Abstract

This Major Qualifying Project encompasses a preliminary structural design, cost estimate, construction schedule, and fire protection design for a three-story campus center in Boston, Massachusetts. Utilizing the plans of a campus center for Wheelock College in Boston, Massachusetts as a reference, the project team developed a completely new design abiding by all relevant reference standards, such as NFPA 13 and ASCE 7-05. Additionally, structural alternatives for lateral frame designs were examined, as well as the design of three additional floors of dormitories to be placed on top of the original three-story campus center.
