The Retail Center in Meridian is a 15,000 square foot development with 6 tenant bays that are flanked on each end by restaurant spaces. The east end’s restaurant includes a drive-thru window and the west end’ restaurant is a double bay space which includes a covered outdoor dining patio. The building’s exterior walls are primarily stucco in a variety of colors and textures to provide depth and variation along the facades. Minimal pops of bright colors line of the storefront entrances to catch the eye of shoppers. Under construction now, the center will be open in 2022.
The project consists of 29 science labs located in 7 high schools throughout the city of Jackson. Renovations consist of painting walls, replacing flooring, replacing ceilings, repairing and replacing selective lab stations and cabinets, replacing selected fume hoods, replacing existing light fixtures with LED fixtures and repairing portions of selective utilities. Two of the seven high schools are listed on the Historical register which required separate review and design for meeting that criteria. Chemistry Labs renovations include student workstations, teacher station, work surfaces and selective storage areas including the fume hood replacements and related mechanical modifications. Biology Flex Space renovations include removal of non-functioning student stations, installation of perimeter sinks, work surfaces and cabinets to accommodate different class types: Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science, Physics, etc. Typical interior finishes include walls painted with scrubbable paint finish and new VCT flooring with 6” high rubber base. Acoustical ceiling tile, appropriate for science lab environments with scrubbable finish, was installed with the ceiling grid in selected rooms.

museum campus.As the principal Architect, CCD worked with museum planning and exhibit designers Gallagher & Associates to bring this vision to life through the renovation and restoration of a historically signification structure in B.B.’s life and the construction of the museum and exterior spaces. Located in Indianola, Mississippi, the museum has been a valuable addition to the community and its economic prosperity.
CCD was selected by the MS Bureau of Building, Grounds and Real Property to work with Alcorn State University on a campus wide ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) improvements project. The initial scope included the assessment and identification of ADA deficiencies over the entire Lorman Campus, including the survey of 16 buildings. Working with the university and state agency, CCD developed a project scope that fits within a limited budget. It includes 30 restrooms, parking lots, paths to buildings, building entrances, interior circulation, exterior ramps, and other areas concerning equal accessibility for disabled persons.
The station is composed of a steel structure with CMU/Brick exterior walls and bituminous roof system. The exterior wall system around the truck bays utilize translucent wall panels to enhance interior lighting levels of the truck bays providing optimum lighting and conserving energy. The remaining lighting systems are LED throughout.
The facility features housing for 10 firemen in semi-private rooms, a full featured kitchen with pantry space for 3 different shifts, a hardened training area that also serves as a safe area for the crews during bad weather, a generator to provide back-up power allowing for continuous operations during disasters.
The facility also incorporates space for weight training,laundry, PPE sanitization, PPE lockers, and an area to perform minor maintenance on their equipment.
CCD is pleased to be a part of a new Mission Housing cabin, a joint project between World Gospel Outreach and Pinelake Church, located in a remote area outside of Belmopan, Belize.
Once competed, the cabin will serve as a central housing unit for volunteers to stay while ministering to and serving the people in the surrounding area.
CCD designed the 2,000 SF building which contains a living area with kitchen and 5 private bedrooms.
Construction is currently underway and being built by local craftsmen and volunteers from Pinelake Church out of locally grown native woods.
CCD worked with the Wise Carter law firm and Speed Commercial Real Estate to create an office for Wise Carter’s future. Long-time tenants in the historic Heritage Building, Wise Carter’s needs were analyzed and plans were created for improvements. At the 6th floor, the reception area was enlarged and a convenient conference room was created adjacent. The 2 story central atrium was recognized as a strong asset and was opened to the reception and staff work areas. Clean details and high ceilings improve the quality of the atrium. New interior finishes, lighting and furniture complement the space. A new conference center on the 1st floor provides meeting space for staff and clients.
Jackson Academy’s latest master plan is an update of two previous plans on which Canizaro Cawthon Davis worked that date back almost 30 years. The update was done in order to assess the current academic, athletic, facility, and cultural needs of the school. The plan sets functional and aesthetic goals for the campus and defines a logistical phasing sequence so that the proposed work can be achieved in a deliberate and effective manner. Features of the plan include a new upper school, middle school, and student center along with the renovation and expansion of the lower school, preschool, athletic center, performing arts center, and parking. This project was done in association with Hord Coplan Macht.
The Bayou Academy Addition and Renovation project is the first phase in the master planning and expansion of this ever-growing school in the Mississippi delta. With the addition of new street facades and an entry pavilion, the existing buildings are unified with a new identity. The new entrance courtyard provides a clear point of entry for visitors while separate outdoor patios expand the students learning experience beyond the classroom. On the interior, new administrative offices for both the upper and lower schools along with a conference room and other collaborative work spaces provide greater efficiency for the school’s daily operations and offer a welcoming atmosphere for the parents of current and prospective students. A new state-of-the-art science lab, media center, and library provide welcome updates to the school’s support spaces and better serve current pedagogical models.
