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 Daniel Hesington. 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.


Thesis Proposal

This report contains a brief overview of UNC IRB. In this report, an alternate structural system is proposed using steel construction rather than cast-in-place concrete. Additionally, breadth topics are covered including cost and schedule analysis and fire protection. Lastly, a schedule is given for the proposed work.

Revised Thesis Proposal

The revised propsal contains additional details on the solution method and the first breadth proposal, construction management study. The revised propsal also proposes a new second breadth, facade analysis, instead of fire protection as in the orginal.
