By AccessWDUN Staff

Habitat for Humanity of Hall County has a new Director of Construction as officials move ahead with "big plans" for its Copper Glen subdivision.

Free Walker has a long and successful construction career, according to a Habitat news release.

Walker is a former Site Superintendent at Habitat for Humanity in Atlanta. While there, he managed all aspects of residential construction, from raising walls to obtaining certificates of occupancy, completing five builds per year plus renovation projects.  During his six years of employment at Habitat Atlanta, he led the construction of 35 new homes and supervised over 7,500 volunteers.  Free also worked at HouseProud Atlanta, Inc., a non-profit, where he recruited, trained and managed volunteers in home repairs.

“Free’s extensive experience and knowledge of construction will thrust Habitat for Hall County forward as we continue to partner with the community and low-income families living in substandard conditions to provide decent and affordable housing solutions,” said Alison McElvery, Executive Director.

“We are excited to add Free, a valuable addition to our team, who has a wealth of knowledge about construction, home repair, and leadership, which have contributed to his many successes throughout his career,” added Chairman of the Board, Thom Price.
