A big thank you to all those who attended and generously supported our Fundraising Cocktail Party at Little Truffle, covered by Indulge magazine and on our Bill Hoyer Site here.
We are continuing to partner with local developer Villa World to build a second crisis care facility for homeless young people on Council land at Labrador.
The event was held on Monday, 30th May, at Little Truffle in Mermaid Beach. More than $10,000 was raised at this event, including donations of kitchen appliances and beds for the home.
Progress continues at Bill Hoyer House with a new year heralding the block work and frame installation, thanks to two local companies, Shoreside Constructions and Gold Coast Bricklaying.
Three Shoreside Constructions tradies were on site from first light in early January dedicating five days to erect the crisis care facility’s framework.
The team at Gold Coast Bricklaying, comprising an 11-strong team, offered their services and laid more than 3000 bricks on the site in the same week!
With the help of all tradies and subcontractors donating their time, skills and materials to Bill Hoyer House, construction is moving along swiftly, and the roof has also been completed. Villa World would once again like to thank its subcontractors for the following contributions:
Shoreside Constructions: Framework installation and materials
Gold Coast Bricklaying: Block work installation and materials at 20% off the standard rates
Dynamic Bradview Roofing and Bluescope: Free roof fascia and gutter, saving $22,500!
Twenty-two truckloads of concrete have laid the foundations of Bill Hoyer House, marking the first major milestone in its construction.
It paves the way for structural works to start on the home at 31 Olsen Avenue, Labrador which will ultimately comprise seven crisis care beds for homeless young people.
Nine concreters spent half a day laying the 448sqm slab on Saturday, November 7.
Internal and external storm water drainage was completed the week prior by a team of four plumbers and a bobcat driver over two days.
A big thank you to Villa World for their continued work on this historic project.
We also extend our thanks to the Gold Coast City Council, and the Queensland State Government.
