In 2012 Iona College contracted Mackersey Construction Ltd to build a Performing Arts Centre and an Information Resource Centre for the school. These Architecturally stunning, yet complex buildings set amongst iconic Spanish Mission buildings demanded a build quality of the highest standard and MCL delivered on every front. From the polished concrete floors to the finished joinery, MCL have produced world class buildings that are robust enough to withstand school life, yet elegant, refined and able to pass critical inspection.

A part of the brief was to produce buildings that we would all be proud of. Iona College sincerely thanks John Bower, David Mackersey and their team for not only achieving that brief, but for the professionalism and integrity that they displayed during the entire process. We wish the Company well and would have no hesitation in recommending them to prospective clients.
