MHAworks Announces the First Inaugural C.F.D. {Creative Food Drive}

 MHAworks is proud to announce the first inaugural C.F.D. {Creative Food Drive}. This charitable competition was created to bring the Durham community together to enjoy a local festival while supporting a good cause.

Teams comprised of local businesses, students and the like will join together, Saturday October 15th at the Durham Farmers' Market from 2-6pm, to construct a pre-planned sculpture/design/structure of their choice. Each entry will be judged by the following criteria: most creative, most difficult, most food raised, best overall and people's choice. All the while the community will observe the competition while enjoying live music, local food and drink vendors as well as interactive games. All food items are then donated to The Food Bank of Central & Eastern NC at Durham located on 708 Gilbert St.

MHAworks would like to introduce the first round of teams: 
Alfred Williams & Company
McDonald York
North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics
Clarity Technology Group
Measurement Inc.
Whole Foods Market-Durham

Just Completed

UNC Children’s Hospital is ranked as one of “America’s Best Children’s Hospitals” by US News and World Report, making it the only Top 10 children's hospital in North Carolina. With this in mind, MHAworks was pleased to have the opportunity to design and renovate the south wing of the 4th floor newborn critical care unit. MHAworks converted an existing administration space into a 10 Bassinet Level 4 Newborn Critical Care Pod.
The center admits 800 infants each year. The addition of the new wing will increase the number of beds in the Center to 58, nearly a third of the Children’s Hospital's current facility.
 “The new unit shines as an example of the expanded access to this type of care for infants struggling with the most complicated illnesses.”  - Alan Stiles, Physician-in-Chief for the Children’s Hospital

“This was a team effort and it could not be completed without the help of the users and directors of the newborn critical center, project managers at UNC Hospitals, the engineers at dewberry and our general contractor Lechase construction services.” -MHAworks
