               Welcome to Rami Y. Moussa's Architectural Engineering (AE) Senior Thesis ePortfolio. Here you will find Rami's senior thesis project for the 2010-2011 academic year. This site is a work-in-progress and will display research on The Kenyon College Peirce Hall located in Gambier, Ohio. Research includes analysis of most major building systems and a detailed study of the hall's mechanical systems. The analysis will be based on systems designed and assembled during the 2006-2008 renovation, addition, and expansion project and any of the original structure that remained. All work will be completed in accordance to The Capstone Project Electronic Portfolio program.

               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.
