Student-built Habitat house to become a home July 6


Students move a modular house they built at the Welland Campus to its permanent site in early April. The house will soon become home for a local family as Habitat for Humanity Niagara passes over the keys at a home dedication ceremony on July 6.

A house built by students this year for Habitat Niagara will soon become home to a local family in Welland.

Habitat Niagara will hand over hand the keys to the soon-to-be homeowners during a Home Dedication Ceremony on the morning of July 6.

This home was built in partnership with the College’s Construction Techniques and Renovation Technician programs, with 70 students constructing the modular house at the Welland Campus over the past school year. This is the 12th home built as part of the Habitat/Niagara College partnership and the second modular house built by NC students at the Rankin Technology Centre.

The home was moved to its permanent location at 47 Sauer Ave. in Welland on April 11 with final construction completed over the past two months by community groups and corporate volunteers.

The home dedication ceremony will celebrate the end of construction of Habitat Niagara’s 54th home in the Niagara region and turn over the keys to the new homeowner family.

NC faculty member Colin Robinson was invited to speak at the event. Speakers will also include Niagara Centre MP Vance Badawey, Welland MPP Cindy Forster,Welland vice mayor John Chiocchio, and representatives from Habitat for Humanity Niagara.
