Ground Breaking Held for New Schools in Rhode Island

A ground breaking was recently held in North Providence R.I. for two new schools that will be constructed in the district. The two schools—Olney School and Mcguire School—were recently demolished and will be replaced with grades K-5 being housed in each of the new facilities.

The new schools will offer spaces that emphasize collaborative activity, and also serve as places where the community can gather for after school events. Both buildings will also feature outdoor learning spaces that serve to enhance the lessons taught inside the classroom.

Gilbane Building Company will serve as Construction Management firm for the project, and the S/L/A/M Collaborative is handling design and planning aspects of the project. Both facilities are expected to be completed in time for the 2019-2020 school year.
