Washington, D.C. -- INSTALL members donate time and labor to several non-profits across the U.S. This was a win-win scenario for apprentices to continue fine-tuning their skills on the job while providing non-profit organizations assistance in optimizing facilities.

Projects INSTALL members have contributed to include:

Polished Concrete for The Wounded Warrior Project
The new INSTALL concrete polishing training was put to the test as apprentices donated their time to help renovate The Wounded Warrior Project facility in Derry, N.H. Instructors Eric Martinez, Brian Redshaw and Matt Attarian led the installation as apprentices learned how to prep and polish concrete flooring.

Hardwood Flooring for Ronald McDonald House
On the other side of the country, INSTALL members installed new hardwood flooring for a Ronald McDonald House in Southern California. Ronald McDonald Houses are supported in many ways by the by the Carpenters Union across the U.S.

Infection Control for Homeward Bound
Commercial Floor Covering Services donated labor and materials to Homeward Bound, a charity organization in Brooklyn Park, Min. that helps provide housing and 24-hour specialized nursing care for severely disabled residents. Due to the residents varying health concerns, INSTALL floor covering apprentices implemented Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) measures. ICRA saves lives by protecting patients from hospital acquired infections. Infections can be deadly to immunocompromised patients in occupied health care facilities during construction if care is not taken to control air flow, dust, mold and noise vibrations.

INSTALL is committed to increasing the flooring industry’s excellence while supporting local communities and organizations.
