Had a great time ReBuilding Together New Britain this past Saturday! Kaestle Boos teamed with the New Britain Department of Public Works and Scope Construction to help out our neighbors here in New Britain. Our activities included clearing out a hillside of brush and replanting it with low maintenance flowers and bushes; cleaning our front gardens, transplanting some flowers and plants, adding new flowers, trimming shrubs and adding mulch, repainting the front porch handrail, rebuilding the front walkway, fixing and repainting the front lawn lamp; repairing the gutters; powerwashing the exterior of the house, and repairing some areas of carpet on the front porch. In addition, several large shrubs including stumps, were removed altogether from the yard. The weather couldn't have been better - sunny but cooler. Much thanks to Brennan White for coordinating and great job to our volunteers David King, Luke McCoy, Ben Monroe, Amy Moro and her husband Patrick, Matt Kozikowski and his wife Anna, Alex McKeton, Chris Como, Paul Dominov, Suzy Schuck, and David McKinley from Kaestle Boos, Chris Rosignol from Scope Construction and Mark Moriarty and his entire crew from New Britain DPW!

Check out the photos from our recent professional photo shoot at Naugatuck High School.  This 342,000 SF renovation-as-new project was completed in 2015 and included renovations to classrooms, core spaces, vocational spaces and the addition of the Naugatuck Public Schools district offices to the building.  Code compliance and security improvements played a key role in the project as well.  Site improvements included additional parking, new circulation routes, and a new synthetic turf multi-purpose field.  Great job to all team members who worked on this project!

Kaestle Boos is excited to be volunteering once again with Rebuilding Together New Britain Saturday, April 30th!  Check out our photos from last year.  This year, we are going to be helping out a 96 years young New Britain resident who has lived in her house for more than 65 years.  We are getting our hands dirty with members of the New Britain Public Works Department and volunteers from Scope Construction cleaning up brush and overgrown bushes, around the house, cleaning up flower beds, repairing gutters, and replacing carpet, lights and sidewalks.  And it’s supposed to be a beautiful day to boost!  Check back next week to see new photos from the event.
