Assiting others in a time of need

Puerto Rico - Hurricane Maria

2017 Following Hurricane Maria Will Pitts and others from WGPITTS mobilized to Puerto Rico to provide assistance to the residents of Puerto Rico after the island suffered the devastating impact of loss of power, water and food distribution. The WGPITTS team arrived on the first commercial flight to land at the San Juan Airport after the hurricane. The WGPITTS team spent time reporting back to Mr. Leonardo Torres at the Emergency Operations Center in San Juan on the conditions of the municipalizes in areas such as Arecibo, Aguadilla and El Yunque.

Grand Ravine, Port au Prince, Haiti

In 2010, Haiti was struck by a catastrophic magnitude 7.0 earthquake that resulted in widespread damage to property and loss of life. Many buildings had failed due to insufficient construction standards, including the lack of concrete reinforcement or improper engineering.

In response, WGPITTS partnered with DynCorp International and the U.S. Department of State/INL to construct the Haitian National Police Headquarters Building in Grand Ravine, Port au Prince, Haiti. The building was designed and constructed in compliance with the International Building Code (IBC) and its electric code provisions.

However, the local construction labor in Haiti had limited knowledge of the IBC, which is required by the UN and U.S. government agencies. Recognizing this challenge, WGPITTS made a commitment to build capabilities in Haiti by providing training and resources. They purchased the IBC in French for subcontractors and brought experienced leaders from the mainland U.S. to teach local workers and subcontractors how to comply with the IBC.

Thanks to this effort, WGPITTS left behind a lasting impact by empowering many Haitian companies with the skills and knowledge to complete structural concrete and electrical work in accordance with the IBC.

Giving Back to the Communities which we live and work

Shulzbacher Childrens Building, Jacksonville, Florida

The Shulzbacher center in Jacksonville Florida in one of the most impactful non-profits in Northeast Florida assisting families and individuals in need. The Mission of Sulzbacher is to empower homeless and at-risk women, children and men through health, housing and income services thereby restoring hope and self-sufficiency.


In 2005, the Shulzbacher Center faced a need for a facility that would provide mothers and their children with a healthy environment and quality time together, as well as opportunities for education.

WGPITTS and DR Horton joined forces to fulfill this need by donating a Children's Building to the Shulzbacher Center. Both companies provided materials, labor, and supervision, and rallied their vendors and subcontractors to donate construction services, materials, and labor to build the Children's Center. The result was a much-needed facility that helped mothers and their children at the Sulzbacher Center in Jacksonville, Florida.
