Cumberland Holdings Second Annual Rebuilding Together San Francisco
On October 25, Cumberland Holdings sponsored its 2nd annual Rebuilding Together San Francisco home renovation.
The project involved renovating the home of Mrs. Danielle Footnote, a cancer survivor and mother of 3 young children. Mrs. Footnote was raised in the mid century home and had inherited it from her parents. Her illness and demands of being a mother left her with limited capacity to maintain the home she inherited from her parents. RTSF qualified Mrs. Footnote through their outreach and application process, and determined it was a fit for Cumberland’s renovation team. Repairs included installing a new kitchen, 2 new bathrooms, new flooring, new paint, dry rot repair and a back yard renovation.
“The scope of work was very ambitious for such a short time frame,” said construction management consultant Bob Jensen (PacNW Consulting). “We like a good challenge and our network of contractors was eager to jump in and donate their skill for such a deserving family.”
The team included strategic partners and vendor relationships that Cumberland deploys to execute its value add real estate investments. The contributors included: Riverstone Residential, PacNW Consulting, JAD Construction, A5 Construction, Summit Construction, HD Supply, Sherwin Williams, Vics Contractors, Aloha Electric, B & B Plumbing, and Cort Furniture.
“This was a fantastic team building event,” said Susie Dow, Senior Vice President of Riverstone Residential. “We were excited to gather our senior managers from Northern California to paint, scrub, clean and make the home beautiful again!”
Cumberland’s President, Graham Chernoff, has been involved with RTSF since 2003 including serving on its board from 2007 to 2010. “The RTSF project is a great opportunity to gather our key property management and construction relationships on one day for a fantastic cause and team building experience.”
