About Us

Our Story

Deeply rooted in the Quadra Island community, J Toelle Construction is a second-generation family-run company. Since the 1980s, J Toelle has excelled in crafting successful construction projects on Quadra Island, Campbell River, and the surrounding communities.

Both Matt and Marshall embarked on their carpentry apprenticeships within the company, assuming project management roles in their 20s. In 2014, they jointly acquired the company from its founder, John Toelle. Since that time, Matt and Marshall have consistently delivered exceptional results.

J Toelle Construction prides itself on building beautiful homes and providing quality long-term employment for hard-working locals.

Marshall Toelle

Marshall grew up on Quadra Island, learning carpentry and construction from his father. He completed his Carpentry Apprenticeship in 2004. In 2014, he partnered with long-time co-worker Matt to purchase J Toelle Construction.

Marshall resides in Campbell River with his wife and 3 kids. When he’s not working he enjoys being involved with his kids sports and schools and spending time outdoors.

Matt Griswold

A Quadra Island native, Matt thrives within the Island community. When he’s not immersed in project work, he enjoys quality time with his family and ventures out onto the ocean for exploration and fishing.

Since obtaining his Red Seal Journeyman Carpenter Certification in 2000, Matt has been overseeing custom home projects, a role he’s held since 2006.
