This project developed an alternate roof design for WPI's Life Sciences & Engineering Center at Gateway Park to meet the LEED Heat Island Effect criteria, to reduce temperature differences between rural and urban areas. This steel roof design was developed using the LFRD and AISC methods, as well as the Massachusetts State Building Code. The project also investigated the cost and feasibility of meeting LEED Materials and Resources standards to promote sustainability in the construction industry.
