National Rebuilding Day 
Saturday, April 25, 2009

 

Mountain Construction sponsored a home repair project again for Rebuilding Day 2009.  

This was our 4th year as a House Sponsor for Rebuilding Together South Sound, a nationwide, locally operated organization that coordinates volunteers to repair the homes of less advantaged families, especially elderly, disabled, and families with children.

Mountain Construction sponsors a House Project, and our employees volunteer their time and skills on Rebuilding Day.

This year we were teamed up with Apple Physical Therapy to repair the home of a single mom in Tacoma.  Repairs and maintenance included replacement of a 2nd floor deck and stair in the back, refinishing and reinstalling hand-railings, a new microwave oven, electrical repairs (thanks to Steve Curnow of Electric Systems, LLC), interior painting and major lawn & garden maintenance.

Thanks to our volunteers for contributing their time and skill:

Washington Business Week

2007 Construction Week

Mountain Construction sponsored WBW's first Construction Week, a week-long intensive summer residential course in construction and development for high school students at Central Washington University.  

Student "companies" (like the one shown at right) simulated residential and commercial developments from beginning to end: site selection, design, attracting investors, financing, permitting, construction and marketing.  Students also toured actual jobsites, constructed a concrete footing, and learned about various construction methods and materials.  

For more information about Washington Business Week and it's summer and school-year business programs for high school students, visit www.WBW.org or call 253-815-6900.

Zoobilee   From 1996 to 2006 Mountain sponsored Zoobilee, the gala fund raiser for the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium.  We provided significant in-kind support in the form of labor and equipment to set-up and break down pavilions and other structures used during the summer black-tie event.
