Abstract

This project proposes a scheduling approach to coordinate the final stage of activities to be conducted in the construction of a new WPI residence hall. Based on the traditional schedule generated by the Critical Path Method, the proposed approach uses the Line of Balance method to coordinate in more detail subcontractors performing repetitive operations within the building. The project also presents a structural design for a section of the building foundation to support lateral loading during construction.
