Daniel McGee is in his 5th year of the Architectural Engineering program at The Pennsylvania State University, focusing his studies on building mechanical systems.  He will graduate with an Integrated B.A.E / M.A.E in May 2013 with honors in Architectural Engineering through the Schreyer Honors College.  Daniel also received a minor in Architectural Studies while studying abroad in Rome, Italy during the summer of 2010.

Daniel has completed two summer internships related to the construction industry.  During the summer of 2012, Daniel interned with SmithGroupJJR in their Washington, D.C. office.  While employed with SmithGroupJJR, he worked in the healthcare studio, aiding the design team with energy modeling, HVAC design, LEED documentation, and BIM implementation.  During the summer of 2011, Daniel interned with the Lane Construction Corporation in Chesire, CT, where he worked with the estimating team on preparing bids for four large public contracts.

Daniel is excited to be part of the UNITUS design team, fulfilling his capstone project requirement in the BIM/IPD option.  In the Spring 2012 semester, he participated in the BIM/IPD architectural studio, an AIA award winning course.  Daniel is also conducting a separate honors thesis on district energy systems advised by Dr. William Bahnfleth, which he will research concurrently with the team capstone project during his 5th year.

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‐inprogress 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 the UNITUS design team. 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.

The Capstone Project Electronic Portfolio (CPEP) is a web‐based project and information center. It contains material produced for a year‐long Senior Thesis class. Its purpose, in addition to providing central storage of individual assignments, is to foster communication and collaboration between student, faculty consultant, course instructors, and industry consultants. This website is dedicated to the research and analysis conducted via guidelines provided by the Department of Architectural Engineering.
