McKnight Charron Limited Architects (MCL Architects) has been a leading, licensed firm in the Barrie region since 1988 and has been devoted to offering full architectural services tailored to specific customer needs. Their designs are inspired by metropolitan cityscapes and emphasize beauty, versatility, and usefulness. They are enthusiastic about what they do and understand that what counts most is their clients’ goals.
MCL Architects always provides a strong team approach, with both principals actively involved: Michael McKnight, who has 40 years of expertise, and Stephen Charron, who has 38 years of experience. With a mix of community and institutional structures, their combined capabilities maintain a strong presence throughout Southern and Central Ontario.
Their geographical position and inclination to serve smaller areas have been life goals. Small town and rural project options have allowed their business to remain “service” oriented, with a partner committed to each project. Their clients value their hands-on approach and partner involvement.
When MCL Architects take on a project, they put all of their creative and professional abilities into it. Their staff understands project needs and functional relationships, and they try to deliver an original and dynamic expression of space that goes beyond quantitative program compliance. Its mission is to provide projects that consider all internal and external pressures, building techniques, cost, commercial viability, and end-user experience.
