East Providence Senior Center

East Providence, Rhode Island

Housed in a repurposed 1960s elementary school, the East Providence Senior Center was in desperate need of an addition to serve its growing programs. Initial designs were prepared by another design firm and when bids came in to build their design, estimates were $900,000 over budget. Our office was initially contracted to evauluate the proposed design to see where the budget went wrong. It was quickly apparent that redesign was necessary and we prepared new drawings that incorporated the originally planned spaces as well as the addition of an exercise room. We also added a complete fire sprinkler system. The project bids came in within the budget, allowing this project to be built for the East Providence senior community. The final project cost, excluding sitework, was $150 per square foot.
