 Hard Hat Tour - Consumers Energy Jackson Innovation Center                  
Come get out of Ann Arbor and see a LEED-targeted project in another part of our chapter's region!
In an attempt to hold events in other parts of our region, AIA Huron Valley is presenting a hard hat tour of the Jackson Innovation Center, an adaptive reuse of an existing 3-story department store in downtown Jackson MI.
      165 W Michigan Ave, Jackson MI 49201 

       Topics to be covered include:          
       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. Coordinating construction for a multi-story building renovation with a tight timeframe. 
6. Preservation of terra cotta cladding on building's existing steel structure.
     This event is being submitted for AIA Continuing Education and should provide 1 CEU.
      IMPORTANT NOTE: Attendees will need to have hard hat, boots, safety glasses, and hi-vis outer wear.  
      Pre-registration required.
