Markian Tymkewycz is a project manager at Royalty and has been a fantastic addition to the team. His calm demeanour and attention to detail are the perfect attributes to have in the office when things get a bit crazy.
Why do you do what you do?
I love seeing a project start off as a thought or an idea, have it all come together through construction, and seeing the joy in our clients' faces once complete.
How long have you been doing what you do?
I have been in construction since I was 16 dabbling in home and cottage builds---this when my joy for construction started. I have been in involved with project management for the past 10 years.
What are your thoughts on DIY 30-minute reno shows?
Some of the hosts on the shows are good contractors however they portray an unrealistic project timeline, which the viewers do not seem to understand.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
What is this “spare time” you talk about? Being a father of two active girls, and a very adventurous toddler, and working full-time does not leave me with any time to myself. When there is some time you can find me fly fishing on a river in southern Ontario. There is something about being outdoors by myself that makes me feel free and peaceful (unless the fish aren’t biting… ;))
