This new building for Drexel University is an 11 story, 50-bed co-ed dormitory constructed in the summer and fall of 2006. I was responsible for the exterior wall design and construction. This included the design and detailing of all exterior wall components, including factory-fabricated wall panels, glazing systems, concrete detailing, all waterproofing, vapor barriers and moisture control.
I oversaw and coordinated construction efforts, including shop drawings, material compatibility testing and analysis and design-build coordination with the general contractor and subcontractors. Exterior facade materials include aluminum frame systems, prefabricated corrugated metal panels, exposed steel framing and concrete.
