Building Something Bigger
Contractors Collaborate for Hospital Fundraiser

PEWAUKEE, Wis., Aug. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- It takes many people to build a house. On a tight timetable, the electrician, cabinet maker, and flooring company have to work around each other. Rather than let the ups and downs of the construction process get to them, a group of contractors teamed up to focus on something much larger - the "Dreams Built of 2x4s" campaign benefitting Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.
"The collaboration building our Houston Model was great, but the joint effort we're seeing now is even more amazing," says Jon Schoenheider, Regency Builders. "Our contractors have come together to raise funds to make the hospital feel more like home. With all of our different voices and resources at work, we're building something special," he adds.
The campaign is based on the common building material, the 2x4. Participants are encouraged to donate $2, $4, $20, or $40 at Regency's Houston Model home, which is part of the Metropolitan Builders Association 2012 Parade of Homes. Donations can also be made at www.chw.org/regency.
"Regency's Houston Model has been the center of cooperation for months," says Adam Butlein of Techteriors. "A component of this home is the technology integration. Automating a home with the Savant iPad application meant coordination with a lot of people - from the built-in security system in the windows, to HVAC, lighting, technology, internet providers and more. Building on that cooperative foundation to support Children's Hospital makes this project something very special," says Butlein, who describes the entire home automation system in detail at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y7_DGhnmq3s&feature=share&list=UUxb3Xxovt6dDutT3FJ3g8Fg.
"Vendor Campaign Partners, including Weather-Tek Design Center Sub-Zero Wolf, DreamKitchens, Techteriors, Colders, Flanners, Associated Bank, Schmidt Custom Floors, Nelson Landscape and Arndorfer Construction have made a significant investment to support Children's," says Schoenheider. "Many builders in the Still River Subdivision have also expressed pledges to the hospital as well. In such a competitive market, it has been wonderful to see the synergy our industry is capable of," he summarizes.
To better tell the story, Regency Builders has created series of virtual tours and interviews about the home features and the cause that it is raising support for. To learn more, visit http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL24BA435360A71B4D or www.regencybuildersinc.com.
