historical preservation and targeting LEED certification

Gilbane provided preconstruction and construction management at-risk services for the construction of the core and shell and garage of the South Street Landing building in downtown Providence, formerly known as Dynamo House, originally constructed in 1918. Additionally, Gilbane served as construction manager for various projects within the former South Street Power Station, including a fit-out for the University of Rhode Island and Rhode Island College Nursing Education Center and a tenant improvement project for Brown University.

The 131,000 SF, state-of-the-art Nursing Education Center is located on the first, second, and areas of the third floor within the building, while academic and office space for Brown University, totaling 135,000 SF, are housed on the third floor and fourth floors. The project included lead remediation as well as steel and masonry modifications and repairs and the installation of new exterior windows and roofing. Two vertical stories have also been added to the existing structure as well as all new MEP systems throughout the facility.  Additionally, a 753-space parking garage totaling 241,000 SF was constructed on land leased from NGRID adjacent to South Street Landing along Eddy Street.

The project team worked to preserve historic features of the original power station including the large, 50-ton gantry crane and the Dynamo concrete pedestal. The project was designed to meet LEED sustainability standards.
