Liaison: Kennet Bertelsen
Located in a rural and impoverished region of India, Padhar Hospital and MSAADA, a nonprofit architecture and engineering firm, asked our team to produce preliminary structural system, wastewater treatment system, and stormwater management system designs for a proposed nursing school facility. Through extensive research of the building codes and construction techniques in India, we selected the specific systems using the simple multi attribute rating technique decision-making tool. We then created a Design Study Report, which includes designs taken to 20% completion of selected structural systems, a mound wastewater treatment system, and a grading site plan as well as our summarized research into this project.
