Local company lends a hand to project

A local company specializing in decorative concrete is stepping up to help build a Cathedral neighbourhood entranceway project using bricks from demolished Connaught School.

The first phase of construction, expected to begin today about noon, will be led by Roy Beuker of Beuma Concrete Specialities. Beuma is providing labour free of charge, with donated supplies from Ardell Steel and Cindercrete Concrete Products.

“The project fits with the company’s philosophy of helping beautify the community with quality work,” Beauker explained.

The entranceway project will consist of a decorative corner planter and seating area at the corner of 13th Avenue and Albert Street. After the concrete work is finished, Frontier Masonry will assist with laying down the brickwork.

It is the second in a series of community projects using Connaught bricks and limestone pieces reclaimed from the city landfill. On Sunday, Knox Metropolitan United Church and Regina PeaceQuest inaugurated a brick peace sign as the centrepiece of a peace garden at Knox Met.
