The city's first hands-on Preservation Month event of its type, Rehabarama http://www.sanantonio.gov/historic/Events/Rehabarama will include graduating, alumni and current St. Philip's College construction technology program students http://alamo.edu/spc/construction/ as team members when an entire city block of 18 houses in the city's Denver Heights neighborhood is transformed in a day of hands-on service May 13 from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., college authorities announced today.

The students are among the community resources mobilized in this effort to transform conditions in the area surrounding the college's campus at 1801 Martin Luther King Drive. To that end, the city has programmed a day of addressing exterior maintenance for issues on 18 houses in a city block chock full of aging-but-rehabbable housing stock in the historic neighborhood of Denver Heights, followed by a block party in Pittman-Sullivan Park.

The number of houses and scope of work required far outnumbers the number of available construction students, so those students will blend in and help on demand, according to college Construction Technology Program Director Gilbert Noriega. The possibilities for helping local contractors include painting houses, repairing siding and windows, replacing porch decking and railings, and completing other significant maintenance projects. The students will also serve as education partners in the event, informally promoting construction education opportunities at the Southwest Campus of St. Philip's College, longtime hub of the region's oldest community college level construction education programs, Noreiga explained.

"We are not running the project, we are team players. We all get together and give back to the community we live in and help those who need the help. I have seven students lined up to be there, and I hope to have more in couple of days. Our National Association of Homebuilders student chapter members are excited to engage in a hands-on partnership with our Denver Heights neighbors, the City of San Antonio Office of Historic Preservation, SApreservation Rehabber Club, and Power of Preservation San Antonio for Rehabarama," said Noreiga. “We will work with house team leads who act as the project managers for single houses as they help direct and motivate volunteers,” said Noriega. “We will be house team members, rolling up our sleeves and assisting with physical house repairs. It's part of our college's season of service, and it ends up with a celebration in Pittman-Sullivan Park where our students have sold food during Martin Luther King Day in order to raise funds for their construction student organization. It's another full-service day, less than 10 hours after our college's graduation ceremony usually ends, and we are excited," said Noriega.

The city, in partnership with the Power of Preservation Foundation, raised over $30,000 to support this event from outside sponsors. The project title sponsor, Guido Construction Company, contributed $15,000 in value to the project; Frost Bank donated $10,000; and San Antonio Water System, Pape-Dawson Engineers, Inc., KFW Engineers & Surveying, Silver Ventures/The Historic Pearl, the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, Whataburger, and H-E-B also provided significant support.
