On May 7th, 2017 several of VERTEX’s Denver team volunteered their weekend for the VERTEX Habitat for Humanity Build Day.

Those team members included Barrett Stephens (Litigation Consulting), Ben Fay (Tenant Improvement), Bill Thomas (Litigation Consulting), Brenna Stuhlman, (Business Development), Jean Lascot (Tenant Improvement), Joe DesJardin (Civil Engineering), Juancarlo Quezada (Tenant Improvement), Kirby Beegles (Structural Engineering) and Ryan Phillips (Litigation Consulting). It was a sunny Denver day and such a rewarding experience; VERTEX worked together and alongside the awaiting homeowners, as they are required to work 200 hours, prior to moving in.

The project, Sheridan Square, will be the largest development in Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver’s history. Located on a 4.35-acre former elementary school site in the City of Sheridan, Habitat’s plans include the construction of 63 energy-efficient homes built over the course of four years. With housing costs skyrocketing across metro Denver, Habitat’s mission of building and preserving affordable housing has never been more important. Habitat’s ultimate goal is to create a world in which everyone has a decent, affordable place to live in dignity and safety.

Sheridan Square will create permanent housing solutions for approximately 130 adults and 225 children. Sheridan Square will add 6% more owner-occupied housing units, creating long-term and stable homeownership opportunities in the community. Sheridan Square will bring an influx of students to the Sheridan School District. Learn more about Sheridan Square and Denver Metro Habitat for Humanity.

Thank you to the leadership of VERTEX and the Charitable Giving Committee for providing us with a generous donation and this fulfilling opportunity, as a few VERTEX volunteers had never experienced a Habitat Build before. Thank you to everyone who selflessly volunteered their time; this Build wouldn’t have been possible without you.
