Rehabbing and renovating a home takes a lot of work and a multitude of materials. Building Performance Technician students at WITC-Superior are learning that hands-on at their first ever lab house. They’re supplying the work. They’re looking to the community to help with the materials.
The Building Performance Technician program is seeking donations from local businesses for this training project, which will turn a dated, drafty property on Clough Avenue into an energy efficient, state-of-the-art home.
Companies are already stepping in to help. The latest is AA Roll Off Service, Inc. which donated dumpsters to aid in the demolition phase of the project.
“We at Always Available Roll Off Service are thankful to be a part of this community and feel this is one way that we can give back,” said Lynn Johnson, general manager. “If our donation of a dumpster or two can help in enhancing someone’s educational experience then we are all for it!”
Materials being sought include exterior siding, an exterior door and storm, roofing materials, windows, a garage door, landscaping and decking materials. For the interior, the program is seeking kitchen and bathroom materials and fixtures, a high efficiency water heater, and insulation.
The donations are tax deductible and will contribute to the education of future employees in the Superior area. Specific sizes and amounts of certain items are critical to the success of the project. Companies considering a contribution should contact Chelsea Spreeman at the WITC Foundation for more details at firstname.lastname@example.org or (715) 394-6677, ext. 6323.
