Homebuilders Care Program Chooses Brunswick Street Mission

HALIFAX, NS - - The Homebuilders Care Program of the Nova Scotia Home Builders’ Association has chosen the Brunswick Street Mission as it project for 2013. 

The $100,000 renovation will be accomplished with material and labour donated by members of the Nova Scotia Home Builders’ Association. The renovation will include new water conserving plumbing fixtures, energy efficient windows, new wood siding for the front elevation, as well as new eavestrough and downspouts. 

As a Home Builders’ Association, the organization is able to help non-profit associations in the community with their physical structures. 

“By making their building more energy efficient, while at the same time reducing their water usage, we are able to provide the Brunswick Street Mission with an opportunity to spend more of their resources on their clients and less on their building maintenance and upgrades,” says Paul Pettipas, NSHBA chief executive officer. 

Member firms who have currently committed labour and material to the Brunswick Street Mission project include Peter Kohler Windows and Entrance Systems, Lee Castle Plumbing & Heating, Marwood Ltd. (Cape Cod Siding), Sherwin Williams and Econo New Construction & Renovations. 

The Nova Scotia Home Builders’ Association is the representative voice of the residential construction industry in Nova Scotia. The mission of the Association is to provide professionalism in all aspects of our industry and provide quality, affordable housing choices for Nova Scotians. The Homebuilders’ Care program was developed an effort to meet the needs of non-profit organizations that help others but have issues with the space they work in.
