The “Hubbell Extreme Build” is a project taken on by Hubbell and area trade partners, along with hundreds of volunteers, to re-build a vital component of our community. This year’s project will be the largest one yet.
Hubbell Realty Company, along with Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Iowa, would like to announce the newest Hubbell Extreme Build event aimed at “Keeping More Families Close.” We will demolish the current Ronald McDonald House on the corner of 15th and Pleasant Street in the historic Sherman Hill Neighborhood. The demo will begin in early August and continue through the remainder of the month.
On September 11, Hubbell Realty will begin the Hubbell Extreme Build by constructing the exterior walls.
The team will then spend the next eleven days building a new 18-room house, fit with the highest quality equipment and tools to make the families using Ronald McDonald House feel at home. The build will occur around-the-clock until completion on September 22.
“We hold a Hubbell Extreme Build event every four years and for us, it’s about helping the community and making an impact on the people within those communities. We’ve done three builds like this – in 2006, 2009, 2013 – and this years’ will be by far the largest project we’ve ever taken on as a company,” said Hubbell Realty Company President & CEO Rick Tollakson.
