Dimeo Construction Company is underway with the Providence College Ruane Friar Development Center in Providence, RI. A new gift from former Providence College Board of Trustees Chair Michael A. Ruane ’71 & ’13 Hon. and his wife, Elizabeth Ruane, enabled the construction of the Ruane Friar Development Center. The new basketball training facility, designed by Perkins & Eastman, will significantly enhance Friar athletics on a national level, student services, and College community life. Phase I of the project will concentrate on the men’s basketball, athletic training center, athlete support services, offices, a new Friar Athletics Hall of Fame, and a dining room. It will promote academic success, team-building, skills development, conditioning, and wellness.
