Providence, RI Shawmut Design and Construction joined Wexford Science & Technology, LLC and the State of Rhode Island for a topping off ceremony of the new Wexford Innovation Complex on March 27. 

The new 195,000 s/f complex, which is being constructed on former I-195 land as the cornerstone of Providence’s Innovation and Design District, will create a hub of life science research, discovery, and entrepreneurial activity for the city and state. 

“Having worked long and hard throughout a difficult winter, we are very proud at the significant progress today’s topping off ceremony represents,” said Ron Simoneau, vice president, Shawmut Design and Construction. “The Innovation Complex is now much closer to its eventual life as an incubator for innovative ideas in the state and its capital city.” 

The $88 million project, designed by architect Ayers Saint Gross, is scheduled to be completed by June 2019 and will be anchored by Brown University’s School of Professional Studies, The Cambridge Innovation Center, and Johnson & Johnson as tenants.
