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 Tyler Smith. 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 the thesis project; therefore, investigation results may vary from the original design.

Thesis Presentation


The final thesis presentation was given on the afternoon of Monday, April 14, 2008, in room 306 Engineering Unit C, also known as the Immersive Construction (ICon) Lab. Attendees included a three-person jury of the current Construction Management faculty members and a number of fellow Architectural Engineering classmates.

The presentation was done in a three-screen side-by-side format, with the left screen displaying the presentation outline, the right screen giving a brief overview of the building statistics, and the middle screen containing the information at hand. The slide template was personally designed using a combination of Microsoft Paint and Adobe Photoshop CS3.

The theme of the presentation was based around maintaining a safe and functional building environment. The analyses presented in depth were the building envelope investigation, infection control measures, and the implementation of the ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) system.
