Local Construction Company Lends Helping Hand to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Charlotte
Concorde Construction Company, located in Southwest Charlotte’s growing mixed-use community of Ayrsley, recently completed a “gift-in-kind” project for Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Charlotte.
“We are so grateful to Concorde Construction for their expertise and in-kind gift to our organization. This generous gift allows us to make the very best use of our resources by directly serving more children in need of the life-changing gift of a mentor,” says Karen Calder, the Chief Executive Officer of Big Brothers Big Sisters Charlotte.
Concorde also made cosmetic repairs to several of the offices including drywall repair and painting. The retail value of the work that was done was roughly $25k but was completed for under $10K. When asked where the desire to pitch in stemmed from, company president, David Privitera had this to say:
“The work that Big Brothers Big Sisters of Charlotte does in our community is immeasurable. The lives they touch are truly impacted for the better, and they do it with a shoe-string budget. If we can help them by creating a cleaner, safer work environment, it’s the least we can do to help.”
Concorde Construction Company is a full service general contractor providing construction, pre-construction, consulting and design-build services to a range of commercial, hospitality, urban mixed-use, medical office, industrial and multi-unit clients. Since its inception in 1994, Concorde has distinguished itself through the successful completion of many high-profile, complex projects throughout the Carolinas. Concorde is located in Charlotte, NC. www.concordeconst.com.
Founded nationally more than 100 years ago and in 1972 locally, Big Brothers Big Sisters pairs adult mentor "Bigs" with five- to 15-year-old "Littles" for one-on-one mentoring opportunities that result in positive growth. National and local statistics prove Littles involved in the program perform better in school, are more likely to graduate and less likely to engage in risky behaviors such as using drugs or violence. http://www.bbbscharlotte.org/
