RIPTA Newport Gateway Center

Newport, RI

This project involved providing cost estimating services to DHK Architects for conceptual budget exercise on a renovated the Bus Terminal in Newport, Rhode Island.

DHK Architects had been commissioned to provide improvements to the existing bus facility in Newport, along America’s Cup Avenue. New steel canopies and shelters were required, as well as improved drainage systems and repaved driveways and access roads. Associated landscaping and electrical services, including lighting, power, way-finding signage, and internet connectivity were part of the design.

Eight options were initially presented, which were pared to four to submit to the client for review. The project is currently in the schematic design phase.
