Abstract

This project presents an alternative design for the foundation wall of the Worcester Polytechnic Institute new residence hall to resist lateral loading during construction. The cost implications of this alternative design were also investigated. A 3-D model of the structure of the building was also constructed using Autdesk Revit software and a quantity takeoff was developed using this model. A cost estimate and takeoff for the structure were also performed and an earned value analysis was developed to access the progress of construction of the exterior walls.
