Mirara Construction was born out of Artisan Stone where Guy Whittaker designed and created bespoke architectural hand cast stone. The roots of the company go back 20 years and many of the original artisans still work with Guy. The camaraderie of the growing team eases communication and problem solving.
The Financial and Operational side of the business run with equal importance as craftsmanship. Although business is innately the same, our processes are industry specific and have been mapped, documented and updated on an ongoing basis.
