“It feels like we are building a little village,” Jean-Pierre Veyrenche, a WHO coordinator, says. To build a functional medical center, the sewage system needed to be created beneath abandoned government building, and water tanks and generators had to be installed. The undertaking, while almost riveting in its remarkable adaptive reuse program, also speaks to larger issues of monolithic government projects during wartime and the real scarcity for fundamentals like functioning medical facilities.

Materials from Jeannette hospital’s demolition to help nonprofit | TribLIVE

About 20 United Parcel Service employees are volunteering their off-hours to help remove countertops and cabinets that will be resold by Shop Demo Depot in Mt. Pleasant, a subsidiary of Westmoreland Community Action.

The four-story building contains reusable items ranging from ceramic tile to cabinets to bathroom fixtures.

Coolers in the building will be donated to the Westmoreland County Food Bank, said Jen Miele, Excela’s vice president of marketing and community relations.

Senior Vice President Ron Ott said reusing the materials will reduce landfill space while supporting Community Action.

“We are pleased to have such an outlet for items that still have value,” he said.

“This project is a perfect example of how businesses, nonprofits and communities can work together for the common good,” said Bobbi Watt Geer, president & CEO of United Way.

Old Culver project receives tax credits – journalreview.com: News

The award consists of $1,003,000 in rental housing tax credits coupled with $500,000 in additional funding that will be leveraged to complete the $12,155,229 project.

The development, which will be known as Historic Whitlock Place, will reuse the former facility to create modern apartments while eliminating a blight that has persisted in the heart of the community for three decades. Additional work is planned to improve the infrastructure in the neighborhood and create a direct link to the downtown area.

Keith Veal of Sustainable Solutions Inc., and a 1992 Wabash College graduate, is spearheading the project, which is expected to add up to 60 housing units for seniors.
