John McLellan Contracting Inc. was thrilled to partner with Habitat for Humanity in the local build "Centre Towne" during November 2012. John, alongside various employees, got to work on the block of townhouses completing the roofing aspect of the project in Oshawa which will provide homes to 24 families. Participating in a project for Habitat Durham was a wonderful way to help out the local community and provides us with the opportunity to give back.
About Habitat for Humanity - Centre Towne:
This parcel of land was formerly the home of the Schofield Woolen Mills. It is located at 372 Centre Street South in Oshawa. It is in the southwest shoulder area of downtown Oshawa close to schools, shopping, clinics and transportation. The downtown core of Oshawa has been undergoing a positive transformation and this parcel sits in an established older neighbourhood just to the west of Simcoe Street.
We will be able to adapt end units for wheelchair accessibility if required. The homes will be built with the newest building code energy requirements as well as using Green Building techniques, making them affordable to maintain"
