1. Adaptive reuse of an existing 3 story commercial building in downtown Jackson for use as a business incubator office space. 2. Repair and restoration of existing terra cotta facade. 3. Daylighting strategies to bring natural light into an older building. 4. Structural and life-safety issues with a new atrium skylight that cuts through the roof and 3 levels of concrete floors to provide a light well through the building. 5.
