To share some of the updates and the amazing work that the construction crew has done so far, the Rhode Island FC invited some aspiring engineers and architects – high school members of the ACE Mentor Program – to tour the facility recently. During their tour, these students got to meet some leaders of the project team, discussed their responsibilities and got a firsthand look of what large-scale civil engineering projects like these entail.
