Abstract

This project proposes an alternative design for the new 10 Faraday Street Residence Hall and compares it to the existing design in terms of functionality, LEED certification, construction schedule, and cost. The structural implications of increased gravity loads are reviewed. Building Information Modeling software is used to facilitate visualization of design, construction, and quantification of information. This project analyzes the communication process during the construction of the existing building and generates a 4D model of the early stages of construction.
