Making A Wish A Reality

WDS Construction's Make A Wish project team

WDS Construction – based in Beaver Dam, Wis., and known for its nationwide projects in the commercial construction industry – completed work on a special residential project close to the company’s headquarters.

Organized by Make A Wish Wisconsin, the WDS team was asked to serve as project manager and on-site supervisor in the backyard of a local Wish recipient who wanted a swimming pool. Make A Wish coordinated the pool installation but WDS sourced site excavation through A. Glewen & Sons Excavating, gas piping from Stobb Plumbing & Heating, lawn seed from Rens Nursery Retail, and concrete from Lycon Inc.

While the pool’s delivery was delayed due to supply shortages, it finally arrived in September and, by October, Team WDS donated labor, time and materials to create an access path from the Wish Kid’s house to the swimming pool, and installed a pool lift so the Wish Kid could enter the pool.

WDS Construction’s mission is to build communities through its passion for construction and this project might have been on the small side of its project roster but it left a huge impact on the company.

Thank you, Make A Wish Wisconsin, for allowing WDS to bring this wish to life!
