Nathan Bishop Middle School Renovations
Providence, RI

As a member of a multi-discipline project team, Pare was involved in several aspects of the renovations to an existing middle school originally built in 1929.  The project included renovations to the existing brick masonry and concrete structure, utility improvements, landscaping, and the replacement of site features such as concrete walks, a bituminous concrete drive, and granite steps.  A portion of the third floor was demolished to provide an open, two-story library space. 

Pare provided civil and structural engineering services, including coordination of survey and landscape architect subconsultants, development submissions to the City and the Narragansett Bay Commission (sewer provider), structural building modifications, redesign of utility connections, and stormwater management design.

Pare completed a traffic impact study and made recommendations to improve safety and traffic flow in the area.  The project included the redevelopment of walkways and access drives on the site, including a new site entrance on the north side of the building.  PARE also provided plans for re-routing of drainage and utility lines around the site.
