Hello and welcome to Brad Oliver's CPEP website. I am studying the Johns Hopkins Student Graduate Housing building as my fifth-year thesis study. It is a 20-story residential tower providing 929 bedrooms for their graduate students. A live webcam and link to the building site can be found here.

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. For an explanation of this capstone design course and its requirements click here.

A special thanks goes to:

The assistance and resources they provided have proven invaluable in this project.
