J.M. Wilkerson Construction Co., Inc. converted the historical Fairlie-Poplar retail building into lofts Atlanta, GA.
The composition of the building consisted of a wood structure with structural steel supports. Whole floor areas were removed to allow for code egress regulations as well as to facilitate structural repairs. All surfaces were replaced with new finishes. The existing windows, that were intact, were refurbished and the new ones were made to resemble the existing windows as requested by the Historical Society. With close coordination between the owner and architect, the renovations were completed in time for the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games and qualified the owner for a tax credit from the City of Atlanta.
