AEI Student Competition | 350 Mission Street | San Francisco, California
Abby Kreider | Construction

Abby Kreider is a fifth year Architectural Engineering student at the Pennsylvania State University, focusing on construction management. She will graduate in May 2014 with a Bachelor of Architectural Engineering.

Over the past 4 summers, Abby has had the opportunity to work in a variety of different fields of construction including 2 internships with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and 2 internships with Barton Malow Company. When working as an intern for PennDOT in the summers of 2010 and 2011, Abby was exposed to all facets of the road and bridge construction industry including testing of materials and tracking of all deliveries onsite. Through her experience with Barton Malow Company in the summers of 2012 and 2013, she was exposed to construction in both the healthcare and higher education markets. During this time, Abby worked on all forms of document control and implemented a new time-tracking field application that will eventually track productivity onsite, aiding in estimating and bidding of future jobs.

Through her involvement with both professional and social organizations, Abby has developed a strong foundation of leadership, management, and communication skills. During her time at Penn State, Abby has been involved as a member in S:PACE Penn State student chapter, Penn State Lion Ambassadors, Penn State Engineering Ambassadors, Penn State Student Society of Architectural Engineers, Penn State Women in Engineering Program, and a THON Morale Committee. In the Spring 2013 semester, Abby also participated in the BIM/IPD architectural studio, an AIA award winning course, as the construction engineer for her team. Abby is happy to be involved with the integrated team AEVITAS to fulfill her senior capstone project in BIM/IPD.

Abby enjoys swimming, traveling, skiing, and reading in her spare time.

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 AEVITAS. 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.
