University of Rhode Island 
College of Engineering – Phase I
East Alumni Road, South Kingstown
Students in the University of Rhode Island’s College of Engineering will christen their new building at the start of the fall 2019 semester, marking the completion of a $125 million project that began in February. Phase I, funded by a bond issue, is the largest construction project in URI’s history. The 190,000-square-foot facility will house seven of the university’s eight engineering programs: biomedical, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, industrial and systems and mechanical (ocean is based at the Narragansett Bay campus), in addition to general university classrooms. Ballinger is the prime architect and engineer for the project, with associate architectural firm DBVW Architects. Dimeo Construction Co. is the construction management firm, and Odeh Engineers is the project’s structural engineering firm. The key feature of the five-floor building is its truss support system – often used in bridge designs – which eliminates the need for interior support columns. Three, 270-foot trusses create a four-story “bridge” that will house teaching laboratories, departmental offices, research laboratories and graduate student areas. Upon completion, the space will also include a new engineering quadrangle featuring an exterior patio, the university’s first student shop for around-the-clock equipment access and a robotics laboratory that will allow URI to hire additional faculty.  / COURTESY UNIVERSITY OF RHODE ISLAND
