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 Shawn Pepple. 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.


Shawn Pepple is currently attending The Pennsylvania State University and majoring in Architectural Engineering. Shawn is in his 5th and final year of his engineering curriculum and will graduate in May 2009 with an Integrated Bachelor/Master of Architectural Engineering degree, with a focus in construction management.  Shawn is actively involved with S:PACE and is a member of the Phi Alpha Epsilon honor society. Shawn successfully passed the FE Exam in October 2007 and will gain EIT status upon graduation in May.

Shawn has spent the past three summers working for two different construction management companies as a summer intern. During his first internship, he worked for The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company at the Loyola College in Maryland New East Campus Residence Hall in Baltimore, MD. Shawn worked for the Clark Construction Group, LLC during his second and third summer internships. Shawn spent his first summer with Clark on the Pearson Square Condominium job in Falls Church, VA and his second summer on the Redland Technology Center job in Rockville, MD. Through his summer internships, Shawn has gained experience in both working on the site as a superintendent and in the office as a project manager. Shawn thoroughly enjoyed working on construction sites and has a great appreciation of the amount of hard work and coordination it takes to build today’s complex buildings. Upon graduation Shawn hopes to work for an industry leading construction management company and to develop the skills needed to become a top-level executive.

Shawn was raised on a 400 acre family farm in south central PA. He helped out by performing farm tasks such as harvesting crops, feeding livestock, and upkeep of farm machinery and structures. The farm kept Shawn very busy in high school and into college where he still helps out on weekends and other free time.
