Construction Tour Follow-up

29 Aug

Yesterday was the EPC tour of the Providence G with Eric Army, AIA of Studio Meja. Eric took us around and through the whole project to highlight some of the more interesting details the project team had to work through including the hand crafted replacement windows and the granite from a 90 year old quarry to infill missing parts of the Providence Gas Company floor. Here are a few pictures to recap!

Don’t forget to join us for the next EPC Construction Tour of the RISD ISB on Sept.11. Click HERE for more info.

Construction Tour Follow-up

29 Jul Exterior-AFTER

In April the EPC toured the Johnson & Wales Centennial House construction site about half way to completion. The project, by Ed Wojcik Architect, is now complete! Below, check out before and after shots comparing the state of the project when we toured, to the finished product.

The project was a “semi-gut” renovation as explained by the Contractor. Some walls were kept, others were completely re-arranged. Dining room under construction


The communal dining room can be arranged into small table groups, or one large banquet-style set up.

Upstairs there are single and double dorm rooms for the students to be part of this communal living house.

The exterior of the Centennial House was repaired, and the landscaping was revitalized to bring life back to the street-scape near the Harbor Side Campus.
