User 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 David Geiger. Changes and descrepancies 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.



Thesis Research

The following sources were used throughout the duration of the second semester. Architectural Acoustics and Noise Control in Buildings were used for the acoustics breadth study, providing noise transmission levels and losses of various machines and materials. ASCE 7-05 was used for building codes. The Steel Manual and Unified Design of Steel Structures was used for steel design. Steel Design 3 was used when exploring camber and R.S. Means was used to get information for the cost and schedule analysis of the construction management breadth.
