The last couple of years have been a very special time for our campus with the D. R. Kaufman Memorial Building being constructed. In this final project post, you will see a presentation commemorating the life and legacy of Delmar R. Kaufman, a visual timeline of this project, photos from the dedication and more photos of the project as it was being completed. Thank you for following the project and supporting our ministry. We thank God for this great blessing He has given and we are trusting for His guiding Spirit and direction in the days to come. All of the honor and glory belongs to Him. Praise the Lord!

Daily noticeable change! It is an exciting time to watch as the D.R. Kaufman Memorial Building draws nearer to completion. Trim work, lighting, ventilation, coat racks, cabinets, bathroom stalls and facilities, basketball systems, and various other items have all started appearing in short order. You can see the tile flooring in the foyer is just getting underway. In the gymnasium and student lounge flooring is expected to begin in the next several days.

The campus has greatly changed over the last week! It was a special time as the first week of school got underway and it seems that everyone, at some point, was out watching the blacktop go down. It’s amazing how much the campus has changed since the D.R. Kaufman Memorial Project first begun. Thank the Lord, we are so Blessed!

There’s a lot that goes into building a new structure on a college campus! Its remarkable how much excavating that is needed for a project like this. You can see that concrete was added in front of the D.R. Kaufman Memorial Building as well as concrete bases in the parking lot for lamp poles. The Concrete walkway from the pond to past Rhoades Hall was removed and the new walkway is currently being poured – this helps with both the previously damaged concrete pads as well as squaring off the parking lot. The electric company also needed to come out and add new electric poles along Woodsdale Rd. for 3-phase power.

Over the course of the last month, much of the work that was completed was spread out over several items, namely: moving dirt and gravel, expanding the parking lot, putting in drains, digging and running piping, HVAC, electrical work, roofing and siding.

The D.R. Kaufman Memorial Building is looking better and better! You’ll notice the brick around the perimeter of the building as well as siding starting to go up. It’s also exciting to see a substantial amount of dirt and gravel being moved in preparation for the parking lot. It’s wonderful to see all the changes taking place daily. Thank the Lord for his continued blessings to us!

You can see in the pictures there are several projects that are in progress or about to start. The roofing is now underway and you can see all the many individual sheets that will need to be pieced together (in crates)! The bricks recently arrived and are ready to go around the perimeter of the building. The windows also came recently and look at how big they are! Plenty of indoor work has been in progress, such as HVAC, plumbing, electrical and woodwork and even some drywalling.

We wanted to give a better perspective this week, so we shot some 360° panoramic photos. Click or tap on the pictures to get the 360° view.

It has been another good week! It’s hard to believe that just 3 months ago only a concrete pad occupied this space. What a change! In pictures it can be a bit difficult to really understand the size of the D.R. Kaufman Memorial Building. As you approach the building in person, the closer you get the smaller you feel! It is a constant reminder that God’s got big plans for His people! It’s good to be on the Lord’s side!

The D.R. Kaufman Memorial Building is coming along nicely! Not too far in the past, our faculty and staff were praying about a building such as this. Thoughts were being formed on how to work out a financial path to eventually get to a point where construction could begin on a building; a building of a smaller magnitude than what we are seeing today. But God had bigger plans. God moved on a donor’s heart. The Lord not only answered prayer, but went much further. A building bigger than originally planned and one that wasn’t to be years in the future. What a God we serve! We are thankful that the Lord is always ready to show His love toward us and has instructed us to pray believing that He will work.

The D.R. Kaufman Memorial Building is really taking shape! Visualizing the final product with windows and doors is much easier now! When you look back, it’s incredible to see how much work has been accomplished since the first two walls were built – just 7 weeks ago. Thank the Lord for His goodness toward us!

It’s been cold, windy, rainy and snowy this week. That’s a tough week to work outside! Seeing the construction crew outside in this weather makes you all the more appreciate what they are doing! We trust the Lord will bless them for their labors!

Concrete is now poured and we have our floor! Weather had continued to delay the construction so we were very thankful to see it break long enough to reach this milestone. A lot of hands made this happen in a one day effort!
