General Contractor: Completion of New Construction


In June 2004 the Rhode Island Credit Union, on recommendation of the surety, hired Lusi Construction to complete the construction of a new main facility. The Credit Union's new headquarters and main branch is located directly across Francis Street from the renowned Rhode Island State Capital. The building's design responds to this prominent site by combining classical elements such as columns and cornices with modern materials. The structure is clad in Indiana limestone and large areas of glass, and is sheltered by a lead-coated copper elliptical crowned roof. The landscape, designed by Diane C. Soule & Associates of Smithfield, makes innovative use of pattern-stamped asphalt and allows unobstructed views of the State House and downtown Providence.
