Over the weekend Hy-Mark participated in the Project Hope build organized by Doug Tarry Homes. This charity event saw an entire home built in less than 3 days! Proceeds of the sale of the home will benefit the surviving family of St. Thomas native Johnny Nooren, who passed away leaving behind his wife and two young children.
Beginning Friday, June 9th and culminating Sunday, June 11th before noon, the home took shape and was completed in only 39 working hours. Remarkably, site supervisors said that due to smooth coordination the home could even have been completed in only 2 days. Site supervisors and our own Hy-Mark team were amazed at the level of cooperation among all site tradespeople. This was especially apparent on Friday when there were literally hundreds of tradespeople and volunteers on site.
Despite high weekend temperatures and humidity, Hy-Mark team members – mostly from our London Division – worked 11 straight hours in a 35-degree basement to install the home’s HVAC system. Even with the heat nobody “lost their cool,” and the team was even able to start up cooling in the home a day ahead of schedule.
This is a great example of the dedication and work ethic our team members show. A special thanks to all who donated their time this weekend for this good cause!
