Abstract

This project followed the construction processes of the University of Massachusetts Advanced Center for Clinical Education and Science. Our group's members attended weekly owner and subcontractor meetings to observe the planning, scheduling, budgeting, and building procedures. We also used Revit and Primavera computer programs to aid in our scheduling and budgeting developments. For the Capstone design aspect, we calculated a design solution to a problem with the steel trusses concerning additional dead loads that was encountered during the construction process.
