2008 RHODE ISLAND CHAPTER OF THE ASSOCIATED GENERAL
CONTRACTORS | MERIT AWARD
Situated in the Capitol Center in downtown Providence, the
center establishes a strong contemporary presence and stands in contrast to the brick-faced buildings erected in earlier decades.
Expressive and symbolic of the 21st century innovation and values of this global technology company, the development has been transformative, reclaiming a former rail yard district.
The mixed-use structure is a gateway landmark and emphasizes the qualities of urban spaces, from the scale of the building to the human interaction at its edges.
Four distinguished facades respond uniquely to their surroundings in a clearly defined urban collage, bound together on a multi-story podium.
The Center is a striking landmark, fulfilling the project’s goals while establishing itself as the next step in GTECH and Providence’s mutual evolution.
