Concrete Homes Magazine - Doing More With Less
In 2009, Salt River Materials Group(SRMG) partnered with Habitat for Humanity Central Arizona to build a concrete home as a community relations and education opportunity. The primary goal of the project was to create a workshop to educate homebuilders on the innovative and technological advancements in concrete framing. We also demonstrated how to incorporate decorative concrete and the latest building science and insulation techniques into their designs. With the success of our 2009 project and our commitment to community involvement, we decided to build another concrete home.
Last year, SRMG partnered with Verde Valley Habitat for Humanity to build the first ever Habitat for Humanity home in Sedona. With the help and support of SRMG team members and the generous donations from our project partners, we were able to build another amazing home for a well deserving family.
