Our Grandfather and Grandmother Joseph and Florida Chapdelaine came from Canada in 1924. In 1925 Joseph started Jos. Chapdelaine, Builder and through hand work and dedication to build a quality home, Joseph Chapdelaine became one of the areas finest builders. His homes are still very respected in Springfield, Longmeadow, and various locations in Western Mass. The name Chapdelaine is often used in the same description of homes for sale, as a testament to the quality of a Chapdelaine home.
The start of the 2nd generation occurred in the 1940's and 50's. Brothers Roland, Gerard (Jay), Bobby and Roger worked on the sites and sisters Yvette and Lucille managed the office. The family continued to build homes throughout Western Mass, Northern Connecticut and Southern Vermont.
Third generation builders RJ and David Chapdelaine still keep their grandfathers quality business alive today. JCSI is still a family-owned company that prides itself on managing each project, whether it be a custom new home or a bathroom remodel, from the beginning to completion. RJ and Dave still employ many of the same people as their father, leading to smooth running projects with quality workmanship and attention to detail.
