Abstract

This project provided an alternative design for the structural supports of the fourth floor of the new WPI Recreation and Sports Center. Using the information developed, a comparative analysis of the alternative design versus the current design was completed based on cost, feasibility, and dynamic response. Also, with information provided by Gilbane Building Co. and Cannon Design, two 4-D models of the project were completed. These models provided a platform to track and compare construction progress. In addition to the models, an earned value analysis was completed to further track construction progress and costs.
