In the spirit of giving back to our community, this November, the Xpera team rolled up its collective sleeves and got to work for a day of volunteering with San Diego Habitat for Humanity. The organization’s Neighborhood Revitalization Program focuses on improving the communities surrounding the new Habitat home construction sites. We were tasked with a revitalization project in their newest community, Logan Heights, a central San Diego neighborhood located between East Village and National City.
Our project involved building 40 feet of wood fencing, including demolition, workspace cleanup, digging and cementing posts, and construction of the fence structure itself.
Throughout the day, we learned that our chemistry from the office translated very well out in the field as the team came together and tackled all the tasks with enthusiasm. Everyone had the opportunity to swing the hammer, get dirty and contribute to the overall success of the effort. As builders, seeing the successful results of a hard day’s work never gets old.
The project wasn’t without a few minor challenges, however.
“As a team of perfectionists obsessed with building quality, several members of our team took more time than was necessary to discuss the best solutions for the tasks at hand,” joked Xpera’s Brian Hill. “But, we had a wonderful time and we in the end, managed to finish the project ahead of schedule. We’re proud to have been able to contribute in a small way to the outstanding work that Habitat does in our community and around the world every day.”
We look forward to our next build.
