On the 27 October 2023 Construction Control staff took part in the 2023 Lifeline Touch of Life charity event.
Unfortunately we didn’t take out the title but a lot of fun was had whilst raising much needed funds for the recruitment, training and professional development of volunteer crisis supporters in Canberra.
On the 15th and 16th of September 2023 Construction Control participated in the annual charity event Kulture Break.
A 24-hour movement challenge to help raise awareness for youth mental health. The event saw a team of 24 Construction Control employees challenge themselves throughout the 24 hours with exercises and activities such as rowing, ski-erg, burpees, farmer carries, bin basketball and dancing.
The Early Morning Centre (EMC) is a local Canberra charity which provides a safe, respectful and welcoming space for anyone
experiencing homelessness to come and have a hot breakfast and/or lunch seven days a week, access essential services, receive support and join in community activities.
Construction Control provided funds and labour to install joinery and purchased containers to update the EMC’s limited storage facilities
Construction Control Director Lauren Couter has taken part in Canberra’s Mother’s Day Classic fun run every year since 2007, raising over $200,000 for the National Breast Cancer Foundation – a not-for-profit organisation that supports research into breast cancer prevention and treatment.
Thanks to Lauren’s dedication and the generosity of the local Canberra construction industry she has finished the top fundraiser in the country over 10 times.
Construction Control’s Systems, Quality and Staff Development Manager Donovan de Ligt is a proud member of the NSW Rural Fire Service. Donovan was given special leave during late 2019 and early 2020 to help fight the Black Summer Fires in the Tallaganda National Park, Braidwood, Araluen and Nerriga areas. Donovan received the National Service Medal for his actions during the campaign.
With the help of our generous subcontractors and workers, Construction Control raised over $60,000 following these catastrophic fires, which was donated to four local brigades to help with equipment and fire shed improvement projects.
Construction Control provided a financial contribution and staff generously donated their time and skills to upgrade the playground at the Stella Bella Children’s Centre in Fyshwick, a specialised respite and occasional care unit for chronically ill babies and children.
The project involved planting trees, relandscaping the garden and building two cubbies, a chicken coop and a vegetable patch.
