Rhode Island Hospital’s new hybrid operating room will provide surgeons and physicians with the most advanced surgical innovations and imaging equipment for a variety of cardiovascular and vascular procedures in one sophisticated location. The operating room is planned to increase patient safety, decrease procedure times, and eliminate patient transfers to imaging rooms before and after surgery. The new operating room is expected to facilitate quality outcomes as surgeons now have the ability to verify their procedures live during an operation, as well as have hybrid equipment that can communicate with other systems.  This surgical theatre will profoundly impact patient experience, staff satisfaction, and overall delivery of care.

Project challenges included working above an active emergency room and adjacent to live operating rooms.   Construction was accomplished with minimal interruption to the hospital’s operations and was on schedule.  The project illustrates TRAC's ability to perform complicated and highly technical work in occupied and sensitive spaces, adding to our ongoing healthcare experience.

TRAC was hired to complete renovations to Brown University’s Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice located at 94 Waterman Street, Providence.  Built in 1860 and formerly an Alumnae Hall, TRAC working with LLB Architects completely remodeled the interior of the building into a gallery space and research center.  The first floor includes a glass wall art piece titled “Rising to Freedom” that depicts movement from slavery to forms of freedom through a series of iconic images.  The additional gallery space will display both research and art. Outside the building, a garden designed by Geri Augusto features a stone cosmogram, a stone bench of contemplation, a bottle tree and a grassy flowered terrace.
