Newport Gateway Center

Newport, RI – Pare Corporation recently participate in the grand opening of the refurbished Newport Gateway Center in Newport.

The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) retained Pare to provide site and structural engineering services for this $6 million improvement project., after the intermodal transit and tourist hub suffered structural and flood damage from Hurricane Sandy in 2012.

Pare’s scope of work included the design of steel support columns for new metal-roofed canopies, ADA-accessible crosswalks, a new traffic flow pattern, permeable pavers, and a green stormwater system using five bioretention areas/rain gardens and permeable pavers.

Pare worked closely with RIPTA, Northeast Collaborative Architects, and WDA Design Group to create a resilient intermodal transit hub that honors the historic context of Colonial Newport while using advanced technology to ensure the safety of the thousands of people who utilize the facility each year.

Federal, state, and local funds were used to repair the facility and make it more resilient to future storms. The project ensures that the center is fully accessible and in compliance with federal ADA regulations. It also includes pedestrian safety and bicycle-friendly features, improved signage, a taxi waiting area, and environmentally sustainable elements to collect stormwater onsite and improve drainage.

Established in 1970, Pare Corporation operates from offices in Lincoln, R.I., and Foxboro, Mass.
