Technical Report #1
This report is
an analysis of the current design and related construction management
issues of the Pearland Recreation Center and Natatorium Project. The
report includes a project schedule summary, building systems summary,
project cost evaluation, site plan, local conditions, client information,
project delivery system, and staffing plan.
Technical Report #2
contains a detailed project schedule, detailed structural system cost
estimate, general conditions estimate, site layout plans for excavation,
foundations, structural framing erection, and enclosure phases of
construction. A summary of the 2009 PACE Roundtable conference is
also included, highlighting a few current issues in the construction
industry that may by applicable to this thesis research.
Technical Report #3
This report identifies
some constructability and value engineering topics that were addressed
during the design and construction phase of the Pearland Recreation Center
and Natatorium project. The report also addresses some topics that
could be used for future research as well as some potential research
methods for the topics.

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 Matt Smiddy. 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.
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 consultants, course instructors, and
industry consultants. This website is dedicated to the research and
analysis conducted via guidelines provided by the Department of
Architectural Engineering. For an explanation of this capstone design
course and its requirements click here.
