#22 - Building Muskok & Working in Rural Areas feat. Jon Morton (Greystone Project Management)
Play • 31 min

Muskoka is known for its distinctive timber cottage architecture and if you take a drive through the region, many of the developments you’ll see were built by Greystone Construction. Today’s guest is Jon Morton from Greystone, and he joins us to talk about what it is like contributing in such a significant way to development in Muskoka, getting into some of the unique challenges and perks the district has to offer. There is a perception that work is scarce up north versus in the GTA, and as Jon says, this has created a hesitance in skilled workers to move there, resulting in an undersupply of talent. He talks about the work Greystone has done to attract skilled tradespeople to Muskoka, getting into the advantages of living out in the countryside, the vibrant communities, and of course the high demand for workers of this nature. We discuss the distinctive style of the buildings in Muskoka, and how Greystone incorporates it into their designs while still meeting the quality standards and budget restrictions of their clients – all thanks to their incredible team. Jon also weighs in on how visible the effects of new developments in Muskoka are, thanks to it still being quite a sparsely developed area. For all this and other great talking points about Greystone’s history, philosophy, and keystone projects, be sure to tune in today.
