  Nexus Report






















Nexus is pleased to announce that it was awarded 'Winner' in the Construction Management category and 'Runner-Up' in the Integration category of the AEI National Competition!

Nexus is an interdisciplinary engineering team comprised of seven members from the four building system disciplines: Construction Management, Lighting / Electrical, Mechanical, and Structural.

Nexus' Mission Statement:

To develop a high performance elementary school that merges education with the community that is safe and cost effective while functioning as a learning tool.

This thesis is a part of the Charles Pankow Foundation Annual Architectural Engineering Student Design Competition hosted by the Architectural Engineering Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers.

The competition is a project involving the design and construction management of the engineered aspects of a high performance building including the structural systems, building envelope, mechanical systems, and electrical systems.

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.

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 Nexus. 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.
