Students get hands-on experience working on site layout and structural designs.
Outstanding Capstone Project Awards
The department congratulates the following student teams for presenting the best two-semester graduation project in their academic year. The project consists of two parts: 1) Site layout and 2) Structural design.
The first assignment is to perform complete site layout design for a suburban building complex that includes all buildings, grading, drainage, stormwater management, structures, sanitary sewers, water supply networks, parking, driveways, recreational areas, erosion and sediment control, vegetated areas, traffic studies, pavement design, road design including road profiles and signage. The site plan submittal must meet basic code requirements.
The second assignment is to produce a detailed structural design that meets all the building code requirements. Additionally, the structural design typically involves analysis and design of retaining wall systems.
The deliverables for the project consist a full set of site drawings, structural and architectural drawings along with a detailed calculation report. Students present and defend their design in an oral presentation.
The department encourages students to review the attached project documents which serve as a good example of the level of work expected upon graduation.
