Abstract

With the Worcester Polytechnic Institute student body increasing, campus space must be expanded. Salisbury Estates presents an opportunity for redevelopment. Through interviews and research, multiple building layouts were considered, and preliminary designs for a residential and an academic building were finalized. Floor plans, life safety, and cost analysis were conducted. A complete framing plan with structural analysis of beams, columns, and footings was created for the academic building. Deliverables include a report, structural calculations, AutoCAD drawings, and a cost estimate.
