Congratulations to our Lead Estimator, Brad Springer, and his team on receiving this year's Community Design Award. The volunteer team was selected among three finalists based on excellence in design, collaboration, and community impact and was presented the award at the AIA Philadelphia Design Awards Gala on October 18th.
With an open heart and willing hand, the women of McDonald Building Company volunteered in Norristown last Friday to “Build Like a Girl” and participate in Women's Build Week for Montgomery County Habitat for Humanity's latest project. This year the Women Build Week volunteers rehabbed a 3-story row home, a home located in the heart of the Neighborhood Revitalization Zone in Norristown. Led by Patti and Debbie, two dedicated and knowledgeable Habitat volunteers, the MBC crew teamed up to frame the exterior walls and windows of the master bedroom along with some flooring prep.
The Carey family of five is settling into their newly renovated home thanks to Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County. Unable to afford a place large enough to house the whole family, this hardworking mom moved her family into her parents' modest home to save her resources while she worked full-time as a med tech and attended college part-time. After 20 months and 200 hours of "sweat equity" including volunteer work on her own home, Sanae and her family have a newly renovated place on W. Airy Street in Norristown to call home. MBC was there to celebrate in the Home Dedication Ceremony last month and tour the space.
The women of McDonald Building Company grabbed some coffee and power tools and headed over to Airy Street in Norristown last Friday to participate in Women's Build Week for Montgomery County Habitat for Humanity's latest project. With no experience necessary, Women's Build Week brought together a great group of women volunteers who all had the same goal in mind - to help single mom Sanae achieve her dream of owning a home.
