This project assessed Gilbane Building Company, Cannon Design, and WPI's decision to build with steel instead of reinforced concrete for the new on-campus residence hall. By redesigning the residence hall using reinforced concrete, developing our own management schedule, and performing a cost analysis we were able to compare the concrete design process to the steel design process that was used. We weighed the structural changes in the building, scheduling differences, and final cost to gain an understanding of the differences.
