin at our family’s recreational property, to larger scale mixed use residential/commercial builds. Russ has been hard-working, organized, and delivered on budgets and timelines consistently. I would highly recommend his services.
We consider ourselves fortunate to have been referred to Russ McMann’s Group for the construction of our retirement residence. He was unfailingly accessible, helpful and respectful in assisting us in the many decisions required throughout the process. We benefitted from his ideas on cost savings without compromising quality. Our house was completed on time and on budget. Throughout , Russ earned our trust and confidence.
In 2014 my wife and I decided to get our dream home built on Gabriola Island.
We already had bought a beautiful lot to build on, with sweeping views across the ‘Salish Sea’ and the Coastal Mountains. With some help we got our layouts & building plans drawn up, had a good idea about materials and style of house, and budget of course. Excavating and site prep was also already done. All we had to do was find a reliable, trustworthy and experienced builder who would make our dream come true. We received proposals from four different construction companies, but finally decided to trust Russ McMann (Principal of McMann Homes) from Nanaimo with the work. Russ and his crew started in late March of 2014 with the foundation, and on August 7th 2018 we received our Occupancy Permit. That was so amazing, how fast this whole building process went, without any interruptions and in absolute high quality craftsmanship. In addition, during the building process I had to travel to Europe a few times, and was away for weeks, thus couldn’t even keep an eye on things myself, but had to trust Russ and his professional crew completely. We had no architect involved, no one else to supervise the job, and we were never disappointed by McMann Homes. Russ delivered on time and within budget. That was one of our best decisions to trust Russ to build our dream home and can highly recommend his company, crew and himself. In case we ever build again, Russ is our first choice.
I’ve had the pleasure of representing McMann Homes numerous times over the past decade marketing both new construction and resale homes they’ve built and have always been impressed by their attention to detail and quality of craftsmanship. I routinely recommend McMann Homes to clients looking for new construction or renovation help and every time my clients’ expectations are exceeded. On a personal note, Russ is a relentless worker: he always picks up the phone, does what he says he’s going to do and frankly, gets things done on time and on budget.
