Providence College’s infrastructure renewal project will replace one of the two main steam and condensate pipe legs that have deteriorated and reached a point beyond repair. The pipes serve the center of the campus, including ten buildings. Over 700 feet of 12” underground steam piping and 700 feet of 5” underground condensate piping will be installed.
The project has been broken into two phases, enabling work to be carried out simultaneously so that the campus remains up and running. The first phase is underway and includes the initial connection point of the boiler plant to the connection near Raymond Dining Hall. The second phase will begin after the college commencement and will include the remainder of the piping from the Raymond Dining Hall to the Feinstein Academic Center.
