The Gaines Group is proud to once again partner with Habitat for Humanity of the New River Valley on the construction of new townhomes in Floyd, Virginia. Our firm has a strong history supporting projects in partnership with Habitat for Humanity affiliates across the Commonwealth and has made significant contributions to projects in Blacksburg, Charlottesville, Green, and Rockingham Counties.
The Floyd County Project is Gaines Group’s third effort partnering with Habitat for Humanity of the New River Valley. This project will be a 7-unit block similar in scope and size to the Blacksburg Project we completed in 2020. Our special partnership grows out of the time the Blacksburg-Christiansburg-Radford towns played host to firm founder Ray Gaines while studying at Virginia Tech School of Architecture. To date, our firm has helped provide shelter for nine families in the area who will own their dwellings. Additionally, our firm’s work in the New River Valley includes the Adams at Peppers Ferry, a multi-family project of 168 units located in Christiansburg.
Beyond designing for comfortable living spaces, these completed projects are EarthCraft Certified and the Floyd County townhomes are slated to be as well. We are passionate about using design to positively impact our communities while upholding our commitment to designing for the future. Our partnership with Habitat for Humanity is a testament to these values.
