As the city of Worcester continues to attract more students and businesses, CitySquare, a $563 million multi-phased private/public development project, will meet the demand for parking space with a steel structure underground parking garage managed by Consigli Construction. This project examined the management of its construction by assessing the effectiveness of the schedule, cost, and communication through Lean concepts. A structural design was proposed using prestressed concrete to serve as an alternative to the actual steel design. Environmental factors were considered by utilizing LEED concepts, embodied energy, and performing a life-cycle cost analysis. The concept of axiomatic design decomposition was used to identify the critical functional requirements and their design parameters.
