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.
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 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.
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.
Construction of the Strathnairn Charity House is underway with completion – and the all-important auction – targeted for late 2021.
