Habitat for Humanity


This November the Davy Team was thrilled to get involved with Habitat for Humanity.

The team was put to work helping with new construction, working to support site clean, SWPP compliance, roofing and framing.  The team was divided into small groups and supported by both the site Superintendent and team leads, made of regular volunteers with considerable experience.  14 volunteers from Davy Architehelped to frame, put of the roo, and clean up the site (including SWPP work).
