User Note:

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 Boyer. 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.


Technical Assignements


Technical Assignment I 
This report is an analysis of the current design and related construction management issues of the Buckhorn Medical Office Building. The report includes a project schedule summary, building systems summary, project cost evaluation, site layout plan, local conditions, client information, project delivery system, and staffing plan.
Technical Assignment II
This report 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 Assignment III
This report identifies some constructability and value engineering topics that were addressed during the design and construction phases of the Buckhorn Medical Office Building project. The report also addresses some topics that could be used for future research as well as some potential research methods.
