ABOUT CONSTRUCTION ROCKS
Construction Rocks is a charity event which calls for organisations in the industry to form a band and battle it out for the crown of CONSTRUCTION ROCKS CHAMPIONS. The event provides a fun and relaxed environment for networking, while raising much-needed funds for charities.
Construction Rocks is sponsored globally by WSP and proudly supports the property industry foundation (PIF).
The mission of the Property Industry Foundation is to make a tangible difference to the serious and persistent problem of youth homelessness. This is achieved by partnering with respected charities to build safe environments and support charity-managed initiatives focused on education, employment and well-being.
The Foundation’s commitment results in positive, life-changing impact on at-risk and homeless young people while achieving maximum social return on the industry’s investment.
Over the last 20 years, PIF’s corporate donors and thousands people from across the industry have donated their time, skills and money to rebuild the lives of young people who do not have a safe and secure place to live.
