RGB welcomes back Fred Love, AIA. Fred started with RGB in 1982 and was a clear powerhouse in Historic and Forensic Architecture.
Fred has been committed to historic preservation for nearly forty years and has worked on impactful projects including Franklin Court in Philadelphia for the National Park Service; The Rhode Island Supreme Court Building for the Public Building Authority; and Manchester Street Power Plant for Bechtel Corporation. Another prominent structure that Fred undertook as a two-phased renovation was Providence City Hall.
Fred provides a knowledgeable, historic perspective to projects bolstering RGB’s already solid reputation in historic preservation. He worked to restore Pawtucket’s Slater Park Carousel in 1978 through a Federal Grant in Aid project, and this year he worked with RGB to again assess the historic site’s condition. Mr. Love noted about the project, “It’s phenomenal to work with RGB again while continuing to pursue my passion for historic preservation. I’m encouraged to preserve historic assets, like the Slater Park Carousel, for another generation.” Fred is also currently working at 48 Weybosset Street, in Providence, Rhode Island, the original building that housed Bank of North America.
RGB Managing Principal David DeQuattro said, “Fred brings RGB further depth in addressing the wide range of needs in historic preservation and restoration. It’s no secret that many historic buildings get mistreated, often by simple ignorance or neglect. I can say for certain that in New England, historic buildings will always be with us. Training a new group of young architects to appropriately address historic materials and architectural details will be important to preserving these structures over the long term. I’m so glad to work with Fred again; he was influential to me in the early days of my architectural career. He provides important mentorship and guidance to all of our staff with respect to historic architecture.”
