Lorenzo Harper Onsite at his Summer Internship on the Rose Kennedy Greenway. August 2017.
At a very young age, Lorenzo Harper '18 loved to build things with his own hands. On the island of St. Kitts, where he grew up, he raised animals and would construct small sheds to house them. “I’ve always wanted to be the person that people could turn to when they needed some type of renovation or remodel,” he explains.
This summer, while on an internship at the Rose Kennedy Greenway, he and the maintenance team completely took apart The Ring Water Fountain in the park and put the granite stones back together like a big puzzle. The fountain had been leaking from underneath and Lorenzo had to use the knowledge from his Construction Management courses at BFIT to repair and reconstruct the fountain according to the engineering plan.
