Community

We’re proud to live in this community, to be part of the success of so many educational and community initiatives…

It’s been some time since our founder, Mike Geric, has been referred to as Mr. Broadmead or that we’ve heard someone shout out “Hey it’s the Royal Oak boys!” But there’s no doubt we’re committed to supporting and growing these communities as we’ve evolved into a thriving development company with projects throughout Greater Victoria.

We’re proud to live in this community, to be part of the success of so many educational and community initiatives and to support our thriving sports teams and charities.

Royal Oak School House

Restoration and preservation – The 128-year-old Royal Oak School house operated as a public school until 1952 and since has served as a local meeting place for community groups such as Scouts and Girl Guides, Paint ‘n’ Putter preschoolers and Lion’s Club, among others .

In 2011 Mike Geric Construction restored the schoolhouse and re-opened it to the community. The schoolhouse is now home to Crumby’s Cupcake Cafe and remains free-to-use meeting place for any community group.

SIDES - Building Upgrade

The South Island Distance Education School is located at the end of Travino lane just a few blocks away from the Mike Geric Construction office. In need of a new sign for their building a ten-thousand donation was made by Mike Geric Construction so that the school could keep their funds where they were needed and best used, education.

Viewmont Streetlight

Part of building great communities is building safe communities. A new streetlight was installed at the corner of Viewmont and West Saanich road to ensure safer journeys for years to come.
