Thesis Final Report




Final Report

Throughout the course of the 2013/2014 academic year, Wardman West Residential was analyzed to identify areas that would enhance the construction of the project. Using research, feedback from the project team and in-depth investigation of the project's existing systems one major theme was identified: exterior brick masonry work. With exterior brick masonry as my focus, during the spring semester I performed four analyzes that included: prefabrication of the existing brick veneer wall using precast concrete wall panels, development of a SIPS (Short Interval Production Schedule), performing a safety evaluation, and researching responsibilities specific to a general contractor when using architectural precast concrete.
