Construction site with crane and drillThe company was founded by brothers Mike and Chris McNally both professional engineers in Ontario, with a long history of undertaking challenging projects in the Toronto area. They were introduced to tunneling by their father Pat McNally whose Tunnel Contracting Business was a leader in the Ontario market during the 1960’s and 70’s. Growing up in the Business developed leadership skills and extensive knowledge leading to successful execution of Contracts undertaken by C&M McNally Engineering Corp.

In 2012, Mike McNally announced his retirement introducing new ownership to the company. Long time dedicated employees; Scott Chapman and John Teahen assumed his ownership role and have become the next generation to bring their unique optimism and creativity to an ever changing industry.

C&M McNally added great insight, innovation and creativity to many projects over the years providing quality, value and cost savings to our clients and while providing safe working environments for our highly skilled workers and management teams. We at C&M McNally are committed to achieving accident free work places and endorse safety beyond industry requirements.
