We consult regularly with our partners throughout the design process to ensure that the needs of the organization are met. This is a crucial part of the design stage. We work with pro bono architects and engineers to create a design that takes into account local resources, topography and climate, leading to an efficient and sustainable structure. Learning from past experiences, CfC constantly seeks out innovative ways to improve it’s methods for the benefit of all future projects and partners.
We provide all management necessary to complete the construction project. Our volunteer Project Managers live in the community for the duration of the project to oversee all scheduling, budgeting, procurement, quality control and value engineering.
All construction workers are hired from the community and all materials are sourced locally to create spillover effects for the regional economy. Our Project Managers ensure that local workers learn new construction skills and trades, enabling them to provide for their families, give back to their community and elevate the quality of infrastructure long after we leave.
On a case by case basis, we may provide grants to cover the cost of construction materials, labor and other building-related costs. Our contribution depends on the size of the organization, the need and the community impact. Community grants will be awarded annually in May.
