On September 4, 1967 Mr. Fred Harvie, a retired principal from Thorold Secondary High School, created the Facilities Management Services Department. Mr. Harvie was hired to serve as a special assistant to Dr. George Bowen, Niagara College’s first president.

The college at that time consisted of one lone building, the “Initial Building” as it was known. This building was later renamed the “Hennipin Building”. That was the beginning, look what has happened since…
