FISK Corporate Headquarters
Houston, Texas
Stephen Blanchard | CM Option
The Penn State Senior Thesis Project encompassed an in-depth analysis of the design and construction regarding the Fisk Corporate Headquarters project. It began with three technical reports that provided me the opportunity to acquire a thorough understand of the project as it was originally designed and constructed. These technical reports were very detailed in their requirements and expanded upon my ability to research and compile information regarding an existing project. Upon completion of the technical reports, a second semester propoal was written to outline the various analyses that would be completed in an effort to improve the project. These educational analyses were completed during the spring of 2013 and compiled into a comprehensive final thesis report and presentation. The thesis process taught me how effectively evaluate a project and efficiently propose alternate means or methods that could be implemented to improve the overall quality of said project.
CPEP Reflection
The Capstone E-Portfolio is an efficient way for students to document and illustrate their work for the Penn State Architectural Engineering Senior Thesis Project. It also is an effective tool for future students, professors, and industry professionals to use as a construction management reference.
