With Jack's Carpentry skills and Jane's passion for Interior Design, together as a couple they developed Marban Construction & Design. The business is named after the first subdivision that they built in as a team. 



Jack Schlitz


I began my carpentry apprenticeship in 2016 while working for John Schlitz Construction building new residential homes across central Vancouver Island.

I have enjoyed building quality homes over the last 5 years and look forward to the many more projects to come. With each new build comes a new challenge and new ideas. 

I look forward to working with both old and new clients in the projects ahead.




Jane Hawthornthwaite


Growing up in a family immersed in the construction business, paired with my love for all things beautiful is what inspired me to became an Interior Designer.


After obtaining my business certificate from VIU, and shortly thereafter an Interior Design certificate from BCIT, I have worked on projects up and down Vancouver Island!


I take great joy in helping my clients from the beginning, middle, or end of a project. My ultimate goal is to create functional, and beautiful places tailored to my clients lifestyle.


Rachel Balan


I have been working with Jane since July 2020 as a design student part time after we met through our Interior Design program at BCIT.


I am currently finishing my Interior Design diploma from BCIT and look forward to working with Marban Construction and Design full-time in February 2021.
