Pare Corporation - Celebrating 50 Years


Pare Corporation continues to adapt our operations in response to the disruptions caused by COVID-19.  As an “essential business” providing engineering support to public infrastructure and facilities, we have put safety measures in place and all Pare staff are fully employed - many working remotely using secure systems to ensure confidentiality and data integrity.  Project managers are available by phone, e-mail, and videoconferencing. Field staff are in close communication with office staff, and are following safety protocols at job sites.  I am proud of the way Pare employees are actively supporting municipalities, state agencies and businesses as they adjust to this pandemic.  Be assured that Pare will continue to serve clients and communities with expertise and integrity in spite of these uncertain times.

From all of us at Pare Corporation, best wishes for your health and safety.

Larry Riggs, President and CEO

Featured Project
Improvements to Old Tower Hill Road

Pare completed design improvements to 0.42 miles of Old Tower Hill Road in South Kingstown for the Rhode Island Department of Transportation.  Pare used “Complete Streets” design standards to make safety improvements, add buffered bike lanes, widen sidewalks for ADA compliance, and install landscaping enhancements to divide the center turn lane. The installation of 18 new curb bioretention planters, designed in accordance with the RIDOT Linear Stormwater Manual, were a significant component of the project.  These will reduce pollution discharge to downstream waterways and resources by treating the water quality volume from the ‘first flush’ of roadway runoff.  This $3.9M project -- which finished on budget and one month ahead of schedule -- was completed in September 2020.

Moderna Clinical Development Manufacturing Facility

Pare was recognized with a Bronze Award for Outstanding Professional Design Excellence from the American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) for the structural assessment and design of the Moderna Clinical Development Manufacturing Facility in Norwood, MA.  For this $130M project, Pare performed extensive field inspections/assessments of a 200,000-SF mothballed Polaroid manufacturing plant to determine the existing building’s structural capacity and developed a 3D REVIT model in order to gut and retrofit the building. Pare then designed an independent structural system that extends through the building to new foundations.  This system supports six Pare-designed rooftop platforms totaling 33,000 SF and supporting 26 air handling units weighing a total of 270 tons.  Read more here
