Nine members of the 15-person Women Construction Forum participated in a community project benefitting local nonprofit Safe Harbor, which provides services for domestic violence survivors and their children across four Upstate counties.
The project included a new, custom-designed reception desk, constructed from reused materials such as pallets, for the Safe Harbor Resale Shop’s new Greenville location at 2830 Wade Hampton Blvd. in Taylors.
“On behalf of Safe Harbor, we’d like to thank the Women’s Construction Forum for designing, building and creating such a beautiful register area to fit our new space,” said Safe Harbor executive director Katie Rockwell. “These ladies thought of just about everything, including a trash can that can slide in and out of the lower cabinet area. This is such a beautiful piece and gives our shop such a unique and rustic feel, and is a thoughtful gift from such a talented group of women.”
The participants in this project were:
- Rachel Veltri of Morgan Keefe Builders
- Gwen Sollenberger of Bunnell Lammons Engineering
- Andrew Sollenberger of Fresh Water Systems
- Laurie Gregory of Creative Builders
- Christi Powell of 84 Lumber Company
- Tori Wallace-Babcock of Mashburn Construction
- Lauren Dorrity of Johnson Group – ACA
- Natasha Sexton of Sexton Design & Development
- Wendi Carson of Consulting Construction and Design
- Angela Gardner of Hill Electric
