Algonquin Centre for Construction Excellence
“Constructing OUR Future”“The Algonquin Centre for Construction Excellence will help shape the future of the construction industry. Providing education and training of future trades people which will allow us as a city/province and country to remain competitive in an every growing industry”
– Johannes Ziebarth
Ziebarth Electrical Contractors Ltd.
This new $79-million Centre was designed to become the skills training hub for the construction and design sectors and will officially open its doors in 2011.
In 2009, the Algonquin College Foundation embarked upon the Constructing OUR Future Campaign to raise $7-million in support of the new Algonquin Centre for Construction Excellence.
Led by local business and community leaders, primarily from the construction industry, the Constructing OUR Future Campaign quickly gained momentum as business leaders embraced this unique academic vision and stepped forward to commit leadership donations.
Johannes Ziebarth was such a leader and on behalf of Ziebarth Electrical Contractors Ltd. a pledge of a leadership donation in the amount of $100,000.00 was made.
