Project Purpose and Need. Morgan State University, located in Baltimore City, is a popular educational establishment that is aims to provide high-quality studying process under the supervision of attentive and knowledgeable experts. Every year, thousands of students apply to become a part of educational journey suggested by Morgan State University. Every year, the number of applicants grows, and the university administration faces the challenge in providing accommodation for all students. For instance, total number of students at the university sums up to 8,018, and only 40 % of applicants can be admitted. In this respect, there is a significant need in the construction of a LEED certified dormitory building. It will provide university with an opportunity to admit more students and strengthen trusting relationships with the community. B. Preliminary Engineering Scope. The suggested dormitory is expected to be constructed close to Morgan State University main building and Morgan State University-Hill Field House. Such a location will be particularly advantageous for students since they will not spend much time on getting to the educational establishment and back home every day. On top of that, it will create the complex of related buildings in close geographic points which is in tune with university’s time-management policy. The location for university dormitory is beneficial for one more reason, which is close neighboring with Northeast District Police Department. To realize the project, preliminary engineering scope requires thorough investigations in roadway engineering (including topographic survey, control survey report, constructability, and maintenance review), structural 2 engineering (including preliminary geotechnical engineering report), utility engineering, communications (reports), environmental documents (including technical environmental studies, namely, air, noise, and ecology studies). C. Design Standards/Regulations. Since the building should be LEED certified, it is necessary to follow LEED as well as City standards and regulations. It is important to mention that The Baltimore City Green Building Standards are based upon the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. It is also vital that the Baltimore Metropolitan Council and the Department of Transportation review coordinate and evaluate engineering plan. Lindsay Freeman Site Analysis Site Analysis: While trying to decide on a location, we had to find an area that would provide a multitude of advantages that come with very few disadvantages. The area between the academic quad and the Field House would be perfect because it is very accessible from Hillen Road, Cold Spring Lane, Argonne Drive, and even Stadium Way. It allows students direct access to campus and its resources. That will help even with security concerns as well because students will not have to walk around alone in an unstable community that have crime concerns. The lighting in this area is already very good so that helps with security as well as planning for outdoor lighting. In this area, we will be able to build right on top of flat land that contain a lot of loamy soil, which will have a moderate infiltration rate when wet. That mean when the soil is wet it will drain good enough and that it is a low runoff potential which will not be a problem on flat land. It is key when trying to build a project that expected to last a very long time. While we are also worried about the structure of the building, we want to be able to plant small bushes and trees to promote a positive environment. Loam soil also benefits because it is good soil to plant with and good with retaining water. The grass on 3 campus is kept up to meet a certain standard so making sure the ground is treated properly will not be a problem. We will not even have to worry about the Deed to the land due our building being built directly on campus grounds. Noise complaints from the people in the neighborhood about the students traffic will also be irrelevant in this area. Yousef Alenezi Evaluation of design: Discussion In our group meeting, we talked about the options that we had to choose from in designing a new dormitory at Morgan State University. In the discussion, we came up with two options. The first option was to construct a new building that meets LEED requirements for at least Gold Certificate. The second option was that we renovate an existing MSU dormitory to make it meet LEED Gold requirements. Most of the group members took a greater interest in the idea of constructing a new building instead of renovating an existing building. Therefore, we all agreed to this option and will make our project on this option. Mohammed Algharyafi Design Features Landscape designing for a dormitory in Morgan University Landscape design in this context is an independent profession and design and art tradition, practiced by landscapers and professional designers. In most cases; these models are used to bridge the space between garden design and landscape architecture. It typically involves artistic composition, horticultural finesse, and expertise. This process goes from the conceptual stages through to the final construction. To build a dormitory which meets all the landscape designing features, we must consider 4 both the integrated master landscape planning of the building and the specific garden design of the plants around it. Also, the aesthetic, horticultural and environmental sustainability should be considered. A professional landscape designer should be used to come up with a good design which is acceptable. The essential steps to landscape design of a dormitory should include: • Making the landscape more functional • Doing all landscaping projects • Amend the soil around the dorm to organic matter • Planting flowers around the dormitory and choosing the right flowers. • Consider the space required • Provide the garbage site. • Finally, to keep a beautiful landscape it must be maintained, keeping the flowers watered and mulched. Building a room that is LEED certified should not be a problem; this is so because we can seek help from LEED professionals who have in-depth knowledge to help acquire LEED certification for the dorm building. A LEED certified building in most cases involve walls, ceiling, HVAC, and water system; the school should be prepared to meet or the cost. In addition, a dorm that is LEED certified should have cleaner airs, better efficiency, and lower living cost. For the dormitory to be LEED certified should: • Should be less expensive to construct • Should be built in proximity to walking and bike paths to and from the class • Should have good ventilations to enhance air supply • The chemicals used to build the dorm should not be toxic 5 • Most of the parts should be insulated; this will help to save on dorm heating and cooling. It is not possible to build a building with no plan or design. In this case, we fast create a dorm in our imagination before we go down to business. That's what architecture is all about. A good architectural design for the dormitory should meet the following: To formulate a proper architectural concept when building a dormitory lot is required, some of what is necessary include: • Becoming aware of pattern both within the architectural designs and within the way students use them. • Using building designs materials and integrations to differentiate how the dorm will impact the student. • Use of juxtaposition, this is where architectural elements can contrast one another, probably by, synchronizing them hence impacting the way the student will behave. Nasser Alhayyani Engineering Summaries Environmental Engineering We plan to build a well purposed ten-story dorm in the university. It is necessary to build a sufficient number of dorms in the university to meet the residential needs of students. The dorm accommodates many students and solve the residential problems of students in the universities. The site will be surveyed to ensure the proper construction arrangements for the building. First, we will perform the survey of land to ensure that it can easily accommodate sufficient number of students. Secondly, the ground breaking is performed, which is followed by excavation of land. Construction 6 With the help of a bulldozer and crew, the site is cleared of any kind of stones and hurdles. The site leveling is necessary for conducting a reasonable survey. The arrangement will be made for digging up the holes and trenches. After the land is made clear for the survey, we collected our team members and performed the survey. We concluded that the land in the back site of the university is sufficient to accommodate a good number of students. We think that a three-story building is sufficient for meeting the requirements of dorm construction. We proposed construction of five dorms on one floor so it will be total 15 rooms constructed on three floors. Each dorm will have an attached bathroom arrangement which will be placed on the backside of room. Utility Engineering The central air conditioning system is proposed for the building. For the proper ventilation system windows are well placed on the top side of the building. This configuration will allow the proper flow of air through the rooms and allow to maintain the humidity level low. To keep the room temperature low, we propose the use of a thermos pole in the roofs of buildings. It will block the heat energy from the surroundings and the room temperature will remain under the stable limits. Muhaned Alrashid Design Features and Project Plan: Building Construction Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is environmental friendly which allows construction to be carried out without environment pollution. LEED is recommended while constructing a building to ensure sustainable performance of activities (Moon at el., 2007 p. 338). Morgan State University campus is best area to build a green community building which is LEED certificate. LEED is environmental friendly which allows construction to be carried out without environment pollution. LEED is recommended 7 while constructing a building to ensure sustainable performance of activities (Moon at el., 2007 p. 338). In Morgan State University campus going to build a green community building which is LEED certificate. Estimation cost for dorm, scheduling and risk management. Morgan State University campus is the place that planning to construct building in a strategic position where it can be easily used for intended purposes. The building is estimated to cover 1.380,564 gross square meter and hold 77,780 people. Cost Estimation Total project cost will add up to $72,670,234 and the cost per square meter will be $280. Budget estimation stage will cost roughly $327 because it will include design development with escalation and contingencies. Moreover, a Green building will be constructed in a net square footage of 77,760. The estimated completion date will be July 2017, and building efficiency will be 57%. Also, the project designed cost of 10% will be included. Scheduling Building will be constructed at a strategic position where is expected to be used for different services. Additionally, the building is scheduled to have enough offices for the University meeting especially for hospitality issue. Therefore, Morgan State University estimates that the building to be constructed within four months, with an expected date of completion sometime in July of this year. Risk Management Green building can thrive in times of economic uncertainty but there are several legal issues that should be addressed by the builders. Therefore, construction firm need to determine standard care while constricting the building. Determining standard risks will help to understand green building constructing process. Performance risks is among the standard 8 risks that should be determined during construction. Performance risks includes uncertainty in the surrounding and the warranty of the new products to be used in construction. For instance, use of untested materials can lead to collapse of the building (Mok & Tummala, 2007 p. 170). Therefore, it is important to ensure the material are tested and fit to use in the construction environment. Furthermore, due to the potential risks, it is important for the builders to be environmentally conscious to avoid contaminating the environment, which can adversely affect the peoples’ health. As such, the construction firm can consult an insurance institution to have health of workers and the covered is covered. As such, Morgan State University constructors should make sure that they have building and management risks to cover their employees from any unseen hazards. Moreover, as contractors, Morgan State University would have to adopt ISO’s from coverage with three major components. Initially, they should provide green upgrade coverage to provide additional insurance that will address problems brought using more energy. The second component will be for expense coverage (Mok & Tummala, 2007 p. 170). Expense coverage will provide additional limits of insurance that will help to apply expenses related to green upgrades. The last component will be the business interruption component for the underlying of an extended period of restoration. This component is put in place because reconstruction in some parts of the building may be needed, hence making the construction period longer than speculated. Cabrea Toland, Gregory Gee Conclusion The new dormitory on Morgan State University’s campus is a necessity, as it will be able to provide housing accommodations to students. Factors concerning the new dorm included space, location, and safety precautions to name a few. The location near the Morgan 9 State University Hill Field House was able to provide a reasonable distance from the Academic Quad and more protection, due to it being in close proximity to the Police Department. The new dormitories placement also provides a close proximity to all school events and areas such as: The Student Center, Rawlings and the Hill Field House. The addition of this dormitory allows for a safer place to live as well as increased possibility for social interaction and participation in school activities. References Mok, C.
