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 Saxton. 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.

Dan Saxton's Technical Assignments:

Technical Report 1 is an evaluation of ASHRAE Standards 62.1-2007 and 90.1-2007, and a summary of The STEM Center's compliance with the requirements in each standard.
Technical Report 2 (.pdf) Technical Report 2 is an analysis of the design loads, energy consumption, and operating costs for The STEM Center, using Trane TRACE 700 for simulation.
Technical Report 3 (.pdf) Technical Report 3 is an evaluation of the mechanical design for the STEM Center, including system description and schematic, and LEED credit analysis











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 consultant, course instructors, and industry consultants. This website is dedicated to the research and analysis conducted via guidelines provided by the Department of Architectural Engineering.
