Charity begins with a home by the Rivers Edge
Pindan, together with the Master Builders Association, is pleased to announce it has turned the first sod at its 2014 - 2015 charity home at Rivers Edge in South Guildford.
The charity home is being built by Pindan’s home building arm, Switch, and will embrace cutting edge innovations to optimise water use and energy efficiency, along with the utilisation of a “pod” construction technique for the top level of the home.
The double storey 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom (plus study) home is expected to be complete by September 2015 and will then be available for sale late 2015. Net proceeds of the sale will go to Pindan’s charity for 2014-2015 , Parkerville Children and Youth Care.
Mr David Pringle, Managing Director for Pindan Capital, said Pindan’s culture, built on family values, and the company’s strong focus on partnership makes for a perfect fit with their chosen charity. “As well as numerous fundraising efforts throughout the year by our employees, we are proud to lend our support to Parkerville Children and Youth Care through the construction of this charity home,” he said.
Mr Geoff Cooper, Director of Housing and Business Development for the Masters Builders Association, said other members had joined with Pindan to give a lot of support to the project. “Our members have responded generously with their time and products - from roofing through to plastering and painting to make this project happen,” he said. “It is an extremely worthwhile cause; we are thrilled to be working with Pindan and other members on this project.”
Parkerville Children and Youth Care was established in 1903 as the Parkerville Home for Waifs. Today, the organisation has evolved from humble beginnings as an orphanage to a nationally recognised specialist provider of programmes and services for children and young people who have suffered trauma from abuse.
In the past decade alone, Parkerville has grown from an agency with a handful of locations in the Perth metropolitan area treating and caring for 200 children, to one that treats and cares for approximately 1,800 children a year, delivering educational and treatment programmes and services across Perth and into the Murchison and Wheatbelt regions of Western Australia.
Mr Basil Hanna, CEO of Parkerville Children and Youth Care said they were delighted to have been selected by Pindan as its charity for 2014 – 2015. “We count ourselves fortunate to be selected as Pindan’s charity partner for 2014 - 2015 and look forward to working with them; not only raise funds for Parkerville, but to raise awareness of the work we do and the issue of child abuse here in Western Australia.”
The home is being built at Rivers Edge, one of Pindan’s newest developments. River’s Edge is located just 10.5 kms from the Perth CBD, minutes from the Perth Airports, close to transport, public and private schools and on the doorstep of the historic and cultural hub of Guildford and the Swan Valley.
All homes at Rivers Edge will have direct access to the Swan River. Rivers Edge features 51 house and land packages, as well nine exclusive water front homesites. All 51 house and land packages have sold out, with just three premium waterside lots available for sale.
