Builders Circle Denotes a Mark of Excellence

Peoples’ Self-Help Housing (PSHH) has created a category of recognition that distinguishes those partners who work alongside the nonprofit to ensure more affordable housing along the Central Coast.

The Builders Circle is a group of contractors, designers and stakeholders who invest in a shared vision long after the ribbon-cutting. The assistance through the Builders Circle underwrites resident services and ongoing support for communities that are resilient, successful and strong.

Partners who make a pledged annual gift can align their name with that of PSHH to leverage the association as a mark of distinction.

By alerting fellow contractors, and the community at large, to the membership in this circle, partners will be expressing their commitment to the community and those who benefit from the affordable-housing industry.
Already pledging support are: Culbert Construction & Plumbing, Morris & Garritano Insurance, Pure Water, Plumbing, Rea & Luker Architects, Bergantz Construction, Hayward Lumber Company, Hayward Truss Company, and Kaiser Air Conditioning & Sheet Metal.

Also, North Coast Engineering, Portney Environmental & Demolition, RRM Design Group, Robert Andrew Fowler, Landscape Architect, and Solarponics.
Membership benefits include: regular updates of PSHH projects, privilege of displaying the PSHH Builders Circle logo, a listing on PSHH website, mentions in social media, listings in annual publications, and an invitation to the annual Builders Breakfast.

In his letter to prospective partners, John Fowler president/CEO of PSHH said, “For nearly five decades, Peoples’ Self-Help Housing has demonstrated that, in the development of affordable housing, there is no need to compromise on budget or craftsmanship.

"Both bottom line and great design can be mutually satisfied.”

PSHH seeks out partners who are the best in the region with a shared philosophy in addressing the housing needs of the most vulnerable. PSHH works with businesses that exemplify and represent the level of integrity, quality and professionalism that the organization strives for.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
