Designing Our Future

Architectural Engineering Technology Senior Project: Reed Doolan

Reed Doolan One-stop: Main Entrance For many years, NHTI has been contemplating the creation of a new "One Stop" building, offering centralized access to all student services.  For his Senior Capstone Project, AET major Reed Doolan designed that building.  Working with VP of Student Affairs Steve Caccia to determine the college's needs, Reed came up with an innovative and beautiful design, shown above from the front entrance as it would be seen by a visitor approaching from the parking lot.

Reed Doolan One-Stop Quad ViewA view of the building from the Quad, at left, shows what appear to be three awnings covering the main entryway and running along the two wings of the building.  These are "green roofs," seeded with live plants, which would absorb and filter rainwater falling on the entire building.

Reed Doolan One-Stop InteriorThe green roofs are only one of many "green" innovations incorporated into Doolan's design.  In the interior view at right, note the "green wall" at the rear of the main atrium.  This three-story column of live plants generates oxygen and helps keep the air in the building fresh and clean, reducing the need for traditional, energy-intensive air conditioning and circulation.

Will NHTI ever have a "One Stop" building, and if so, will it look anything like Reed Doolan's creation?  Only time will tell!


EET Senior Projects: Let There Be Lights!​

Several of this year's Electronic Engineering Technology senior projects were shining successes ... literally!

(held here by Pelligrino) and synched to the signals on his bike.

Other light-related projects this year included Joseph Towne's solar flare detector,
and Richard Misso's laser harp!
