As recent immigrants from Italy, John took his experience as a Master Stone Mason from the old country, and together with his brother Tony, started a small renovation company called A&J Construction. When younger brother Frank later joined the team, the company evolved into Inzola Construction which was incorporated in 1967.
Inzola played a key roll in the reintegration of the old buildings in the Yorkville / Cumberland area of Toronto. Working as Design-Builders and General Contractors for numerous property owners in the area, and even developing several properties themselves, Inzola helped to revitalize the area into the prestigious district that it has become today. It was during this period that John forged Inzola's reputation as a builder based on the principles of quality, integrity and commitment. Principles which the company still embraces today.
145 Queen St. E., Brampton
Shortly after moving their head office to Brampton, Inzola Construction developed and built this five story office building.
Bridgeland Medical Centre
During a brief 3 year period, Inzola successfully pursued business ventures in Calgary, Alberta, including the development and design/build of a 3 storey medical building at 1010 First Ave. N.E., adjacent to the city's downtown hospital. Due to the economic downturn in the region at that time, Inzola decided to focus its efforts closer to home in Ontario.
Inzola continued to work closely with Cumberland area property owners as a design-builder into the mid 80's completing landmark projects such as 136 Cumberland Street, a 3 storey commercial building on an infill site. Other projects included 362 Davenport Road and the Designer Mews building at 113 Dupont Street.

Brampton City Hall - 2 Wellington St. W., Brampton
In 1986, the City of Brampton issued a proposal call for the Design-Build of a new City Hall. Inzola took the opportunity to build on it's belief that urban design must start with a strong core, and won the competition to build the new civic offices in downtown Brampton. Understanding that the redevelopment of the city's downtown required more than the construction of a single building, Inzola conceived a project that would include elements from three of the four blocks that makeup the city's core, and create a project that would prove to be the catalyst that revitalized the downtown and stimulated further growth and development in the city core.
Market Square Infrastructure Project - 1 Theatre Lane, Brampton
As a component of the City Hall Proposal, Inzola embarked on a multi-faceted, multi-million dollar development project that would require the coordination and cooperation of all levels of government. This massive infrastructure redevelopment project would include the relocation of the Canada Post Postal Sorting facility, the construction of a new grade separation for CN Rail and GO Transit over Union St, road and utility services realignment of what is today Theatre Lane and the construction of a 3 level (600 stall) underground parking structure that is the foundation on which the City of Brampton has built it's renown Rose Theatre.
Church of Our Lady Immaculate - 28 Norfolk St., Guelph
