This project focuses on the structural analysis of the renovation of Kaven Hall at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Worcester, Massachusetts. It provides a structural design of the building with an additional floor added on to the attic and the total cost estimate. Taking into consideration sustainability analysis and data from the Code of Massachusetts Regulations and Americans with Disabilities Act, an appropriate renovation plan is proposed. The renovation proposal of Kaven Hall is expected to improve the educational efficiency with the increased area.
