Boston Building Resources inspires, educates, and empowers homeowners to increase the efficiency and value of their homes. As a local social enterprise, we focus on affordable solutions that help all of our neighbors create stronger communities while benefiting the environment.
Boston Building Resources is a name that encompasses two related social enterprises located at 100 Terrace Street in Boston’s Roxbury Crossing neighborhood.
The first is a consumer co-op, or a store owned by and operated for its members. The co-op was founded in 1978 under the name Boston Building Materials Co-op. It provides new materials for home improvement with a special focus on kitchen cabinetry, windows, doors, energy-saving products, and green products. Anyone can join, and you can also shop without joining. Being a co-op means that we are not in business to maximize profits, but to benefit our members.
BBR provides high-value, affordable materials, both new and used, for home maintenance and improvements. But beyond simply buying products, customers can find expert advice, technical assistance, and hands-on workshops that teach home improvement skills.
