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 Erica Craig. 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.



Thank you for sharing interest in my Senior Thesis project. I would like to thank Alexander Building Construction, LLC and the Penn State Architectural Engineering Department for all their help and support in this year long endeavor.

Senior Thesis is a project oriented, two course sequence that provides a comprehensive learning experience for Penn State Architectural Engineering students using actual buildings and typical industry design and construction contraints. Students must maintain a comprehensive captone project electronic portfolio (CPEP) or their work on the e-studio site. At the end of each year, Senior Thesis students are required to provide a detailed written summary report and present their work to a faculty jury. From these presentation, a select group of students are chosen by the faculty to represent their class by presenting their thesis projects to an invited Awards Jury of industry representatives from all over the country.
