Press Release- Division 9 Flooring and Turner Construction come together for Turner’s Paint The Town Blue Event
Woodinville, Wa ‐ Division 9 Flooring, a specialty flooring contractor, recently donated carpet, padding and installation to Rebuilding Together, an agency that provides low income home owners with critical home repair and upgrades. The project is part of Paint The Town Blue, a program that Turner Construction employees participate in yearly. Turner Construction is an international construction services company. The program gives employees an opportunity to give back to the communities they live and work in.
Turner’s Paint The Town Blue program benefits many different agencies in our area including Fare Start, Ronald McDonald House, First Tee, Immanuel Community Services, White Center Food Bank, Ballard Food Bank and Rebuilding Together.
The Montlake Rebuilding Together project home belongs to a woman named Louise who has lived there for 50 years. She was unable to manage upkeep on her home and the stairs were in rough shape.
Turne Construction MEP Engineer Jonelle Tuffs says “ Over time, the carpet on her front steps had become worn, moss-ridden, and slippery. The carpet on the inside was in terrible shape and presented a major trip hazard as well ‐ it was worn to the threads, buckling, and torn on nearly every step. Louise had placed small area rugs over the steps to cover the look but it created an even greater tripping hazard.” Division 9 Flooring and Turner Construction teamed up to outfit and install new carpeting on the stairs inside and outside of Louise’s home.
Melissa Rossi, CFO, for Division 9 Flooring says, “Supporting our community is an essential goal of Division 9’s corporate stewardship commitment. This project was particularly rewarding for us, as an opportunity to both improve the health & human safety, and preserve the historic character, of a classic Seattle residence.”
