Case Construction Equipment this week named Seneca Landscapes as the most recent monthly winner of the Case Community Challenge, a program that recognizes construction contractors who support their local communities with significant community service projects.
Seneca Landscapes, Wake Forest, N.C., was awarded for donating labor, materials and the use of equipment in helping build the first “green-certified” home built in Raleigh by Habitat for Humanity of Wake County, N.C. During the project, Seneca designed and installed landscaping that contributed to the project’s goal of creating a resource-efficient home. The home earned the National Association of Home Builders’ Green Certification for energy efficiency.
As a monthly winner of the Case Community Challenge, Seneca Landscapes will receive a $1,000 CNH parts and service gift card to use at their preferred Case dealer. The company also qualifies as a finalist for the Case Community Challenge grand prize — one year’s free use of a Case N Series loader/backhoe. In addition, Case will make a $1,000 cash donation to Habitat for Humanity of Wake County.
“Seneca Landscapes was proud to use our talent and skills to help Habitat provide a high-quality, energy-efficient home, and contribute to the revitalization of a neighborhood near downtown Raleigh,” said Andrew Van Vlack, president of Seneca Landscapes. “We prepared the lot and installed native, low-water, low-fertilizer, low-maintenance plants and sod to minimize the impact the landscape and its maintenance will have on the environment over time.”
Each month through October 2011, the Case Community Challenge will recognize a contractor whose work on a charitable project makes a positive, lasting contribution to the local community. In November, a panel of industry leaders will select a winner from the semi-finalists, who will receive one year’s free use of a new Case N Series loader/backhoe. In addition, Case will donate $5,000 to a charitable organization of the winner’s choice.
Contractors can nominate their projects by visiting www.CaseCE.com/communitychallenge and completing the entry form. Case will accept nominations through Oct. 31.
