Abstract

The Major Qualifying Project proposed a sustainable structural design for an electrical transmission line's transition building. The team developed a complete structural design and analysis compensating for post-disaster scenarios and the climate of Nova Scotia. Sustainable materials were researched to be implemented into the construction of the facility for building longevity and protecting the environment. The final report for Stantec Engineering and Worcester Polytechnic Institute included design criteria to assist in the selection of the most suitable materials.
