CMA Engineers Building Beds for Disadvantaged Youth

CMA Principal Engineer Michael Albert, P.E., and Senior Engineers David Cowan, Jr., P.E., ENV SP and Laura Vogel, Ph.D., P.E., ENV SP are participating in the 2022 Florida Engineering Leadership Institute (FELI). Part of their class projects is to raise money and construct beds for those who are not fortunate enough to have a bed to sleep on.  On February 19, several members of the class built beds for Vita Nova Village, a housing development for disadvantaged youth in the City of West Palm Beach. The teamed with NUCA and Xcel worx on the build. The team not only built 20 beds but worked with youth to learn how to use tools in construction – helping them to develop skills to join the trades, get jobs and better their situation.  The program runs from November 2021 to August 2022.  For more information, or if you are interested in supporting the project check out:
