About Us

During the summer of 2006 and following his first year of Commerce at Queen's University, Scott Metherell recognized the opportunity to cater to a niche market of island cottagers within Georgian Bay and responded to this demand by creating and launching BigRedWorks in conjunction with his brother, Todd Metherell, and sister, Brynn Metherell.  BigRedWorks is a cottage maintenance and barging business that has been servicing cottagers and community members within the Honey Harbour and Cognashene areas for the past 16 years. The success of BigRedWorks can be attributed to our hard working employees, dedicated leadership team, and most importantly - our customers. This year we will continue to offer a wide array of services with the goal of helping you take the work out of your weekend.
