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 Christopher Kelly. Changes and discrepancies in no way imply that the original design contained errors or was flawed. Differing assumptions, code references, requirements, an methodologies have been incorporated into this thesis project; therefore, investigation results may vary from the original design.

Final Report

After a year of calculations, analysis, and studies, a final report has been complied. Within this report, a recap of the existing HVAC systems can be found as well as the two breadth studies and the HVAC re-design. A rainwater harvesting study and an electrical load analysis of whether or not a different emergency generator would be needed to be accommodate the re-designís HVAC system.
