How Bright Build gives back
Being a family owned business, Bright Build believes it is important to be involved in both local and national activities that support the community.
Bright Build is fully committed to helping create stronger, sustainable communities. Since 2018 we have sponsored the Seatoun AFC Club Football Hooded Sweatshirts. It is important to us to provide support for non-profit organisations that help create friendships and encourage physical activity in our local neighbourhood.
We participate in the Gateway program, organised by the Tertiary Education Commission. Gateway is designed to support school students’ transition into the workforce by offering them workplace learning while at secondary school. It’s a way we can support young people by offering practical work experience and skill development, and help grow their confidence and employability. We have even hired a Gateway student who is now studying as an Apprentice with Bright Build.
Big Boys Breakfast is a major event at St Patricks College, designed to strengthen bonds between the young men and the significant men in their lives through inspirational speaker. The focus on mental and emotional wellbeing of our rangatahi is a focus for Bright Build, and we are the major sponsor in 2021.
We also support Seatoun School through donations and sponsorships (for example as Gold Sponsor of their “Lion King” production).
Seatoun Kindergarten has a carpentry area and whenever we have offcuts of untreated timber we cut it up into appropriate sizes and make it safe for the children. We then deliver the timber to the Kindergarten so that the children can learn construction skills and the joy of creating.
Jen is the first female voted onto the Wellington Registered Master Executive, and she donates her time to aid the local Association and builder members with a particular focus on improving building quality in New Zealand.
At a national level, we hold memberships for Passive House Institute and Super Home Movement. If New Zealand, as a nation, is to lift people out of energy poverty and move forward to appropriately insulating homes; it is necessary to devote time and effort into educating people that there are better, more efficient and sustainable building methods than those traditionally used by Kiwis.
