Kinzler Insulates House for Homeless Female Veterans

Kinzler provided the insulation for this new home which will provide temporary housing for up to five female veterans at a time.

Kinzler Construction Services is proud to help create housing for Minneapolis, MN area veterans in need by installing insulation in a new homeless shelter free of charge.

Each year, the Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans (MACV) receives more than 25,000 contacts, inquiries and requests from veterans across the state who are homeless or experiencing a crisis that could lead to homelessness. Earlier this spring, MACV teamed up with Kinzler’s building partner, Lennar and BATC Housing First Minnesota, to break ground on a home that will house female veterans – a population that is in serious need.

“We’re happy to be able to give back to the community where our team of local insulation installers live and work,” says Kinzler Construction Services General Manager Rick Cobbs. “We’re excited that this house will be able to provide temporary shelter for up to five women at a time.”

Kinzler Construction Services partnered with insulation supplier Johns Manville, donating material and time to install batt insulation, spray foam around the rim joists and blow-in insulation in the attic.

The five-bedroom home located in Maplewood, MN is scheduled to be completed in August.

 

Project Profile: Paper Source

Paper Source is a premier paperie and gift retailer, opening a new location at a former work-out facility in St. Paul, Minnesota. When their contractor, Tom Hammer Construction, removed the flooring during renovations, they discovered that the floor was uneven, full of holes, and in some areas, 1 1/2″- 2″ below the original floor.

Kinzler Construction Services solved their problem by installing USG Durock™ Brand Quik-Top™ Self-Leveling Underlayment. This flooring sets and dries extremely quickly, minimizing downtime – ideal for commercial and institutional repair and renovation projects. This solution kept the contractor on schedule and everyone was very pleased with how the flooring turned out!
