Abstract

Objective of this project was to develop alternative plans for Alumni Gymnasium such as classroom space to contribute to the WPI curriculum environment. This entailed design of additions to the existing wood and steel frame, calculations to ensure strength of the existing structure, and updates to the fire protection system to meet current requirements of the Massachusetts State Building Code. Along with the reconstruction and design of the gymnasium, an estimated budget was determined for remodeling and upgrading the building.
