KIDstruction at its best!

DALLAS/FT WORTH - During the first week of April, Cham-berlin Roofing & Waterproofing participated in KIDstruction Week. KIDstruction Week is an opportunity for the North Texas regional architectural, engineering and construction industries to join together to build strong tomorrows for kids by supporting the Children’s Health mission to make life better for children.

 

 

 

    For the first time this year, KIDstruction Week held a LEGO build event on Mar. 2 at Children’s Medical Center Plano. Teams constructed of employees, Children’s Health patients and their families raced against the clock to build a LEGO creation.
    Heath Lenert and Justin Holiman, both Waterproofing and Caulking Project Managers in Dallas, each donated an additional amount to participate in KIDstruction Week’s Inaugural LEGO Building Competition. They were paired with a Children’s Health patient, Anthony, and his family to build a LEGO creation based on the child’s dream home.
    “He had quite the imagination with wanting a garden on the roof,” recalls Lenert and Holiman. The two project managers found this amusing as they have both worked on waterproofing green roofs on some of their recent jobs. For Anthony’s home, they also built a Lego generator in case his house “lost power.” You have to hand it to the imagination of a child. Sometimes they see things we as adults do not.
    While they did not win the competition, they all had a great time building
Anthony’s dream house and making lasting memories. One hundred percent of the funds raised benefit Patient and Family Support Services at Children’s Health.
    “I can’t imagine the battles these families face on a regular basis. It was just a pleasure to share a fun, carefree morning with them where it was all smiles,” says Holiman. -cwm
