Note: While great efforts have been taken to provide accurate and complete information on the pages of CPEP, please be aware that the information contained herewith is considered a work-in-progress for this thesis project. Modifications and changes related to the original building designs and construction methodologies for this senior thesis project are solely the interpretation of Michael Dean. Changes and discrepancies in no way imply that the original design contained errors or was flawed. Differing assumptions, code references, requirements, and methodologies have been incorporated into this thesis project; therefore, investigation results may vary from the original design.

Over the past academic school year, I have gained a great deal of knowledge pertaining to the construction and design of a building. Analyzing the current system from the construction drawings to the specifications, allowed me to fully understand how the mechanical system worked within the building. This allowed for proper redesign of this building to and to convey my ideas in a reasonably through writing and graphics. The freedom on this project allowed me to really dive into a problem and figure it out completely.

 

Although this project was very vast in nature, the constant reminder of the schedule was always present. From this I gain vital prospective on how projects work, this will be very beneficial moving on in my professional career.
