South Coast Improvement Company (SCI), a design-build general contractor serving New England and the Mid-Atlantic states, recently began work on a $3 million addition to the YWCA Southeastern Mass, located at 20 6th Street, New Bedford, Mass.
The addition will add 6500 square feet to the property, which will be used for after-school child care and supportive women’s housing programs.
After a groundbreaking ceremony on April 28, work on the project began on Monday, May 8. The anticipated completion date is January 2019.
“These are very exciting times on the waterfront in New Bedford,” said Tom Quinlan, president of South Coast Improvement Company. “We’re delighted to be working on this important project at the YWCA and proud to be a contributor to other projects that are revitalizing the waterfront area.”
South Coast Improvement completed a renovation/buildout for the Moby Dick Brewing Company at 16 South Water Street in 2017. SCI was also the general contractor on a renovation project for the Waterfront Historic Area League (WHALE)–The Co-Creative Center on Union Street, which opened in March. An additional South Coast Improvement project, the renovation of the former Standard-Times office building into a Renaissance Hotel, is currently under construction at 218-226 Union Street.
