THE launch of modular build Coast Apartments has resulted in a win for charity Cystic Fibrosis WA.
Owners and builders of the apartments StackIT are donating one of the apartments for auction with the proceeds going to CFWA.
Coast Apartments are somewhat of a first for the building industry: they are assembled from modules completely kitted out with all interior fittings and fixtures such as bathrooms and kitchens, plumbing and electrics.
They are a mix of modern, well-appointed one, two and three bedroom apartments located on the corner of Wanliss Street and Attwood Way, Rockingham.
Part owner of StackIT Ian Duperouzel said giving back came naturally.
“This is our first project, being modular it’s new and innovative and to tie in with a good charity like CFWA and promote the apartment; what better way than to give to a deserving charity,” he said.
“It’s a great privilege for us to do this, my partners and I have always believed in giving back to the community.”
The charity’s chief executive Nigel Barker was taken aback by the donation.
“I was gobsmacked… just overwhelmed. I had a tear in my eye and I just thought to myself, it just restores faith in human nature that someone like Ian and his crew would actually think of us and think ‘right, well we could make a difference’,” he said.
“We are very close now to talking about CF as a lifetime manageable disease, rather than a premature death sentence,” he said.
“Our vision for the future is lives unaffected by CF. By that we mean that every child born with the disease should be able to reach their full potential unencumbered by the disease.
“We are really close to achieving that and it’s great that StackIT wants to be a part of that success.”
The particular unit for the charity has also seen another business step in to donate. Harvey Norman has fully furnished the apartment.
The auction will be held on June 18 on site.
