The lighting design will pertain to the entry lobby, promenade, classroom and museum, with an overarching concept to embrace: embrace nature, embrace culture, embrace the world in which we live. The spring semester will pick up where the fall semester left off by finalizing schematic design, working through design development and finishing off with documentation. The lighting designs will be analyzed and verified such that they not only fulfill the concepts, but also meet design criteria such as IES illuminance recommendations and ASHRAE standards

In response to the lighting changes, the branch circuiting of the electrical system will be modified appropriately and specific controls will be implemented. Additionally the electrical depth will include the cost savings on using aluminum wire rather than copper throughout the building. The second study will be the introduction of a different emergency power system, specifically a generator. Each of these topics will be studied for cost and benefits to determine feasibility.

The architectural breadth will help bring design concepts into the classroom and the museum. It will include the modification of the ceilings to provide continuity in concept throughout the cultural center. There will also be modifications to other materials in the classroom that will add further definition to the room and add an element of interactive education to the space.

The mechanical breadth will study the effects of different glass types on the mechanical loads in the corresponding spaces (the classroom and entry lobby), as well as the consequent effect on useful daylight.

User 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-in-progress 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 Lindsay Frederick. Changes and discrepencies 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.
