Abstract

The objective of this MQP is to explore an effective design for a three- story office building. The proposed structure is situated on a section of land previously occupied by the Galleria Mall in downtown Worcester, Massachusetts. After exploring multiple options for structural steel and reinforced concrete, the two most economical designs for each material were further evaluated to determine the best approach in terms of cost. The body of work done takes various cost and schedule implications into account.
