Senior Thesis and the e-Portfolio

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.

The Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (Jefferson Lab) is a laboratory funded by the U.S. Department of Energy and managed by the Jefferson Science Associates, LLC. The primary research conducted at Jefferson Lab is in the field of nuclear physics, specifically to better understand the atom's nucleus at the quark level.

The Technology and Engineering Development (TED) building is one phase of a four-phase project designed to upgrade and expand Jefferson Lab's current technical development and support space for the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF). In addition to the construction of the new TED, current temporary work spaces will be demolished and the existing Test Lab will receive an addition and complete renovation; however, these three phases are not within the scope of this thesis.

The scope of this thesis is to provide an analysis of all architectural and engineering systems utilized in the design of the TED, with a more comprehensive analysis of the mechanical system. In addition to these technical reports, the mechanical system will receive an in depth redesign and two other engineering system will be redesigned with less depth. The goal of these redesigns are to improve building performance.

A special thanks to Jefferson Lab for allowing the use of the TED as the subject of this thesis and to EwingCole for allowing access to project documentation and answering any questions about the design.


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‐inprogress
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 David Blum. 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.
