Fuss & O’Neill was initially contracted to develop a city-wide plan to holistically address stormwater pollution, with special emphasis on future design and construction of green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) that would address stormwater while adding neighborhood amenities.
In the current phase of the project, we are providing planning, design, and construction support (focused on climate resiliency and improving infrastructure) of reconstructed access to a new train station (Pawtucket Central Line Station) and a RIPTA bus station.
Additionally, we are providing demolition design, hazardous building materials assessment for asbestos and lead-based paint, and demolition and abatement project monitoring to demolish a dilapidated building in order to prepare the site as a parking lot for users of the nearby MBTA Pawtucket/Central Falls Commuter Rail Station.
We are providing design services for the GSI improvements along Pine Street in the TOD district, and including neighborhood amenities such as parklets. The project consists of incorporating GSI into the primary access to the new train station from Main Street and redesigning an existing road to provide multimodal access to these new public transit facilities. GSI has been incorporated into the design to improve neighborhood livability and attract redevelopment. Planters were designed to minimize future DPW maintenance while adding neighborhood parklets and creating multi-modal access to the new train station.
