On November 12, 2016, SK&A Assistant Project Manager, David Pirnia, and Structural Engineer, Frank Krech, participated in a group "build day" and assisted the Baltimore-Washington Chapter of the International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI), with building a new home for Habitat for Humanity in Montgomery County, MD. Working alongside other ICRI members, David and Frank helped to pour in a setting bed over filter fabric and set pavers for the walkway at the front of the house. They also installed the remaining pickets in the fence on the side of the house.
