We are pleased to introduce, Andy Ladd, our new Intern Architect at CCD! Andy grew up in Columbus, MS and is looking to graduate from Mississippi State University this upcoming May with a Bachelor of Architecture and a minor in psychology.

While at MSU he participated in RUF and enjoyed spending time in multiple organizations around campus to help take up time not spent in the architecture building. He enjoys disc golfing with friends, hiking, watching football, and playing video games. After getting married this summer to his wife, Anna Grace, Andy is excited for the opportunity to be here in Jackson and spend time working at CCD as he finishes up school.

Bayou Academy’s renovation was recently awarded an Honor Citation by the Mississippi Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA). The Honor Citation is “awarded to projects worthy of recognition because of design quality.” Jurors commented that “small gestures have made an enormous impact, transforming a tired industrial building into a composition of well-crafted materials that give elegance to the building entry.” CCD is happy to have been a part of this transformation and we look forward to working with Bayou Academy to realize future phases of the school’s master plan.
