COINS Shaker employees and employees of its client, Eastern Heating & Cooling Inc., joined forces with hundreds of volunteers to participate in a Blitz Build.

The objective was the monumental task of building a house in just 24 hours. The Blitz Build took place in Albany, New York from Saturday morning to Sunday. After three years on the waiting list, the new homeowners were able to see their dream realised in just 24 hours.

Fred Giardenelli (President of Eastern Heating & Cooling) said

The Blitz Build was an amazing project that involved the community pulling together with many different trades all working closely to complete their part. Shelter is one of the most basic needs in life, and we were all excited to give back to the community in this way.

The all-volunteer team performed a remarkable feat that required working alongside several other trades and overcoming obstacles not normally encountered on a typical project. Eastern Heating & Cooling donated and installed the heating system for the 1,200 sq. ft. house.
