Update: Dartmouth Building Project

Architecture and Design

Wessling Architects has provided leadership and coordination of final work by our engineers. The Wessling team also created a rendering of the new facility to help us envision what the building will look like when completed.

Site Work

Brian Barry and his staff at Atlantic Earthworks in Norwell built a stabilized construction entrance, installed erosion control, cleared the site, stripped the topsoil, excavated the foundation, and built the retention basin.

Foundation and Footings

To strengthen our ties to the South Coast business community, we’re using local vendors as much as possible. Rebar was provided by Whaling City Iron Co. in New Bedford. The footings and foundation were installed by P&D Concrete Construction in Assonet using 275 cubic yards of concrete purchased from L&S Industries in New Bedford.

Pre-Engineered Steel Building

The steel was delivered by Barnes Building in mid-October and erection began on November 14th. Installation will take approximately 6-8 weeks. Weather permitting, the building should be closed in by the end of December or mid-January allowing interior work to continue during winter.

On September 15th, we held a joyous Groundbreaking Ceremony attended by 175 volunteers and supporters.

Jim Orcutt, as co-founder, offered remarks on how gratifying it is for he and Terry to see the mission of My Brother’s Keeper grow and touch more lives in Christ’s name— both those we serve and those who serve with us.

Erich Miller, president, provided details on the construction project and thanked the many supporters who have made this historic effort possible.

Josh Smith, director of the Dartmouth facility, talked about the future impact of the facility when completed: we will be able to launch Food and Christmas Assistance Programs on the South Coast and deliveries there will triple within 3 years.

Most importantly, Deacon Brian Kean, co-chair of the Capital Campaign Committee, blessed the land and consecrated it for service to the poor in Christ’s name.

Fundraising for the new facility continues to be strong: $2,000,000 has been raised towards the total project cost of $3,400,000— 60% of our goal. If you have not already done so, please consider making your gift today. Multi-year pledges are welcomed and deeply appreciated.

A suggestion: Ask yourselves this question.
"Am I my brother's keeper?" If the answer is Yes, perhaps you would like to join us, as we go Along the Way in spreading the Love and Hope of Jesus Christ.
