Abstract:

Within the scope of the undergraduate and graduate Civil and Architectural engineering programs is the need to relate information from textbooks and classrooms to the actual construction industry. The report will attempt to bridge the gap between real world situations and the world of academics. Walters Construction Management has agreed to let their organization and one of the current projects serve as a model for this report. The Bank of Westminster is under construction at the corner of 92nd Avenue and Sheridan Blvd. The bank project along with the organizational structure of Walters Construction Management will be studied and analyzed and results will give a realistic approach to future student assignments. The objectives of this report are to study the construction phase of the Bank of Westminster and to tie it to specific graduate and undergraduate courses offered in the Construction phase of the Bank of Westminster and to tie it to specific graduate and undergraduate courses offered in the Construction Management field in the Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering. This report will study the development of the B.L. Walters company from the original corporate entity of Walters Construction Management and why this cooperation came into existence.
