St. Vincent de Paul of Baltimore | Beans and Bread Center Addition & Restoration
Lewis Contractors provided preconstruction services, inclusive of forensic work, for this comprehensive renovation and expansion project. Beans and Bread is a non-profit center in historic Fells Point dedicated to providing for Baltimore’s homeless and disadvantaged. The project involved a complete interior renovation, expansion and the restoration of the historic building’s exterior façade. The project more than doubled the facility space and added critical services for people experiencing hunger, homelessness and poverty. New showers, laundry services and a new employment resource area were provided. The new facility allows Beans and Bread to bring the meal service line indoors, improve access for people with disabilities, provide adequate and appropriate office space for staff and partner agencies to better engage clients, and accommodate the growing Home Connections permanent housing program.
