Angela Fante, PE, LEED AP provides an in-depth look into the engineering achievements of the University of Rhode Island Fascitelli Center for Advanced Engineering in the January 2022 edition of Modern Steel Construction.
Engineering is rooted in practicality and principles, but its promise is transformational and inspiring.
This was the mindset of University of Rhode Island’s College of Engineering Dean Raymond Wright when it came to the school’s new Fascitelli Center for Advanced Engineering. The project represents Wright’s ambitious mission to create a “transformational building that fosters a vibrant and innovative environment by attracting the best faculty, students, and industry partners.”
Constructed on the former site of five demolished engineering buildings on the university’s main South Kingstown campus, the new engineering building serves as a “bridge” between the liberal arts programs at campus south and the basic sciences at campus north.
