Thirty-five interns at Barton Malow recently gathered to lay new driveways, sidewalks, and a back porch for homeowners in Detroit. The company worked with Habitat for Humanity Detroit (HFHD) on the project and donated the materials and time to make the improvements happen.
The work took place at homes located on Maryland Ave. in Detroit. One home is an existing site that HFHD has been making improvements to recently. That home received a new driveway and front walk. Another project the interns tackled was at a newly built home by HFHD, which now has a driveway, front walk, and back porch landing. Barton Malow interns also aided with wall prep and siding installation at the homes.
The learning experience, which included hands-on training to lay concrete forms and pour concrete, is the latest in the partnership between HFHD and Barton Malow. The company made a generous donation to HFHD earlier this year to further support HFHD’s mission of providing affordable, safe, and quality homes in the City of Detroit.
