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.

    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.

  • So Patient & Accommodating

    So Patient & Accommodating

    This letter is regarding the professional and exceptional renovation experience we received from DJ McGauley and Associates for our brand-new Rehab and Fitness Clinic.

    DJ McGauley and Associates helped with every aspect of the construction project from beginning to end. This being my first venture in opening a business, Mike and his team explained every step and was open about everything, especially the finances. DJ McGauley and Associates took care of the initial consultation, interior design, obtaining necessary approvals and permits, implementing our computer system, construction management, furniture sourcing and the project management. We leaned on them to help us determine correct dimensions and interior design choices of each room as it was hard for us to see the end product. They were so patient and accommodating whenever we wanted to discuss our worries again. It all turned out perfectly and we are so glad to have their guidance. Without them we would have made more than a few wrong decisions. The years of experience really showed during this project. It all turned out to be exactly what we had hoped for. There was a tight timeline from getting the permits to opening day and they got it completed. The team proved to be reliable and diligent throughout the construction.

    Mike and his team found creative solutions building a highly professional clinic on a reasonable budget. We greatly appreciated the personal involvement, availability and attention the field and office staff dedicated to the project.

    I have no hesitation recommending DJ McGauley and Associates for commercial renovations and office organizational services.

    Sincerely,

    Sabrina Chow, Physiotherapist

    “DJ McGauley & Associates are an intelligent, highly skilled and competent team of individuals. It was a pleasure to build a rapport with the contractors. The construction work was completed during over night working schedules and as agreed there was no disruption to our Corporation’s daily business. This was greatly appreciated by us as their client with a busy office environment.
