Dimeo Construction Company recently completed the Arthur F. & Patricia Ryan Center for Business Studies at Providence College.
This project includes the 33,084 gsf renovation of Dore Hall, and a new addition of 42,489 gsf. The existing Dore Hall will house all faculty offices, faculty lounge, dean and administrative suites, conference rooms, student breakout rooms, undergraduate and graduate student spaces and café. The two-story curved classroom addition is a steel structure with a metal, masonry, precast and glass exterior. The first level of the addition houses a 125-seat tiered lecture hall, a 32-seat tiered classroom, two 50-seat information/data labs, two breakout rooms, public rest rooms, building entry and lounge. The second level of the classroom addition houses four 50-seat active learning classrooms, a 30-seat active learning classroom, a quiet lounge, and public rest rooms.
Project scope included exterior and selective interior demolition, landscape, site/civil, and parking improvements associated with the building. The site between the new Huxley Gate and the project was phased to accommodate construction lay down areas, interim parking, and the final site improvements.
Dimeo has partnered with Providence College since the late 1960’s with the construction of Phillips Memorial Library. This is Dimeo’s 4th major project on the Providence College campus.
