Jonathan Albritton, a former BHS Panther now studying building construction science at Mississippi State University (MSU), recently led a team of students in a construction science project. As the Construction Manager for the project, which aimed to create a master plan for a hypothetical cultural campus and design a freestanding museum for MSU, Albritton worked alongside 12 other teams made up of building construction science and architecture majors.

The innovative Collaborative Studio, led by Associate Professor of Architecture Alexis Gregory and others, is funded by the PCI Foundation. The studio’s focus is on using precast concrete for structure and cladding in museum designs. Each team had construction managers, project managers, architects, and project designers who worked together to create their projects.

The goal of the project was to create a cultural campus near The Mill Conference Center that would include a new museum to house the university’s various collections. After completing their work, the students presented their designs to professors and hypothetical clients. According to Gregory, the Collaborative Studio has been supported by the PCI Foundation for four years, providing students with valuable experience in collaboration and the impact of design on the construction process. Each year, students and faculty learn more about precast concrete and successful project execution through collaboration between architects, contractors, and other industry professionals.
