Construction of the new Citizens Bank Corporate Campus located off of Greenville Avenue in northern Johnston, RI is moving along smoothly. The pace at which this project was conceived, designed, and permitted has been set on a very fast-track involving almost every aspect of engineering and a significant amount of regulatory permits in a short amount of time.
The site/civil project team led by DiPrete Engineering includes Pare Corporation (offsite utilities and geotechnical) and Beta Group (traffic and highway) in collaboration with Elkus Manfredi Architects, CRJA-IBI Group, and supported by GZA GeoEnvironmental, BR + A, and McNamara Salvia. Cushman and Wakefield is representing Citizens as the owner’s project manager, Premier Development is responsible for site work, Dimeo Construction Company is completing the building, and DiGregorio Corporationis handling the site work. DiPrete obtained permits from RIDEM, RIDOT and the Town of Johnston.
The campus is designed to foster collaboration among colleagues, create an excellent experience for their customers, and become a special place for the community. The 123-acre site will include a number of sporting facilities that will be open to the public, including a baseball field where local Little League teams will play, a soccer field, a beach volleyball court, two basketball courts, a tennis court and two bocce courts.
The bank’s headquarters will remain in downtown Providence. Citizens has about 5,300 total employees in Rhode Island, including workers at branch locations.
