On 8th March 2019, the Building Hope project officially reached its first milestone. The slab has now been poured for the brand-new 272 sqm four-bedroom home located in Hobsonville.
As a result, the home is now well on track to meet the completion deadline of September 2019. It will be auctioned off for Cure Kids during their largest annual appeal, Red Nose Day, 27th September.
Landmark Homes North Shore/Rodney Project Manager, Jon Copeland says, “With the slab down, we are excited to move forward to the next stage of the project.”
Achieving the project’s first milestone has been a huge team effort. Landmark Homes North Shore/Rodney called on the support of their suppliers to donate materials and time at either cost or for free. Over 50 companies have already come on board.
“We were fortunate to have the support of many organisations who provided the materials and labour at a significantly reduced rate, and in some cases for free. This will help us ensure maximum profits are raised for Cure Kids on auction day,” continues Jon.
Jon Copeland has a close personal connection to Cure Kids. His son Corin (aged nine) is a Cure Kids’ ambassador whose journey living with a rare genetic heart condition was the inspiration behind the build.
“The Copelands are loved ambassadors of our Cure Kids family. We are so grateful that Jon passionately took the initiative and got this project off the ground. Together, Cure Kids and Landmark Homes North Shore/Rodney are building hope that one day, we’ll find the treatments and cures which our children need,” says Cure Kids CEO Frances Benge.
