Sustainable WPI Residence HallPublic
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
The student population at Worcester Polytechnic Institute has outgrown the number of available beds on campus, forcing most upperclassmen to search for off campus apartments. This Major Qualifying Project explores this issue and proposes a design for a new suite-style residence hall to be constructed on the current site of Ellsworth Apartments. To accomplish this, the state building codes and local zoning laws were consulted to design floor and structural steel framing plans. Deliverables included a 3D AutoCAD Revit model with phasing, a Microsoft Project schedule, and a cost analysis. Additionally, sustainable alternatives were researched, analyzed, and ranked in order to develop a set of recommendations for which WPI should utilize in this new and future residence hall designs.
