LifeSpan Design Team

As the sixth project for Women & Infants’, Dimeo served as Construction Manager to turn a structure in Providence’s Jewelry District, purchased from the Kilguss family, into their new research institute. This acquisition will allow the opportunity for new research in HIV and tuberculosis, breast and cervical cancers, and fertility problems and to develop promising new advances in biomedical research. The building features a central core that houses cell culture facilities, darkrooms, a vivarium, and other resources that are shared by all of the researchers, whose labs ring the perimeter. This design will allow a sharing of ideas and collaboration with other disciplines.
