Businesses invited to help build home away from home

GLEN Winney, the managing director of Win Constructions Queensland, knew straight away that Christensen House was something he wanted to be involved in.

So taken with the project, and the opportunity to support the community, Glen has donated his company's time and services to be the project manager for the Christensen House project.

He is urging other local businesses to get involved by making a contribution towards the construction of the much-needed short-stay accommodation facility being built near the new St Stephen's hospital.

"We are proud to be partnering with St Stephen's Hospital and to be involved in this wonderful community project," Glen said.

Christensen House is a community partnership project designed to provide short stay accommodation to patients, families and visiting medical practitioners.

The major cost of the facility has been made possible by a generous donation from the Christensen family. However the donation does not cover the total cost of the project.

Glen, along with Rose McVeigh, also from WCQ, sits on the project's steering committee, and would like to invite local businesses to contribute towards construction of the facility.

"We see this as a great way to support patient and family members from outlying areas during what can be a difficult time. We are also supportive of attracting medical specialists to the area, to increase healthcare services to our community," he said.

The Fraser Coast Chronicle and Channel 7 Wide Bay have signed up as major media partners for Christensen House, providing excellent coverage for the project.

"We are also pleased to have been joined by Design Plus Group, Steve Perry Landscape Designs, Engineers Plus, Waterwise Design Hydraulic & Fire Services, Wide Bay Geotechnical Services, Urban Planet, Pacific Coast Surveys and the Fraser Coast Regional Council (to name but a few) who have already committed their time and services to the project," Glen said.

As project managers and builders, Win Constructions Queensland is now seeking contributions towards construction in the form of discounted (or donated) services and materials.
