Mécanique PCI proudly leading bold projects in building mechanics in the Gatineau-Ottawa area since 2001.

Mécanique PCI : since 2001


With more than 20 years of experience as a site foreman working on large-scale projects in the National Capital Region, Pierre Istead made the audacious decision to jump headlong into the entrepreneurial adventure in 2001. His drive and determination allowed him to launch Mécanique PCI and, thanks to his reputation and expertise, the company quickly positioned itself among the largest in its field. Over the years, Mécanique PCI has strengthened its position as an ally of choice for its many customers and general contractors.


Now well established, the company continues to grow and undertake projects, each one as impressive as the next. Always guided by the same desire to deliver exceptional quality projects, Mr. Istead continues to be an outstanding leader and the cornerstone of his company. In addition to being able to count on a young, structured and tightly knit team, he can now rely on the 2nd generation, his son, who will ensure the durability and growth of Mécanique PCI.
