Rhode Island is the smallest state in the US. There is a certain reason behind the state being called an island. Resembling the earth, the total area occupied by water in and around the state stands at 30%!  Though it is not completely floating, it has a large number of water bodies in and around the region hence the title of ‘island’. Population wise too, it is one of the lower ranked states in the US with a total population of only 1.07 million. It is one of the states which were occupied by the British for a fairly long time and hence the state is in the region which is commonly known as the New England region.

Most of the construction work that is carried out in the island state is mostly to tap water and derive energy from it. Though Rhode Island is not the single largest supplier of hydro-electricity, it is one of the major producers of the same. Thrust on infrastructure is especially on such areas where it is to benefit the masses. There are strict laws governing the state which forbid excessive urbanization fearing the loss of an important biodiversity region.

Major Infrastructural Thrust Areas in Rhode Island

Providence is the capital city as well as the largest urban conglomerates in the state. The early 20th century saw growth of the region at fast speeds which unusually slowed down in the later half. The 21st century saw its growth again, with Providence becoming one of the most important trade centers of central-west America. Its economy thrives on plantation (it was also the main occupation of the natives when under the colonial rule). The result of rampant urbanization was seen in the recent floods after which the state government imposed stringent construction laws in the region.

Construction in Rhode Island is carried out very systematically with special emphasis given to areas that could act as good water absorbers. Rhode Island receives a fair share of precipitation, thanks to its humid continental type climate and proximity to water bodies. Without adequate land left for rain water to be absorbed naturally, the problem of floods seem imminent. The construction department(s) has realized the need of proper sewerage and drainage and thus the main civil work is regarding these issues – to keep the state away from any further natural destruction.

If you want a construction job or work in Rhode Island, you will first have to get hold of a good attorney or even a lawyer who in turn will give you details on law and legislation covering the island state. What’s more, to construct in an urban setting, you need to have special permission and necessary environmental clearances before taking a step forward. Environmental clearances are particularly difficult to request for as the EPA plays a major role in controlling the construction in and around Rhode Island. Land and property taxes in Rhode Island are one of the highest in the country and that should make you analyze further before investing in huge construction projects.
