Jamie McClelland and Tabias McIlvenna met while swinging hammers on the 26th story of a high-rise construction project in 2006 and immediately hit it off, each respecting the other's incredible work ethic. While it wasn't long before they went separate ways to bigger and better things, they continued to stay in contact through the years, each benefiting from the others varied knowledge and expertise in the construction management, supervision and project delivery fields. Eventually, they concluded that together, they could utilize these skills more effectively as a team than as individuals. The birth of BritCan Management soon followed.
