The Strathnairn Charity House project promises to provide a significant boost to a range of local community organisations in West Belconnen while providing a platform to promote the growing participation of women in the construction sector.
The project will see Master Builders ACT and the Ginninderry Joint Venture collaborate on the design and construction of a premium home in the fast-growing suburb of Strathnairn.
About the project
MBA members, led by KANE Constructions, will donate (or provide low cost) materials and labour. Proceeds from the sale of the house will be donated to Hands Across Canberra for distribution to four local charities.
The project will see dozens of builders, apprentices, subcontractors and trade suppliers donate their time to deliver a quality home that represents the best of local industry.
Promoting women in construction
The Strathnairn charity house project will have a specific focus on facilitating opportunities for women in construction.
From a design and construction point of view, the project will be led by a female architect and builder but more importantly every trade used will have a female apprentice and participants on Ginninderry’s successful SPARK Women in Trades program will also use the project as a live training site.
Supporting local charities
Proceeds from the sale of the charity house will benefit three local charities including Hands Across Canberra, Pegasus Riding for the Disabled, Karinya House and Canberra City Care Charnwood.
