In addition, Bob recently served as the 2018/2019 Simcoe County Home Builders’ Association’s (SCHBA) President and is Co-Founder of FarSight Homes.
Bob’s passion for the home building and renovation industry has been with him since childhood, working alongside his father and uncles at Schickedanz Bros Limited, a family-business established in 1951.
After working at the MMM Group (1980-1982) as a Professional Civil Engineer, Bob rejoined the family at Schickedanz Bros Limited as the Land Development Manager, where he was responsible for land acquisition, development approvals and site servicing at various projects across Ontario.
In 2001, Bob, along with his brother Rick, co-founded FarSight Homes, the next generation of the family business. FarSight Homes is currently a member of both the Simcoe County Home Builders’ Association and the Durham Region Home Builders’ Association.
Bob takes great pride in being a second-generation builder and is thrilled to also welcome the next generation into their growing family business.
