The Vista Triplex in Sylvan Lake!
In February, the cold set back the build timeline a few weeks but we were glad to power through as quickly as we could! The exterior of The Vista is up with the two floors receiving framing and the trusses up and roof set to reach completion. We've had the generous donation of a trailer for site staff and volunteers as well as lunches and are ready for volunteers to help out on site come late March. Thank you Hopkins Trucking, FCSS Sylvan Lake and Summer Villages, Havco Construction, Zytech, and Pass Electric for the donation of materials and services to support this build.
Excavation and foundation pouring took place over the winter holidays to begin to prepare for framing. Thank you to Carbon Earthworks, Bildex Construction, Cobijar, and Lafarge for their contribution in materials and labour at this stage of the process. Services have been installed by Atco Gas and Pass Electric with framing underway by Havco Construction.
The families for The Vista are chosen and begin to work towards completing 500 volunteer hours each before they can move into the completed homes in fall 2019. Congratulations to the Dodd family, the Redford family, and the Schatz family! Habitat Red Deer also participated in its first-ever parade with the help of the Dodd and Redford family to decorate and attend the Sylvan Lake Santa Claus Parade.
Habitat Red Deer hosts the official Groundbreaking Ceremony to mark the commencement of the project! Thank you to the Town of Sylvan Lake Staff and Council as well as Melcor Developments in helping to secure land for the build. The Vista triplex is not only the first-ever Habitat build in the community of Sylvan Lake, but also will be a 2019 legacy build marking the 25th year anniversary of Habitat for Humanity Red Deer, making this build a truly special one.
