This structural depth proposal will focus on an alternative roof framing system for the Susquehanna Center. After deep research into the redesign preliminary gravity load analysis will be performed followed by more complex lateral load analysis supported by a computer. Then these calculations and results well be compared to the existing to find feasibility.
Breadth Study I: Architectural
The architectural study will consist of the alteration of the roof strcuture of the expansion of the Susquehanna Center. Changing the roof framing will directly influence the structural makeup of the roof exteriorly and interiorly.
Breadth Study II: Cost And Scheduling Assessment:
This Construction study will include detailed cost assessments for new materials used and scheduling reports to check that the Susquehanna Center will still be on schedule for its set completion.
