Every business has a story to tell… here is ours!

Steven Buhagiar, owner and President of MeadowBrook, was raised to recognize opportunity and pursue it with integrity and passion. His parents immigrated to Canada from Malta with no formal education and very little money, speaking not a word of English, determined to create a better life for their three sons.

Steven got his start in the HVAC business working alongside his brother and eventually launched Avenue Aire in 1996 to service commercial and industrial customers. Just one year later when the industry required that ventilation systems be ISO9000 certified, he took the initiative, expanded his company’s skill set and made the transition easy for his customers.

The next turning point? It came in 1998 when they successfully fixed a 5-year problem that the LCBO had with their air conditioning system. So impressed with their service, the LCBO asked if Steven could handle their electrical and plumbing work as well. That was when the vision of a one-stop solution was born.

Over the next decade Steven expanded the company to be a full-service General Contractor and officially re-branded as MeadowBrook Construction Inc. Primarily serving businesses of all sizes throughout the Greater Toronto Area, the company has also completed major projects across Canada ranging from an office tower renovation downtown Montreal, where they installed one of the first energy-efficient heating systems, to the redevelopment of commercial/industrial space in Calgary.

Proud of his humble beginnings, Steven transformed MeadowBrook into what it is today through old-fashioned hard work and a commitment to long-term relationships. Looking to the future, Steven and his team will continue to exceed expectations and gain loyal customers by staying at the forefront of technology and providing comprehensive, cost effective solutions.
