The Moses Brown School
The Moses Brown School in Providence, Rhode Island was recently upgraded with over 40,000 sq. ft. of major renovations and additions. Two three-story wings of the nearly two-century old structure were completely gutted and reframed, while leaving the facade of the historic buildings intact. This renovation work brings the structures up to-date, including meeting seismic and hurricane wind provisions of the modern building code.
A new music wing was designed complete with a performance space. This addition was designed with composite concrete and steel floor framing and steel columns supported on reinforced concrete footings. The mansard roof, designed to match and complement the existing architecture, was accomplished with structural steel framing and light gage steel members.
Ryan Preston was the project engineer for the additions and renovations while with the DiSalvo Ericson Group.
