Guest Blogger & Volunteer, Sara Downes of Pacific Office Interiors:
Our company recently hosted a memorable Habitat for Humanity build day in Lynwood. The event was so special and every one of our volunteers truly appreciated the experience I have been sharing our experience with everyone we network with in hopes of bringing more attention to the great work of Habitat and how we all can become involved. We were fortunate to bring together associates from many prominent L.A. architecture firms, as well as USBGC-LA!
Here’s more about the build day:
Our 1st Annual Building Transformations – Community Event was held on Saturday, November 7, 2009. This unique and memorable event offered our industry associates, and partners in the architectural and design community the opportunity to start the giving season early as they helped build the first USGBC LEED Certified homes in the City of Lynwood.
We would like to thank each and every volunteer that joined in this special day! Special thanks to sponsors: Haworth, ASID UCLA Extension Student Chapter, Environmental Contracting Corporation,, as well as our friends from; Wolcott, Wirt Design Group, Shlemmer+Algaze+Associates, Zimmer Gunsul Frasca, Walt Construction, NBBJ, IA Interior Architect , VIDA Los Angeles, USGBC-LA.
