Abstract

This project proposed a replacement for 53 Wachusett Street, a building WPI owns and reclaimed following the 2018-2019 school year. The team determined a use for the building; designed a renovation and a replacement facility in accordance with Massachusetts State Building Code, Ninth Edition; and recommended one option to WPI. The scope of work included structural engineering using Load and Resistance Factored Design (LRFD) and fire protection design. This recommendation depended on structural designs, cost estimates, and building life spans.
