TechBridge and Sponsors Ready for First Nail on 12th Technology Community Habitat House

Apr 12, 2016

We are pleased to announce the construction of its 12th Technology Community Habitat House in partnership with Atlanta Habitat for Humanity. Seventeen corporate sponsors have come together to continue the yearly tradition of building a new home for a hard-working Atlanta family. The build is a great opportunity for peer-to-peer networking with others in the technology community and provides a great team-building experience for all staff involved.

Beginning on the morning of Thursday, April 14, 2016, with a Wall-Raising Ceremony at the home’s site in Lakewood Heights at 11:30 a.m., the build will continue for seven weeks and culminate in a dedication ceremony that will take place at noon on Friday, June 3, 2016, to celebrate the project’s completion. Corporate sponsors of our 2016 Technology Community Build include 3Ci, Brand Energy and Infrastructure, The Coca-Cola Company, CTS, Inc., Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta, GE Power & Water, InterContinental Hotels Group: Global Technology’s Center of Excellence, InterContinental Hotels Group: Property Products & Systems, Landis+Gyr, Look Listen, MDI Group, Principle Solutions Group, Pyramid Consulting, SEI – Atlanta, LLC, Southern Company, Synergis, and Xpanxion.

As a first-time sponsor for the TechBridge Tech Community Habitat House, Brand Energy & Infrastructure Services is excited to join the diverse tech industry team on the 2016 build. TechBridge and Habitat provide our local IT team a chance to team-build while growing relationships with other like-minded companies in the Atlanta area. Brand Energy believes in cultivating and retaining the best people in the industry. We do that by providing diverse opportunities for our employees and the TechBridge Tech Community House Build is a great example.

— Jay Fisher, CIO, Brand Energy & Infrastructure Services

The participating companies have contributed more than $80,000 to build the Technology Community Habitat House and will provide 280 volunteers needed to complete the project. Keeping with the technology theme and as a special gift to the new homeowners, computer equipment with a Microsoft software suite will be donated.

Our CEO James Franklin appreciates the altruism that the sponsoring companies exhibit and is happy to be the facilitator of this philanthropy. “The Technology Build is a great avenue for IT departments to get out in the community to make a difference. We appreciate their desire to give back. This year’s build will be a great one and it is because of the support from all of our sponsors.”
