During the first four months of 2015 the average water consumption at 25 Leonard was about 40 m3 per day and after you replaced the toilets at the end of April the usage dropped to approximately 15 m3 per day. The cash savings goes straight to our bottom line.
Building Up’s entire team was professional and friendly from dealing with Marc and Adam on the administrative side to Mason and the installers on site. Since Building Up has serviced our buildings, we have seen amazing savings and we look forward to working with them again in the future.
Many young men like myself from my community are not exposed to success much less expected to be successful within the parameters of society. Building Up has not only supported me but has also educated and equipped me with the necessary tools needed to be successful in the trades
I’m very dedicated to this program and I can see a long future in a career that will be in demand as long as I’m in the business as we have a strong passion for it. Who knows one day because of this program, I will have my own plumbing business and it’ll be thanks to BUILDING-UP
Building Up’s innovative, holistic and supportive approach allows participants to build their confidence, while gaining skills to become a registered apprentice in the construction sector. LiUNA Local 506 Training Centre is a proud partner that has trained and hired several Building UP graduates, who are registered apprentices, working on major construction project in the GTA. We are a proud supporter of Building UP and will continue to train and provide meaningful employment to successful participants.
As a partner in the Regent Park revitalization, Daniels’ local economic development strategy places importance on working with social enterprise organizations especially those with a focus on training and capacity-building above and beyond local employment. It is through this strategy that we began to work with Building Up over a year ago.
Daniels has contracted Building Up for general maintenance work within Regent Park and the relationship continues to evolve. There is interest internally and from community partners to continue engaging Building Up and its trainees, as the participants we’ve worked with to date have demonstrated strong motivation to work in the construction field and to meet our general maintenance needs.
