Technical Assignment 2
Technical assignment 2 provides a more detailed insight into the construction schedule then technical assignment 1. It explores the site utilization plan for the finish phase of the project that is the critical path for the longest duration of the project and finally it icnludes detailed estimates of the structural system for the hospital bed tower and an estimate of the general conditions over the duration of the project.

Technical Assignment 3
This technical assignment will summarize the interview that I had with the Project Manager of the Voorhees Replacement Hospital project and address constructability challenges, schedule acceleration scenarios, and value engineering topics.  Additionally, this report will identify several problematic features of the building that could be researched and introduce construction management techniques that could be used for my thesis project.
