After two mostly stormy weeks of building, about 150 student volunteers, sponsors, city officials and Catalyst representatives celebrated the end of the Catalyst Blitz Build Sunday with a barbecue, said Christina Pantera, student project manager and primary media contact..
By Friday the two houses were mostly complete, and the volunteers spent Saturday landscaping.
The homes were furnished and passed final inspection Sunday before the keys were handed over to Anastacia Snyder, Catalyst’s executive director.
Completing this project on deadline was no small feat, but each day I visited the site the volunteers made it look easy.
And although the Catalyst Blitz Build was just completed, I’m already looking forward to learning what community service project the College of Engineering, Computer Science, and Construction Management have in store for next winter.
Check out the time-lapse video of the Blitz Build project, which shows the nine day construction from start to finish in about six minutes! Like the other videos linked below, this piece was done by Chico State’s great Academic Technologies staff.
