Rhode Island College Paul Sherlock Center on Disabilities
Providence, Rhode Island
The project consisted of renovating an unoccupied 11,350 square foot, two-story structure that was previously part of the Rhode Island State Home and School into the new Paul V. Sherlock Center on Disabilities. The mission of the Center is to promote community membership of disabled individuals in school, work, and society. The building program consisted of a resource library, training center, conference rooms, and offices. Working within the existing topography and site context, a 900 square foot addition was constructed to incorporate a new entry, lobby, elevator and egress stair. The $3.3 million project, which was completed in July 2009, also includes an expanded parking area.
