Rhode Island Veteran’s Home in Bristol, R.I.

Bristol, RI – Pare Corporation announced the recent completion of the Rhode Island Veterans Home in Bristol. The ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on November 11, 2017 to coincide with Veteran’s Day.

The $121-million Veterans Home, which includes 260,000sf of new building construction and required approximately 45 acres of sitework, is a worthy tribute to Rhode Island’s veterans and will provide a comfortable and nurturing environment to those who have sacrificed so much on behalf of the nation. The new facility includes 208 private bedrooms subdivided into “neighborhoods,” kitchenette common areas, and recreational spaces for residents. There is also a two-story “commons” community center, which includes a main dining room, a library, a barber shop, a bank, administrative offices, and healthcare offices.

Pare was responsible for site/civil and geotechnical engineering, wetlands and traffic permitting, and construction-phase services. The scope of work included schematic site planning, stormwater management design, water and sewer connection design, final site design, construction documents, and construction observation.

Historic tower in new location on RIVH campus

An important component of the project was moving a historic 60-foot-tall water tower 807 feet to a new location near the entrance to the facility. The water tower resembles a lighthouse and was built in the 1890s as part of the original facility to serve veterans of the Civil War. This historic structure will now remind visitors of the history of the site as they enter the new state-of-the-art facility.
