Note: While great efforts happen to be come to provide accurate and finish info on the web pages of CPEP, take note the information contained herewith is recognized as a piece-happening with this thesis project. Modifications and changes associated with the initial building designs and construction methodologies with this senior thesis project are exclusively the interpretation of Brianne Kyle. Changes and discrepancies by no means imply the initial design contained errors or was problematic. Differing assumptions, code references, needs and methodologies happen to be integrated into this thesis project therefore, analysis results can vary in the original design.

FINAL THESIS PROPOSAL OVERVIEW
FINAL THESIS PROPOSAL:
The Ultimate Thesis Proposal is supposed to find out the four technical analyses topics that’ll be researched and conducted for that final thesis set of River Vue Apartments. The central theme of those technical analysis topics is efficiency including energy-efficiency and construction efficiency.
REVISED FINAL THESIS PROPOSAL: (Updated on March 20, 2012)
TECHNICAL ANALYSIS #1: PHOTOVOLTAIC GLASS WINDOW SYSTEM IMPLEMENTATION
Very couple of sustainable design techniques were utilised around the project that may provide financial help to the dog owner, River Vue Associates, LP. The goals with this technical analysis will be to create a preliminary photovoltaic glass window system design and to look for the financial and practicality of incorporating this new kind of window system in to the existing electrical energy source. Also, an electricOrgreen energy breadth will evaluate the way the photovoltaic glass window system is going to be attached to the electrical energy system.
TECHNICAL ANALYSIS #2: Eco-friendly ROOF SYSTEM IMPLEMENTATION
Very couple of sustainable design techniques were utilised around the project. The goals with this technical analysis will be to create a preliminary resident-accessible eco-friendly roof system design, evaluate the structural impact from the load-bearing eco-friendly roof system, and see the financial and practicality of incorporating this new roof system in to the existing building. Also, a structural breath will evaluate the way the load-bearing eco-friendly roof system affects the present Level 2 roof’s structure.
TECHNICAL ANALYSIS #3: 3D LASER Checking TECHNOLOGY IMPLEMENTATION
After analyzing the initial and challenging constructability issues around the River Vue Apartments project, as-built drawing inconsistencies and coordination were two most critical challenges. The as-built sketches caused some challenges around the project throughout the construction phase. Coordination from the MEP systems required a comprehensive period of time due to as-built drawing inconsistencies and also the existing steel and also the tight constraints between your structure and also the future building heights. The goals with this technical analysis will be to evaluate the results of utilizing 3D laser checking technologies to judge existing building conditions and to look for the cost and schedule impact. Also, you should evaluate the way the 3D laser checking technology plays a role in a 3D model and 3D coordination.
TECHNICAL ANALYSIS #4: LIGHTING OCCUPANCY SENSOR CONTROL SYSTEM
Throughout the PACE Roundtable’s Energy Management Services session, industry professionals discussed many key topics about energy management, a vital industry issue, and it is approaches for residential structures like River Vue Apartments. Occupant behavior includes a major effect on the building’s energy consumption. However, it’s a challenge to possess energy-efficient electrical and lighting systems which are beneficially utilized by the building’s occupants. Most building occupants don’t realize just how much their behavior can break the building’s energy performance. The aim with this technical analysis would be to research new suggestions for electrical and lighting systems which are energy-efficient, but not so difficult for that occupants from the building to make use of the machine properly without jeopardizing their comfort.
BREADTH TOPICS OVERVIEW
BREADTH TOPICS: (Updated The month of january 12, 2012)
The Breadth Topics usually are meant to demonstrate the breadth skills developed in the Architectural Engineering course work. These breadth topics range from the regions of Architectural Engineering outdoors of construction, e.g. architectural, acoustics, electrical, lighting, and structural. The illustration showing breadths in Architectural Engineering will effectively complete the analyses.
BREADTH Subject #1: ELECTRICAL/Alternative Energy BREADTH
Through the use of a structure-integrated photovoltaic glass window system, the present energy system will have to be examined to look for the needed electrical components and connections. The electrical power use of your building and the quantity of kWh capable of being created through the photovoltaic system is going to be calculated. These calculations can help determine the power savings connected using the photovoltaic glass. Additionally, to match the photovoltaic glass window system to become attached to the electrical system created by Claitman Engineering Associates, Corporation. the machine is going to be altered to support the alternative energy source created through the photovoltaic glass. Research around the different photovoltaic glass window systems connection types, e.g. grid connected, off-grid, and hybrid system, will have to be conducted since the connection type determines the bond needs to function around the electrical energy system. Also, a constructability review is going to be conducted to find out when the new electrical system meets needs from the photovoltaic glass window system.
BREADTH Subject #2: STRUCTURAL BREADTH
Incorporating a lot-bearing eco-friendly roof system around the Level 2 roof will need a structural analysis of those additional loads around the structural system from the roof. Research on the different sorts of eco-friendly roof systems, e.g. extensive and intensive, is going to be conducted and calculations is going to be performed to look for the needed additional support required to accommodate the dead load from the eco-friendly roof system and also the live load from the residential occupants being able to access the rooftop. Also, the extra support, like the metal roof deck and steel joists, needed is going to be made to efficiently merge using the existing roof’s structural system and evaluated for cost and schedule impacts.
