  Summary of Experience  
  Christopher is a 5th year Architectural Engineering major in the Structural Option working toward his Master's degree, and he will be seeking full time employment starting in Summer of 2015.

His interests are in BIM collaboration, software interoperability, and force protection design. In Spring of 2014 he participated in Penn State's Collaborative Studio and worked with a multidisciplinary design team to develop a Revit-based information model for a proposed student enrichment center. The project required integration of not only ideas, but also software to run clash detection and optimize systems. This year he looks forward to investigating blast and progressive collapse analysis and gaining experience in force protection design through his graduate thesis.

Outside of structural engineering, his background is in Lean process--specifically Lean transformation--which has applicability in the architecture world during the transition to more interoperable software and in winning projects with Lean keen clients (particularly in healthcare).


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 Christopher Brandmeier. 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.
