RANDY KAUTZMAN- PRESIDENT

Every story has a beginning…ours started in a one bedroom apartment on the West End

 
 
 

It all started back in 1981 when Randy Kautzman began his career working in the concrete and high-rise industry in Toronto, ON, where he gained skills as a licensed concrete finisher and grew a passion for the construction field.

In 1988, Randy switched to the maintenance industry, where he acquired awareness of a variety of construction problems and discovered a great talent to solve them all. At his early 30s Randy landed a large contract to do all repairs for Eaton’s, once Canada's largest department store retailer.

After 6 months, when the Eaton’s closed the doors bankrupt, Randy moved to Calgary, AB, but didn’t stay there for long as the city was somehow too slow at the time for his extroverted and adventurous personality. 

In 1998 Randy finally moved to Vancouver, where his two brothers were already established. There, he learned all about residential construction when working to build house foundations  for Main Construction owned by his brothers.

The turning point was one day, when at a coffee shop, Randy ordered a bagel and waited so long for it that he had to ask what the delay was. The owner told him the toaster kept tripping the breaker. With his sense of help, Randy offered to fix that problem. A quick installation of a second outlet led to Randy being responsible for all maintenance of other 5 locations of Delany's Coffee House.

That snow balled and sometime later in 2000, Randy was supplying labour and materials to several American and Canadian maintenance companies and that turned into full time work and more staff hiring. With high volume of work, Randy founded Level One Maintenance Ltd. together with his former partner Darren Holiday. Randy became the solo proprietor of Level One in 2008.

With his knowledge, unique charisma and a passion for challenge, it didn’t take long for Randy Kautzman to go from maintenance to high scale residential and commercial renovations. Surrounded by a great staff and with excellent relationship with suppliers and tradesman, Randy has taken Level One to be a successful company, Winner of 2011 GVHBA Ovation Awards for Best Kitchen Reno, 2011 George Awards Finalist for Best Kitchen and Best Condo Reno and 2011 Finalist for the National Sam Awards Best Kitchen Reno. 

Randy’s enthusiasm to achieve the best results in every new project motivates the staff and definitely enriches the construction industry.

We have just moved into our condo after an amazing renovation carried out by Level One. We are delighted with the quality of the work and the attention to detail of all the team. The condo is unrecognisable and is exactly what we wanted - light and bright with excellent use of the space. Level One may not be the cheapest option - but you really do get what you pay for and I doubt if any other team would have dealt so efficiently and flexibly with the unexpected problems that arose in our project. In addition we were always kept up-to-date with progress and any questions we had were answered very promptly. We would not consider using any other company in the future after two excellent experiences with Level One.

Really impressed by the workmanship, communication, attention to detail and to top it off finishing on time!

I got a detailed quote and there were no surprises. The whole project seemed overwhelming to me, it was a full gut on a two bedroom condo. It went seamlessly. I was thoroughly impressed with everyone; from owner, to site manager to ops manager. They were very accommodating and realistic when I wanted to change something. It impressed me how knowledgeable they were and how they did everything by the book. I’ve added a ton of value to my condo, if I didn’t love it so much I’d flip it.

I had Level one do a complete renovation on my house. It was a long process and they weren’t as cheap as some of the other options but it definitely was worth it . They did an excellent job with the execution. Alex and Randy were focused on project execution and were very time efficient. I would recommend them especially for people with complex jobs.
— M. Anand
 
From the very start we had a good feeling about working with Levelone. Their level of professionalism was immediately apparent from our initial discussion about our project when we met them at the Vancouver Home show. Throughout the whole process we felt like we had the full attention of our site manager. He was incredibly patient and was available to meet on site or answer questions every single time we asked.

The final product was delivered with exceptional attention to detail, on budget, and on time. Apparently unheard of in the industry. We are now happy to tell all of our friends that renovations can be done on time, on budget all with an excellent relationship with your general contractor.
— D. Wilson
We were delighted with our Level One experience. They recently completed a full condo renovation for us: 2 bathrooms, kitchen, new flooring, lighting, fireplace. Their comprehensive service included interior design, planning, detailed costing, permitting, and managing all aspects of the project from demolition to construction. They use top quality trades people and we found the Level One team to be professional, friendly, responsive, and easy to communicate with. The project was completed on time and on budget. And we couldn’t be happier with the results. Thank you Level One!
