DiPrete Engineering to complete construction of 90,000 s/f project

April 14, 2017 - Rhode Island
East Providence, RI Michael Integlia & Company had broken ground on University Orthopedics’ new home at Kettle Point. The 90,000 s/f medical center is one of the first buildings on the Kettle Point property.

The firm teamed up with NEMD Architects, Inc. and DiPrete Engineering, who together completed the necessary permitting for the construction of the building. The site has been designed to accommodate the new 4-story building, 395 parking spaces, drainage, and other infrastructure improvements.

“The construction of this state-of-the-art facility and additional 290 residential units, which consists of apartments and town homes, will add to the economic growth and development in the City of East Providence,” said David Russo, project manager at DiPrete Engineering.

Located off Veterans Memorial Parkway and bordered by the East Bay Bike Path and the Providence River, the new and improved facility will allow University Orthopedics to provide the highest quality orthopedic care.

DiPrete Engineering has received all necessary project permits through the City of East Providence, the Waterfront District Commission, the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management, the Rhode Island Department of Transportation, and the Coastal Resources Management Council.

Moving forward, a network of paths, parks and a public parking area for the East Bay Bike Path will be provided for both Kettle Point residents and tenants.

“We’re looking forward to seeing the final product of this development as the beginning of future development along the East Providence waterfront,” said Russo.

EW Burman is the general contractor for the facility, and construction is expected to be complete later this year.
