Operation WEBS (Women Empowered Build Strong) Tiny Home on Wheels Preconstruction Package is an interdisciplinary project based senior project completed by California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, College of Architecture and Environmental Design students Jake Torres and Brendan Moynahan. With the help of Hunter Smith Architecture, Wethington Engineering Inc, electrician Lloyd Taylor, and plumber Paolo Sena we completed deliverables for designing and planning the construction of a tiny home on wheels with the goal of providing a displaced women veteran a sustainable housing solution through owner Sandy Blair’s nonprofit Operation WEBS. Our team intended to design and build a home that will change the trajectory of a displaced female’s life as well as showcase Cal Poly students’ ability to provide construction management services on a small scale, unique residential project. The paper will describe the entire preconstruction process it took to deliver the construction drawings, project proposal, budget and cost estimate, material quantity take offs, schedule and phasing plan, site logistics, and safety plan.
