Abstract

This project designed and analyzed a freshman dormitory building to replace the current Stoddard Hall. Objectives included increasing student capacity, building with existing contour of the land and satisfying students' needs. These objectives were met through preliminary research, architectural layout, structural design and a series of cost estimates on areas such as atriums and masonry construction. Research was conducted into building codes, zoning ordinances and RS Means estimating. Structural work was focused on use of W-shape rolled steel for support.
