About D.J. McGauley and Associates

D. J. McGauley and Associates was founded by Daniel J. McGauley in 1992. Daniel started the business to service the needs of small to mid-sized corporations across the Greater Toronto Area (G.T.A.) that did not have dedicated staff. His vision was to take the stress out of renovations and relocations, while controlling costs for customers.

With the passing of Daniel in 2006, his son Mike took over the family business. Mike remains the Principal today, and continues in his Father’s footsteps, growing D.J. McGauley and Associates one satisfied customer at a time.

Based in Toronto, and serving the GTA, with Design, Space Planning, Renovation, Relocation and Facilities Management Services, this team of dedicated professionals provides the same excellent, personalized service, whether the office relocation is down the street, or across the G.T.A..

D.J. McGauley and Associates continues to focus on customer satisfaction, having built a solid reputation for getting the job done in a cost-effective and time-saving manner, with minimal disruption to its client’s day-to-day operations.

D.J. McGauley and Associates recognizes that every office design, relocation and renovation is unique. Therefore they provide custom corporate relocation packages for each and every client. The package includes preliminary feasibility studies during the office design process to ensure the client is fully prepared for their office move or renovation before it begins.

 

Our Core Team

  • Mike McGauley

    Mike McGauley

    Principal

    “I run 50 to 100 corporate relocations and renovations a year – and I love it. We make your office space design ideas come to life”

    Michael joined D.J. McGauley & Associates Inc. as an office move coordinator in 1997 and soon became a trusted corporate relocations and renovations project manager. Working alongside his father Daniel McGauley, who began the company in 1992, Michael learned the business inside out.

    He shared his father’s passion for office space design ideas, surpassing client expectations and making corporate relocations as stress-free as possible. In 2006, with his father’s sudden passing, Michael took over the company and has carried on the family tradition of service excellence, incorporating superior, intuitive and catered office interior designs into every client project.

    With nineteen years in the corporate relocations, renovations and space planning industry, Michael fully understands the challenges and intricacies involved in relocating a business. He knows exactly what’s at stake when an office moves and he knows that it goes well beyond just getting from point A to point B – the right location and contractors have to be selected, work stations need to be assembled and in the right places, the phones and computers must be installed and operational, and office interior designs must be completed on time and on budget.
