Jay Parsons



Jay Parsons is an Architectural Technologist with over seven years experience in the construction industry, having graduated from Sheridan College institute of Technology, Brampton Ontario with an Architectural Technician diploma in 2012 and a Architectural Technologist Advanced Diploma in 2013. pRior to pursuing my passion for architectural design and construction at Sheridan College I Attended Dalhousie university, Halifax Nova Scotia for two years where I studied Business administration with a focus in marketing. This lead me to work as an event manager for a marketing firm based in Mississauga for one year prior to attending Sheridan.

Coming from a family highly passionate for skiing I was exposed to major residential renovation, construction and design at a young age when my family renovated a 100 year old farmhouse which had been abandoned for 15 years on the side of a ski hill in the collingwood area. where most would have demolished the existing building we were able to look past the rough edges and see the potential that the house offered. over 5 years we completed all of the work ourselves from gutting the walls, excavating the basement, structural framing, electrical/plumbing and finishes throughout the home. Keeping with the existing Victorian style we were able to design a number of improvements which now make the ski chalet standout timber design unique to our lifestyle.

During my studies I have completed a number of freelance design projects including a four bedroom 2200sq/ft cottage with detached two door garage with storage loft on little lake Joseph Muskoka, an 1800 sq/ft Three car detached Garage with apartment loft in the collingwood area in which I also constructed, and Interior design work involving timber work, fireplaces and built-in design work.

being highly passionate for the outdoors and activities that come with it including camping, hiking, and snowboarding has made me very eager to learn, engage, promote and incorporate sustainable practices within the design and construction industry using my skills and education.
