Trust. Integrity. Commitment. Excellence.

These are the qualities we cherish. And these are the attributes we expect from the suppliers and partners we recommend. Over the past three decades, M Knight Construction has built, restored, or renovated some of the most distinctive homes on the South Island. Our work has been recognized with a Georgie and multiple CARE awards, and featured in Better Homes and Gardens, Western Living, Boulevard, the Times Colonist, Homes and Living, and on many blogs. But what matters most to us isn’t the awards and attention we receive, but the enormous pride both we and our clients get from the result. When you care about the craft of building as much as we do, everything else falls into place.

Mike Knight, owner

The son of a master boat builder and cabinet maker, Mike inherited his father’s passion for fine craftsmanship and attention to detail. A master carpenter himself, Mike has been working with the same 5-man crew for over a decade, giving him consistent quality on every job. He only works with the best subtrades and suppliers whose commitment to excellence matches his own. His focus on teamwork, integrity, and fairness, and his track record of working cooperatively with local officials, helps ensure that custom home projects run smoothly and transparently from planning to completion.

Dave Mann, owner

Dave completed his Red Seal Carpentry designation with the goal of following in his father’s footsteps as a custom home builder/ developer. Dave joined Mike and his team at M. Knight Construction in January 2003, starting as a carpenter progressing into project management and now into a partner/owner ship with Mike. Together, Mike and Dave work closely with clients and sub trades. Dave enjoys every aspect of building; the personal interaction of meeting with clients working closely to create a clear vision of the final end goal and to assist with decision making. With Mike and Dave’s experience together, they collaborate with the design team and sub trades to make the building process smoother. We believe that one of the effective measures of our company is in the stability of our team. Many of our team members and sub trades have worked with us for over twenty years. This dedicated team of highly skilled professionals allows us to give you exceptional customer service, attention to detail and careful quality control producing a finished product that you can be proud of.
