DiPrete Engineering has recently been brought on to the South Street Landing project in Providence by BETA Group Inc., a regional leader in civil and environmental engineering. DiPrete will also be working alongside CV Properties and Gilbane Building Company.

When completed, South Street Landing, formerly known as the Dynamo Building, will be home to a nursing school for both Rhode Island College and the University of Rhode Island. The Landing will also hold administration offices for Brown University.

The Landing is a great example of how DiPrete can effectively collaborate with other engineering firms to help take on a joint project.

DiPrete has been contracted by BETA Group to complete the ALTA/ACSM land title survey to demonstrate the boundaries and encumbrances affecting the property and is also working on the site’s topographic survey which features the land’s natural and man-made elements. CV Properties is behind the site’s real-estate development and Gilbane is currently working on rehabbing the building on the project’s Point Street side.

“We are thrilled to be working on the South Street Landing project and among our engineering peers at BETA,” said Bob Babcock, Land Surveying Department Manager at DiPrete. “This is a great opportunity to redevelop the historic Jewelry District and work closely with other skilled professionals in our industry.”

In addition, DiPrete is providing Professional Land Surveying support for Gilbane related to the rehabilitation of the building’s interior for the proposed nursing school.

South Street Landing is expected to be completed in spring 2017.
