Key building materials from CSR brands Hebel and Gyprock have been
donated towards a community effort to renovate the home of Brisbane boy, Calyn
Hoad who was injured in a road accident last August.

materials from the CSR Hebel range for external walling and flooring, together
with Gyprock plasterboard and cornice for internal linings.
Local builder Creative Commercial Projects is providing the construction

to ensure the installation of additional disability-friendly modifications to
provide for his future recovery and care.

community. CSR Hebel Business Development Manager Commercial Manager, Wayne
Priestley committed Hebel panels for the home extension while local Hebel contractor
H&M Installers has offered their services at no charge. Priestley also partnered
with CSR Gyprock Account Manager Residential, Richard Metcalfe to supply plasterboard
