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 Christopher
Ankeny. 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.
Final Report

Final Report - The final report is a culmination of the entire years work which summarizes the content of the technical reports as well as detailing the design of an alternative system. This alternative system is a shear wall layout designed to resist a majority of the lateral loads on the building allowing for the reduction of column sizes. In addition to the structural depth an architectural and construction breadth were studied to determine the effects of the alternative system on the floor plan, facade, and overall cost and shcedule of the building.
