This project analyzed the current conditions of the underground coal bin used for storage on the Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s (WPI) Campus, and determined effective options for rehabilitation and replacement. Each option is designed to withhold loading due to trucks and pedestrians, and withstand exposure to water runoff, snow buildup and other environmental factors. Cost and value analyses were performed for each option including a net present value and axiomatic design matrix for the consideration of WPI’s decision-making process.
