Hermanson Plumbing Foreman Kolin Kozlowski entered the trade eleven years ago at the urging of friends and has never regretted that decision.

During his four years with Hermanson, Kolin has worked on a range of projects including downtown high-rise buildings, renovations, and healthcare facilities. He has specific expertise in Trimble® operations and finds the technology increases manpower efficiency and accuracy. “Before Trimble®, the task of positioning hangers involved an army of workers with tape measures,” says Kolin, ”Now technology sets the points and a tape measure does a quick check.”

Kolin has spent most of his career at Hermanson working on high-rise buildings in downtown Seattle overseeing piping installation of mechanical rooms and boilers for domestic water. Kolin notes the impact technology has made on the projects like the AMLI Arc Residential Tower, and he would encourage all apprentice and journeyman plumbers to learn and be on the cutting edge of new technologies. “We have more technology than ever before,” says Kolin, “so get involved with it and learn how to use it. It will only make you a better mechanic and more valuable to the company.”

After living in Auburn all his life, Kolin, his wife, and two young children moved to Buckley five years ago where they enjoy time spent outdoors camping and riding quads. Kolin has always been mechanical and when not outdoors can be found hunched over his workbench working on anything with a motor.

It is foremen like Kolin Kozlowski who are willing to embrace and be early adopters of advances in the industry that make Hermanson a forward-thinking company to the benefit of both staff and clients.
