Who We Are

Our passion to design, build and create started when we first picked up a block of Lego. And it continues today. We are a close-knit team of experienced designers, engineers, fabricators, logisticians and project managers.
  

We are inventors. We are innovators. We fix problems. Monitac is our home.
  

We have the creative vision, talent and drive to design, build and deploy anything. With highly innovative world class projects already delivered in some of the world’s harshest conditions, you can rely on us to make your project a success.

How We Work

  • We don’t just design boxes. We design spaces. And the spaces between those spaces. We create complete environments that are both beautiful and functional.
  •    

  • We are never satisfied. We don’t have “a way of doing it”. Our design teams never stop learning from each project and never stop innovating. We are always looking for new materials, new processes and new challenges.
  •    

  • We talk from experience. Our designers and management team have spent months both living and working in facilities Monitac has designed and built. We fully understand what these places are like to live with from day to day, what works and what doesn’t
  •    

  • We take our designs from concept to deployment – and beyond. Our design and management teams are hands-on in the fabrication and installation of our spaces. If something is difficult to fabricate to our high standards, or an installation looks dangerous or time consuming, it’s back to the drawing board for improvements.
  •    

  • Safety underpins every aspect of what we do. From design to deployment, safety is our number one priority. Read more about our safety initiatives here.

  • The Team

    When you get a team like Monitac’s together, great things happen.
