Former BHS Panther Albritton Takes the Lead in MSU Team Exercise for Construction Science Project – Daily Leader

Building construction science major Jonathan Allbritton, a former BHS Panther from Bogue Chitto, recently served as Construction Manager on a team at Mississippi State University. The team was part of the College of Architecture, Art, and Design’s Collaborative Studio, led by faculty members Alexis Gregory, Briar Jones, Ryan Ashford, and Jacob Lindley. The studio is funded by the PCI Foundation and focuses on using precast concrete for museum designs.

Allbritton’s team was one of 13 working on the project this semester. Each team had building construction science students as construction managers and architecture majors as project managers, architects, and project designers. The hypothetical cultural campus they designed would be located next to The Mill Conference Center and include a museum to house the university’s collections.

Students presented their work to professors and hypothetical clients at the end of the semester. This was the fourth year that the Collaborative Studio has been supported by the PCI Foundation. Through this experience, students learn about collaboration between architects, contractors, and industry professionals for successful project execution. The use of precast concrete in construction projects is a key focus area for the studio, and students gain valuable insights into how design decisions impact the construction process.
