Final Report

The South Halls Renovation and New Construction project is a $94M construction project, which is located in University Park of the Pennsylvania State University. There are four identical dormitory buildings that are currently being consecutively renovated, with Ewing - Cross serving as the building primarily analyzed for previous technical reports and for this final report. This senior thesis report encompasses the findings of the four analyses that were performed for the South Halls Renovation. Through project team interviews, course knowledge, jobsite visits, and online research, the four analyses for this report were developed.

The four analyses included in this report are:

  • Analysis 1: Modularization of Bathroom Units
  • Analysis 2: SIPS Implementation for Student Rooms
  • Analysis 3: Prefabrication of Limestone Facade
  • Analysis 4: Resequencing of Renovation Phases
