 "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 Shane Goodman. 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 form the original design."

Technical Assignments


Technical Assignment 1

Technical Report One is an initial examination of the design and construction of the Detroit Integrated Transportation Campus (DITC).  This report focuses on the construction management aspects of the project, and specifically looks into the project schedule, project cost, existing site conditions, local conditions, project delivery system, and the construction staffing plan.

Technical Assignment 2
4D Structural System Model (Strongly Recommend Sound On)

Technical Report Two focuses on the construction management aspects of the DITC project, and specifically includes a detailed project schedule, a site layout plan, a 4D model of the superstructure phase, a detailed structural estimate, a general conditions estimate, and current construction industry issues.

Technical Assignment 3

Technical Report Three is an investigation into constructability challenges, schedule acceleration, and value engineering of the DITC project. The report focuses on identifying potential problems with the design and construction of the building, and presents four technical analysis methods to be further developed into a thesis proposal.




General Description:
The Capstone Project Electronic Portfolio (CPEP) is a web‐based project and information center. It contains material produced for a year‐long Senior Thesis class. Its purpose, in addition to providing central storage of individual assignments, is to foster communication and collaboration between student, faculty consultant, course instructors, and industry consultants. This website is dedicated to the research and analysis conducted via guidelines provided by the Department of Architectural Engineering.
