  Technical Report 1 is an overview of the existing structural system of Jackson Crossing. The study of the existing structure includes detailed descriptions of the gravity system, lateral system, and loads applied to the structure.  
  Notebook Submission A is a in-depth analysis of the gravity and lateral loads present in the existing design of Jackson Crossing. The report investigates a cross section of the roof, floor, and exterior walls to detail the materials that contribute to the dead load of the building.  
  Notebook Submission B is an analysis of the gravity loads for a typical bay in the existing structural system along with three alternative systems.  
  Notebook Submission C is an analysis of how the lateral forces are distributed to resisting members and the drift the forces cause on the members. This is accomplished through the use of a 3D analysis model and hand calculations.  
  Note: While great efforts have been taken to provide accurate and complete information on the pages of CPEP, please be aware that the information contained herewith is considered a work in progress for this thesis project. Modifications and changes related to the original building designs and construction methodologies for this senior thesis project are solely the interpretation of Michael Bologna. Changes and discrepancies in no way imply that the original design contained errors or was flawed. Differing assumptions, code references, requirements, and methodologies have been incorporated into this thesis project; therefore, investigation results may vary from the original design.
