Albano, Leonard D.
Using vibrations as the primary design consideration, this project produced three designs of varying vibration performance for a 170,000 square foot, multi-use structure with rooftop athletic fields on the WPI campus. All three designs adhere to AISC, ASCE, ACI, LEED, NIBS, and NFPA specifications and the Massachusetts State Building Code. A cost analysis using RSMeans was performed to select the design that best optimized performance and economy. Final design details include: structural framing and foundation plans; geometrics for two levels of parking; architectural, egress, lighting, and HVAC considerations for a multipurpose academic, athletic, and recreational space; and site grading and drainage plans.
