Bio Sketch

Jonathan Krepps is currently a 5th year senior and an Architectural Engineering Major at Penn State University.  In May 2013 he will be graduating with a Bachelor of Architectural Engineering degree, with a focus in structural engineering.  He is also a member of many organizations around campus. They include the Penn State chapter of the Architectural Engineering Institute (Student Society of Architectural Engineers), the Structural Engineering Association (SEA), and the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA).

Over the past three summers Jonathan worked at Century Cabinetry.  He worked as an assistant to the plant manager doing various jobs including organization of the shipping department, preparing shipments, accompanying drivers on deliveries directly to job sites, preparing doors for cabinets, and assembling frames.

Jonathan has been with the organization for the past three years, and last year he held the position of PASS Leader. As a PASS Leader he is responsible for regulating the amount of people allowed onto the event floor and dealing with any problems that may arise.

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.

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 Christopher Ankeny. 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.
