team build days

The ultimate team-building experience!


what is a Habitat Team Build?

Habitat Team Build Days are ideal for groups who are looking to give back to the community in a meaningful way, while learning new skills. We invite participants of all skill levels and abilities to join us on our build sites, no construction experience or gear required. We take care of it all, from registration to tool belts so you can enjoy memorable building day while making a real difference in the lives of hard-working, low-income Habitat Partner families.

The 2024 team build day season runs from May 7th to Nov 1st and we can accommodate teams of 10 to 50 people with customizable programs to meet your employee engagement and team building objectives.

Participants get the opportunity to work in collaborative groups to complete building tasks and accomplish something meaningful for their community.


safety first

Your team’s safety is our priority! All participants are required to complete online safety training and attend the morning safety talk at the build site. Our Habitat Manitoba staff and volunteers will ensure that you are safe throughout the day. All participants are suited up with safety gear, trained, and coached through a variety of construction tasks, all while having fun.

You can look forward to a productive and exciting day on the build site.

Team Build Testimonials


“Arctic Glacier has been participating in the Team Building program for four years and each year the event generates an excitement and energy in our office – along with an extended waiting list of volunteers.  Our employees look forward to supporting a great cause, working with the skilled team at Habitat and helping making a difference for the lives of Manitoba families – all while having a great time.  Arctic and our employees is committed to continuing our involvement and partnership with Habitat for years to come!”

– Arctic Glacier

“Giving back and making a positive difference in the communities where Enterprise employees live and work is part of our culture. In fact, one of our founding values is, “We strengthen our communities, one neighborhood at time.” It’s because of organizations like Habitat for Humanity that we are able to exemplify this value and support our community in so many impactful ways.
“Employees are encouraged to get involved in their communities in any way they choose, and so many times, our employees choose to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity. They tell us that being a part of the building process provides a unique experience that allows them to see firsthand the gratitude of soon-to-be homeowners”.


– Enterprise

“As an organization, participating in the Team Building program is about improving our community, supporting families, and spending the day with our colleagues in an entirely different environment. For Emergent, it is an annual event that has a quick volunteer sign-up and is so rewarding to all of us, and it pays back ten-fold in our team culture. Amazing what each set of hands can do to make a difference”.

– Emergent Biosolutions
