Albano, Leonard D.
A five-story structure was created for modification to demonstrate the variations in design as a result of building codes, fire codes, and environmental factors. Environmental factors were considered in Boston, MA; Los Angeles, CA; and Miami, FL. Designs were evaluated based on estimated costs, and changes in the structural and fire protection layouts. This report includes structural and fire protection design calculations, architectural drawings, structural drawings, fire alarm drawings, and fire protection drawings for five different occupancy case studies.
