CM Report
























Nexus' CM final report was submitted to the AEI National Competition Jury on February 22, 2013. This report contains a 15-page narrative description of our innovate construction management techniques. Twenty pages of supporting documentation and 10 pages of plan-size drawings are also included.

Through the integration of the structural, mechanical, and lighting/electrical engineering disciplines along with innovative construction management techniques, Nexus plans to deliver the new Reading Elementary School with a seamless and fluid approach that results in the most functional and cost-effective school building for the district. The construction managers were tasked with ensuring an integrated building design that addressed the delivery method, project planning, budget, and schedule. This integration began by developing a BIM Execution Plan, which helped define team dynamics.

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.
