Worcester Polytechnic Institute has approved plans to construct a new mixed-use academic and residential building on campus, the Foisie Innovation Studio. The goal for the building is to foster the innovative and collaborative skills of WPI students while displaying various project work completed at the school. This project proposes a schematic design for the building emphasizing the structural system as well as cost estimates, schedules and a 5D model visually communicating the building’s earned value and feasibility of construction. The project focuses on the utilization of Building Information Modeling as a tool for managing and facilitating construction from the design phase onward.
