Abstract

St. Vincent Hospital is currently building a Cancer Center in the Worcester City Square development to meet growing needs of cancer research and treatment. This report examined alternative structural floor systems for this building that may result in faster construction and lower the cost of the project. Building Information Modeling software was utilized to assist in the investigation. The investigation proved that the existing design is the most effective approach for the construction of St. Vincent Cancer Center.
