KB Plumbing and Heating, a partner of Lethbridge College in numerous projects over many years, is once again KB Plumbing and Heatingshowing its commitment to the college with a $100,000 multi-faceted gift. The gift is pledged to benefit three major areas. The first supports the college’s new trades and technologies facility. A classroom in phase two of the facility, opening in 2017, will be named the “KB Plumbing and Heating Classroom.” The second component to the gift is to benefit new student awards in three areas:

• Three annual $500 awards for plumbing, the very first awards created for the brand new Plumbing Apprenticeship program.

• One annual $1,000 award for engineering technologies alternating between the Engineering Design and Drafting program and the Civil Engineering Technology program.

• One annual $1,000 award for the Administrative Office Professional program, in recognition of the invaluable role played by office staff in KB’s operations.

Finally, this gift includes KB Plumbing and Heating’s commitment towards The College Home partnership. KB is one of the longest-running partners in the history of the project, donating to five of the six completed homes to date. KB Plumbing and Heating has also taken a hands-on role as a partner in the construction of the new trades and technologies facility as the mechanical contractor - the company’s largest ever project. KB Plumbing and Heating opened in 1983, growing from a one-person shop to an industry leader with more than 30 years of service. Employing 120 people, KB is Lethbridge’s largest local mechanical contractor, offering both residential and commercial plumbing, HVAC, fabrication and welding services.
