Brundage-Bone Steps Up to Pump the First Habitat for Humanity Partnership Project

The Build with Strength Coalition, along with partners American Concrete Pumping Association (ACPA) and Insulating Concrete Forms Manufacturing Association (ICFMA), has begun work on a first-of-its-kind project for Habitat for Humanity.

The project consists of nine, Net Zero Ready and insulated concrete form duplexes in Woodland Park, Colorado, and should be completed in 2022. The duplexes, which include 18 homes for families, were designed by Architectural Workshop and engineered by Innovative Engineering to achieve Energy Star and LEED Silver certification.

This is the latest project for Build with Strength and Habitat for Humanity International’s partnership. The partners’ goal is to fortify affordable and sustainable housing across the U.S. Backed by the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA), the Build with Strength Coalition of architects, builders, engineers, emergency services personnel, policymakers and more works with Habitat to help further its commitment to solving challenging housing issues.

ACPA member Brundage-Bone Concrete Pumping of Denver, Colorado has donated much-needed concrete pumping services.
