Rhode Island College Paul V. Sherlock Center
The project consisted of renovating an unoccupied, 11,350 SF, two-story structure that was previously part of the Rhode Island State Home and School into the new Paul V. Sherlock Center on Disabilities, whose mission is to promote community membership of disabled individuals in school, work, and society.
The program included a resource library, training center, conference rooms, and offices. Working within the existing topography, site context, a tight budget, and a new parking lot, 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.
