Construction companies help prepare Reach site

Building expected to begin by late summer

With support from the Corporation of Delta, Delta Aggregates and Mainland Sand Gravel ULC pulled out the stops to get sand delivered to Reach's new building site in Ladner in short order.

In a community show of support of enormous scale, coordinated by Delta Aggregates, truck drivers volunteered their time to deliver almost half of the 550 truckloads of sand to the site of Reach's new child development centre adjacent to the Ladner Pioneer Library.

Delta Aggregates also provided in kind excavator services for unloading the preload sand.

Another local company, Mainland Sand Gravel ULC, provided approximately 5,000 cubic metres of Fraser River preload sand and will also donate trucking to remove the sand after the soil settles.

The preload phase of construction is estimated to be complete by August or September, at which time the building's construction will start.

"What a great way to get this project started with this wonderful community contribution from Delta Aggregates and Mainland Sand and Gravel," said Reach executive director Renie D'Aquila. 'This community-based child development centre will help vulnerable children for generations to come."

Reach Child and Youth Development Society has raised over $4 million of the $5 million needed to complete construction on its new child development centre in the heart of Ladner.
