Abstract

This project proposes an alternative design for the floor system of Worcester State University’s Sheehan Hall residence dormitory and compares it to the existing design in terms of scheduling and costs. It also reviews on-site project management practice including scheduling, cost and lean construction. Building Information Modeling is used to visualize the impacts of the alternative design and to create a 5D model of the building structure for the comparison between the planned and actual cost and schedule.
