Abstract

Clark University is currently building the Alumni and Student Engagement Center on Main Street in Worcester, MA. This report explores a Girder-Slab structural floor framing system for this building. Using Building Information Modeling software, a five-dimensional model of the building is developed to support the alternative design and associated construction planning. Additionally, the impact of Requests for Information on the management process is investigated. The Girder-Slab design was found to be a time and cost efficient alternative design.
