Providence, RI – Dimeo Construction Company recently held a topping-off ceremony at the Providence College, Ruane Friar Development Center project. The new basketball training facility, designed by Perkins & Eastman, will significantly enhance Friar athletics on a national level, student services, and college community life.
Phase 1 of the project will concentrate on the men’s basketball, athletic training center, athlete support services, offices, a new Friar Athletics Hall of Fame, and a dining room. It will promote academic success, team-building, skills development, conditioning, and wellness.
“Today is a major milestone in this campus transforming project. The sloped structural steel beams that provide the roof over the court add a unique geometry to the campus and will help usher the school into its next centennial,” stated Dimeo senior project manager Scott Eaton.
