This project based senior project is an interdisciplinary partnership with a non-profit called Journeyman International (JI) and students from the College of Architecture and Environmental Design (CAED) at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo (Cal Poly). Journeyman International worked Empowering Villages and our design team to design a community center, eco-lodge, and guest houses to enable the local population to take advantage of a tourism heavy area creating jobs and income. Empowering Villages objective is to empower, train, and build up the people they work with and hope to someday see Villages around the world become self-sufficient by working with locals to determine their economic and social needs, and then designing spaces that cater to these needs. The students from the college of Architecture and Environmental Design at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo designed the buildings and compiled a preconstruction package for the project. This paper highlights the preconstruction package and includes preliminary information on the following: conceptual and final estimates, construction schedule, hazard and risk assessment, material take offs, phasing plan, scope analysis, site logistics plan, SWPP plan, and a utilities analysis.
