Consolidated and architect Blue Design Group worked together to generate enthusiasm for the project, encouraging the involvement of subcontractors in the area who could help through donations. During the bidding process, sub-contractors were asked to submit bids and indicate what they were willing to provide as a donation, either in-kind or cash at the end of the project. 25 sub-contractors provided their support for this project, totaling more than $90,000.
Labor savings on the project were realized through the use of volunteers, including those from the Outagamie County Jail Sanger B. Powers work release program. Hundreds of volunteers helped with landscaping, construction and moving the FVHA into their new building. These activities were integrated into the project schedule and budget.
