Throughout the year New Hampshire Businesses for Social Responsibility collects "Just One Thing" stories of sustainability initiatives from across the state, in the areas of community, environment and workplace. These leading efforts are then showcased as part of NHBSR's Sustainability Slam in the fall. Last year Jewett Construction won NHBSR's 2017 Sustainability Slam for its invaluable contributions to New Hampshire communities.

For nearly 50 years, Jewett Construction has had a strong commitment to community engagement and supporting nonprofits. One of Jewett’s first nonprofit capital projects was for the Boy Scouts of America to construct the Camp Carpenter dining hall in Manchester, NH. Since then Jewett Construction has played a pivotal role in ensuring nonprofits across New England are able to build the facilities they need to run their programs and services, including the YMCA in Exeter, NH, the Monarch School of New England in Rochester, NH and the Center for Wildlife in York, Maine.
In supporting nonprofit projects along varied stages of their expansion, from their capital campaigns to leveraging community partnerships and resources to the final phases of construction, Jewett is able to create a positive and, ultimately, very successful building experience for nonprofits. Jewett is particularly experienced in finding creative and inexpensive ways to make large scale construction projects feasible to cash-strapped nonprofits, enlisting vendors, subcontractors, architects and engineers willing to offer in kind donations or materials at costs.
There is a risk in being involved in such lengthy projects with so many moving parts and pieces, but Jewett Construction remains steadfastly committed to supporting nonprofits and the crucial community services they provide. Ever mindful of the impact Jewett has in its communities and the world, the construction company is also particularly attentive to building using environmentally friendly techniques, such as incorporating recycled materials, solar panels and natural skylight features and elements.
Learn more about Jewett Constructions' winning Just One Thing story and the work of other leading business in the state by attending NHBSR's Sustainability Slam on November 1 in Amherst, NH. "The Sustainability Slam is a great learning experience." Eric Cimon, Marketing Directors of Jewett Construction, enthused, "You will take away something your company can apply in your own work and connect with other great businesses in the state. It helped us highlight the work that we do with nonprofits, work that a lot of people didn't realize we had a commitment to. And it's just a really great creative platform. I don't know of any similar presentation platform out there that is as effective at showcasing a company's sustainability work. We got a lot of exposure by participating and it opened up a number of doors to additional projects."
