This spring, volunteers from Kiewit’s Central 70 and Brighton Boulevard project teams in Colorado recently spent a day with Habitat for Humanity performing critical home repairs for residents in the Globeville and Elyria-Swansea neighborhoods in north Denver. Habitat’s Home Repair Program helps low-income homeowners with essential repair projects so they can continue living in safe, decent, and affordable homes for years to come.
The project teams recognize how the expansion of I-70 and redevelopment of Brighton Boulevard will closely impact these neighborhoods. Committing time and skills to programs that positively affect the communities they work in is incredibly important to Kiewit.
Central 70 quality engineer, Elizabeth Barteau says of the experience, “I appreciate the project team putting together an opportunity for us to do something kind in the community together. Our skills in construction transfer well to the kind of projects that Habitat pursues, so it’s a perfect match and it gave us an opportunity to get to know the neighborhood while we bonded as a team.”
These Kiewit teams look forward to future opportunities for volunteering in their project communities.
