The West End KI Recovery Project -Workers Accommodation project is a BIZ Rebuild initiative that will house the workers needed to rebuild the many businesses after the devastating Black Summer bush fires on Kangaroo Island.

The Project and we as the proponents have much to be thankful for the input of the WSP team.

With Jen McDonnell acting probono as Project Manager/facilitator for a period of some eight months ensuring all communication and meetings produced the outcomes needed, the project has been able to go from an initial concept to actual buildings. Jen’s behind the scenes team of Stacie Reeves, Jodie McPhee and Joanne Chong all contributed to this extremely worthwhile bushfire recovery project.

Jen has been ever willing to provide direction and seek clarification for us when we needed it and her can do attitude made working under difficult circumstances such as COVID much more productive and enjoyable.

The community of the western end of Kangaroo Island is indebted to Jen and her colleagues and the wider WSP organisation.
