Manager Wins Plumbing Award

Award Recognizes Contributions to Codes and Standards

EDMONTON, Alberta, Canada — Shabbir Rawalpindiwala, manager, codes and standards, engineers and plumbing at Kohler Ltd., was presented with the 12th Joseph K. Seidner award at the Canadian Advisory Council on Plumbing in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

The award recognizes Rawalpindiwala’s contributions to Canadian plumbing codes and standards.

Kevin Ernst, chair, Plumbing Industry Advisory Council, noted the honor is bestowed to those in the industry who share their knowledge and expertise in developing safer plumbing codes and standards through Canadian code development committees and the Canadian Advisory Council on Plumbing.

Rawalpindiwala has been an integral part of the standards development community, participating on several U.S. and Canadian committees, task groups, and industry advisory bodies over the past 35 years. One of his most notable accomplishments was his pivotal role in harmonizing a number of bi-national consensus standards for plumbing fittings and fixtures between the U.S. and Canada. His effort to make the system better has been a hallmark of his commitment to the industry.

The award was established by the Canadian Institute of Plumbing & Heating (CIPH) board of directors in November 2000 to honor Joe Seidner, the first recipient and an industry leader and friend of CIPH. Seidner passed away in 2003 at the age of 96. The award honors his legacy in the standards community.
