We Play Well With Others
Giving back is just part of who we are at Synergy. By donating time, materials or expertise, Synergy works to fill the gaps standing in the way of success for a community initiative.
Jerry Forbes Centre for Community Spirit
An Edmonton institution, 630 CHED Santas Anonymous has provided Christmas gifts to thousands of children and families in need since 1955. As the charitable organization has grown, so has the need for a reliable space to house toys, operations and volunteers. A group of community organizers set out to build the Jerry Forbes Centre for Community Spirit, a warehouse and office that will permanently house Santas Anonymous, and provide collaborative and affordable space for other non-profit groups.
Synergy Projects has supported the initiative by helping the Jerry Forbes Centre Foundation with front-end procurement for the 70,000 sq. ft space. Synergy has performed due diligence, geotechnical and environmental studies, and created construction budgets and building design plans. The centre is slated to open in 2015.
"We do what we do well, to help them do what they do well" says Marius Veldtman, Synergy’s vice president, operations and business development.
The Maier Centre for Autism Services
The Maier Centre for Autism Services in Edmonton is a multipurpose treatment centre for children with autism and their parents. Opened in February 2012, the facility has several treatment areas with observation rooms for parents and specialists, a multipurpose gym, a specialized outdoor playground, a sensory motor room and a fitness centre. The special design of the facility eliminates sensory distractions for children with flooring and acoustic panels that absorb sound, and muted and indirect lighting.
Edmonton business owner Klaus Maier donated the land for the centre and Synergy Projects constructed the building. Synergy president Dennis Mozak and his wife helped raise funds for the project, as well as donated their own money.
"We like to find a true, passionate cause and a need we can fill that will be beneficial to the community," says Mozak.
We believe the long-term nature of our relationships is a strong indicator of our dedication to the construction industry.
