2013 Legal Industry Shed Build

On May 30, 2013, our firm sent two teams to the first annual Habitat for Humanity Legal Industry Shed Build. A Total of 11 teams competed on the criteria of speed of completion and quality of the final product. Each of our teams consisted of a total of 10 team members made up of roughly half lawyers and half staff members. Our two teams were as follows:

TDS Community Builders

TDS Hand Up Partners

Our teams assembled and leveled the framed walls and roof, cut and installed siding, trim, facia and shingles and installed the door. While our team did not win, we built two sheds for habitat families and helped contribute $5,000 towards Habitat for Humanity and their fundraising efforts. Below are some photos from this event.

Congratulations to the winning team, Manitoba Hydro Legal Department.
