Community First!, a master planned Austin residential whose mission is to house the chronically homeless, broke ground . Founded by Alan Graham, the founder of Mobile Loaves and Fishes, the project is being developed outside of city limits in East Austin.
We worked hand in hand with Mobile Loaves and Fishes during the planning of their CommunityFirst! endeavor. Over the past few years, we have donated our preconstruction services for many of their upcoming projects. In helping them create the initial overall project budget, our estimators donated over 100 hours of time. While helping to develop their site package pricing and bidding, our estimators spent over 100 hours. They spent an estimated fifty hours in the building’s pricing. Throughout the construction of the community building we performed our services with no fee, a $50,000 value. In this way, we are able to truly help the community doing what we do best, general contracting.
