Serving the Eastern United States for 48 Years!

Welcome to Pare Corporation.

As a multidisciplinary firm of engineers, planners, environmental and wetland scientists, GIS specialists, and regulatory permitting specialists, our clients depend on us to help them work through the anxieties of the design and permitting process while sharing their sense of urgency.

In addition to the traditional engineering and planning projects you would expect to find as you look through these pages (roads, bridges, site design, infrastructure), you will find projects and experience featuring sustainable and low-impact development, smart growth planning, and LEED documentation for “Green” building certification.

Pare has been serving the needs of public and private clients throughout New England and the Eastern United States for almost five decades.

We're ready to serve you.

Featured Project
Southern Sky Renewable Energy Solar Array

Recycling takes on a whole new meaning when a former landfill is converted to a solar farm.  Pare assisted Southern Sky Renewable with the conversion of 12 acres of contaminated land on a capped landfill into a site that will generate clean, renewable energy for the Town of North Providence.  Pare repaired the landfill cap, provided civil engineering design, and completed permitting for this green project.  The Town’s new 2.6MW solar farm will produce enough electricity to power all of the municipal buildings in North Providence. Click here to learn more about the project.

This is the fourth solar array in Rhode Island that Pare has helped to develop. The others are on Kilvert Street, Warwick, RI (6.0 ± MW); West Shore Road, Warwick, RI (1.0 ± MW); and Quality Drive, Lincoln, RI (1.4 ± MW).

Based on the location, Pare provided a range of services including:

  • Coordination of existing condition surveys and development of plans.
  • Site design including layout, grading, and utilities.
  • Permitting with RIDEM Freshwater Wetlands and the Office of Waste Management.
  • Landfill engineering services.
  • Hydrologic and hydraulic modeling and reports.
  • Stormwater management design and reports.
  • Pre-application, Master, Preliminary, and Final Plan permitting with cities and towns.
  • Coordination for local, state, and federal permits.

To learn more about bringing a solar array into your community, please contact David Potter, P.E.

The new $25 million, 47,000-SF, three-story structure along the Newport waterfront has an anticipated opening in the summer of 2020. 

Pare’s scope of services included geotechnical engineering, traffic studies, and full site/civil design including green infrastructure drainage. Pare also provided extensive environmental permitting to comply with the City of Newport Zoning and Planning Boards, RI Department of Environmental Management, Coastal Resources Management Council, US Army Corp of Engineers, and the RI Department of Transportation. 

Site work will include the demolition of a two-story building, upgrading the utility systems, converting a boat ramp into a stormwater bio-retention facility, improving on-site parking & traffic circulation, and providing public access along the waterfront. Click here to read more about the project.
