RGB’s team joined the Town of North Providence for a ‘topping off’ ceremony at the Public Safety complex. Participants signed the steel beam alongside Mayor Lombardi and members of the Town’s departments, and celebrated as it was raised and put in place. Structural steel for entire project equates to one million pounds of material.

The new public safety complex is approximately 30 percent complete, with concrete masonry unit work for the exterior walls now 90% complete, and concrete footings and foundation work now 100% complete. Reinforcing steel used for this work is 115 tons of steel re-bar and 2,400 sheets of welded wire mesh. Site drainage storm trap system is complete, with a capacity of 800,000 gallons of water, storage, and filtration system.

The construction work is anticipated to be fully completed in June 2019.
