Randy Noble, Houle Electric | Chief Estimator & Regional Manager
Randy Noble started with Houle Electric in 1988 and in the years that followed pursued continuing education to provide the skills he needed to advance in the company.
He began managing projects with the Victoria Construction Division in late 1998 developing to the Construction Division Manager position in 2009. It is typical within Houle for estimators to manage the projects they succeed in winning. As such the depth and breadth of his experience as a project manager is equal to the span of experience listed with his estimating experience. He has estimated & managed jobs as both an electrical sub trade and as a general contractor. The value of these projects has ranged from small tenant fit outs up to multi-phase projects spanning multiple years and worth millions of dollars.
Randy has been employed with Houle Electric as Chief Estimator since 2020 and is responsible for development of policies and managing oversight of risk mitigation for an annual volume of approximately $600M of quoted work. He is active with the Electrical Contractors Association and participates as the Chair of the BOBS sub-committee with the BC Construction Association. Randy also regularly contributes as a guest speaker for Construction 101 courses at the Vancouver Island Construction Association.
Eric Lindokken, Kinetic Construction | Project Manager
Eric has 25+ years experience in ICI construction. For the last 17 years, since 2005, he has been in Victoria, BC, working as a Project Manager with Kinetic Construction where he has managed a variety of projects with a focus on health care and seismic rehabilitation. Eric started out his career in Manitoba, earning his BA at the University of Winnipeg, followed by a Diploma in Civil Technology, Design & Construction at Red River College Polytechnic.
Katy Fairley, BCCA & Fairley Strategies | Industry Standard Practices Consultant
Prior to founding Fairley Strategies, Katy was the VP of Business Development for general contractor Kinetic Construction. She brings a wealth of contacts and Association experience to the position through her previous roles as a Board Director at VICA, VRCA, BCCA, and CCA. Katy has served on numerous industry taskforces and committees, including the CCA and BCCA Standard Practices Committee and BCCA Executive Committee.
Fairley Strategies provides strategic advice for procurement, construction delivery methods, and contracts. At a time when construction procurement expertise is eroding and public budgets are stretched to capacity, the need for broader adoption of fair, open, and transparent practices and standard documents is undisputable.
Tim M. Sportschuetz, Sportschuetz & Company | Founder, Construction Lawyer
Tim is a general contractor turned construction lawyer. Prior to his legal career, Tim was the Chief Operating Officer of a civil earthworks and infrastructure general contractor, overseeing projects valued in excess of $8 million. He understands how projects are bid, costed, and managed, and knows firsthand the complex flow of on-site information and the way paperwork and costing documents pass through the project pyramid.
Prior to founding Sportschuetz & Company, Tim practiced in the construction and infrastructure group of a national law firm, during which time he honed his skills in construction law and builders’ liens. He acts for owners, developers, consulting engineers, general contractors, trade contractors, and material suppliers during various stages of project development and execution. Tim frequently helps clients during negotiation, mediation and litigation, and he advises on strategic dispute management prior to the commencement of costly legal proceedings.
