Rhode Island Veterans Home
Bristol, RI

Pare provided the site/civil and geotechnical engineering, wetlands and traffic permitting, and construction-phase services for the new $121-million Veterans Home, comprised of approximately 45 acres of site work and 260,000 square feet of new building construction.  The new facility includes 208 private bedrooms subdivided into “neighborhoods,” kitchenette common areas, and recreational spaces for residents. There is also a “Commons” community center, which includes a main dining room, library, a barber shop, a bank, administrative offices, and healthcare offices.

An important component of the project was moving the historic 60-foot tall water tower 807 feet to a new location near the entrance of the facility.  The water tower, which resembles a lighthouse, was built in the 1890s as part of the original facility to serve veterans of the Civil War.  This historic structure will now remind visitors of the history of the site as they enter this new state-of-the-art facility.
