This section of the thesis project analyzes key features of the Emory Psychology Building that affect project execution. The contents include a detailed project schedule, three site layout plans, a detailed structural systems estimate, general conditions estimate, as well as a summary of critical industry issues discussed at the 17th annual PACE Roundtable event.
