Mike, Jesse and Mitchell
My name is Mike Quail and I started the business in 1986 as Q-Bros, alongside my brother Barry Quail. It started as a small business with a bobcat and a mini excavator cleaning barns, digging pools and many other small excavation jobs.
In 1988 I scaled down and kept the business going as a hobby while I was an owner operator for a trucking company, but in 2005 I started back up full time as Quail Construction. We took on small excavation jobs, digging foundations, building driveways, installing septic systems, building retaining walls (both from natural rock and concrete blocks), final property grading, ditching, demolition and debris removal.
Quail Construction is a family effort for sure, I work alongside my son Mitchell Quail who works full time with the company as an operator/ laborer. Mitch has become my right hand man and has grown into an excellent operator over the years. My daughter Jesse works part time in the office and is on call as a driver or laborer if required. We also rely on a couple of handpicked subcontractors to assist with jobs when needed. They are tops in their trades and we wouldn’t trust our name with them otherwise.
Through the years we have grown and evolved to specialize in Natural Rock Formations, Playscapes, Retaining Walls (Natural Rock and Armor Stone), Hardscapes, Garden Art, Waterfront Reconstructions, Final Grades, Cottage Property Facelifts and more.
We operate from a great location on 2.5 acres in Dufferin County. There we house our office, shop and all of our equipment. In the winter months when we are not out working for customers, we are here, doing all our own maintenance, equipment repairs and painting, as we take a lot of pride in the performance, appearance and reliability of our equipment.
Quail Construction started as a dream, and has evolved into a family labour of love. Every job is done with heart and a piece of us stays with every finished product.
