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.

“Franklin did a lot for me, so it’s always been a dream of mine to come back.”

With professional experience from some of the most famous Boston construction projects of our time, Leslie Tuplin ‘80 returned to BFIT in January 2017 as a professor to teach Construction Surveying.

Tuplin first enrolled at the Franklin Technical Institute right after graduating from high school in the late 1970s and obtained her associate degree in Architectural Engineering Technology. “I felt like I needed hands-on work,” she said. “I loved the one-on-one availability of professors at the college when I was a student.” And today her students experience the same in her classroom. Even when there is no class in session, Tuplin opens the Construction Management lab for students to talk with her, do homework or just to sit and reflect.
