He has a focus in Construction Management and will graduate in May 2013 with an integrated Bachelor and Master of Architectural Engineering degree. Matt has passed the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam in Fall of 2011 in preparation for PE Licensure.

Matt’s experience includes summer internships with Alexander Building Construction Company. Over the four summers of interning with Alexander Building Construction, he has two years of Project Engineering experience on a 14 million dollar project, The Gettysburg Hospital Emergency Department Addition and Renovation. He led the 2D MEP coordination process for the first and second floor during the time on site, as well as compiling all required information for the Operation’s Manual for WellSpan Health. He also has two years of Estimator experience working on approximately 10 hard bid projects and 4 negotiated projects.

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 the UNITUS design team. 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.

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.
