Abstract

The purpose of this Major Qualifying Project was to analyze and design a structural system for an illustrative commercial building in Worcester, Massachusetts. The design process included an architectural layout, structural framing options using both steel and concrete, a dome roof, and a partial glass curtain wall. The work was completed in compliance with the IBC and local building codes. Several structural materials and strategies were evaluated to produce a final, cost-effective, design recommendation, which was presented in Revit Models.
