As with any major community project, the generosity of sponsors, partners, and volunteers makes all the difference. Sharefest would like to express its gratitude for one of our major partners, Balfour Beatty, for our upcoming 9th Annual Workday.
An Estimated $200,000 in School Improvements to be Completed at No Cost to Schools
Balfour Beatty is diving in headfirst this year and taking on projects at 19 schools (THAT'S RIGHT.....19!!!) in the Redondo Beach, Torrance and Wiseburn school districts. Over 400 Balfour Beatty employees, contractors, vendors, family members, and volunteers will complete beautification projects on campuses such as Alta Vista Elementary School, Edison Preschool, Lincoln Elementary School, Madison Elementary School, Redondo Shores Continuation High School, Redondo Union High School, Richardson Middle School, Tulita Elementary School, Washington Elementary School, and several Da Vinci Charter Schools.
Balfour Beatty Construction remains a leader in the U.S. commercial construction industry, providing general contracting, at-risk construction management, and design-build services through more than 2,400 professionals nationwide. It is no stranger to the South Bay community, as it is behind major modernization efforts throughout the South Bay and has been instrumental in previous Workdays (three years in a row!). Some of the projects made possible by Balfour Beatty this Annual Workday include interior and exterior painting of buildings, building outdoor and mobile technology classrooms, sanding and painting picnic benches, gardening and landscaping, and of course, construction projects such as building fences, wooden sandboxes and planters, performing irrigation work, and re-slurrying and repainting of parking areas. All of these projects will be provided at no cost to the schools thanks to our awesome partners and volunteers. We are highly looking forward to making the dreams of these schools a reality, and applaud Balfour Beatty employees and families for their determination to give back to the communities they serve:
“When I think about the excitement and smiles on the children’s faces when they see the improvements at their schools, I’m tremendously proud to be a part of this company and of the people and partners who work with us.”
- Eric Stenman, Regional CEO for Balfour Beatty Construction
“Participation in the Sharefest Workday is an opportunity for the company’s employees and suppliers to give back to the communities they serve. Knowing our efforts will be enjoyed by the staff, students and surrounding communities for years to come is extremely gratifying.
- Tom Schlegel, Balfour Beatty Construction’s Sr. Program Manager and BBC Sharefest Project Coordinator
