At the 25th Annual Trees of Enchantment fundraiser in San Diego on December 7, 2014, Ledcor was recognized by San Diego community leaders for the services and dedication they have been providing to MERCI, a local nonprofit organization. This honor demonstrates the value of Ledcor’s collaborative approach to project success.

Ledcor’s Nathan DiFilippo, Construction Manager, was individually honored for his exemplary efforts to enrich the lives of the clients of MERCI. Among the awards were a Certificate of Congressional Recognition from Congresswoman Judy Chu, 27th District, a Certificate of Recognition from Senator Dr. Ed Hernandez, O.D., 24th Senate District, and a Certificate of Recognition from Assembly Member Ed Chau, 49th District. In addition, MERCI recognized Nathan as an “Unsung Hero” for going above and beyond his responsibilities as Construction Manager by volunteering at the organization on weekends and evenings.

Over the past three years, Ledcor has emerged as a valuable team member for MERCI, providing Construction Management services for the construction of resident housing, classrooms, and an office building. Through the partnerships that have been forged in the community, Ledcor has built a positive legacy that will remain long after construction has completed.

MERCI is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide developmentally disabled individuals the right to an education in life skills and the opportunity to maximize their independence. At the core of MERCI’s recent construction projects is The John and Mary Duce Center, a new group home that provides housing for up to 6 adults with severe to profound ranges of mental and physical disabilities.
