This proposal explains the work to be completed for AE 482 in the spring semester of 2009.  The alterations to be considered are breadths in architecture and acoustics, and depths in lighting and electrical systems.  The lighting depth will cover five spaces which will be redesigned.  These spaces include the student lounge, conference room, cafeteria serving space, third floor roof deck and typical dorm room.  The electrical depth will redesign the panelboards for the 5 spaces where the lighting will be redesigned, complete a protective device coordination study, analyze the feasibility of changing the lighting from 120V to 277V and complete an analysis of the electrical system including a short circuit analysis, protective device coordination and arc fault study.  The architecture breadth will comprise of redesigning the glazing on the first floor of the building to provide better daylight control.  The acoustical breadth will be comprised of a reverberation and STC analysis for the lounge on the first floor.  After analyzing the space I will consider changing the materials based on the results.
