From Panther to Pioneer: Jonathan Allbritton Leads Construction Science Project for Mississippi State University

Jonathan Allbritton, a former BHS Panther and current building construction science major from Bogue Chitto, recently led a team of students from Mississippi State University in a construction science project. Serving as Construction Manager, Allbritton and his team worked on creating a master plan for a hypothetical cultural campus and designing a freestanding museum for the university. The project was part of the College of Architecture, Art, and Design’s Collaborative Studio, led by several faculty members, including Associate Professor Alexis Gregory and Building Construction Science Instructor Briar Jones.

The Collaborative Studio is funded by the PCI Foundation and focuses on using precast concrete for structure and cladding in museum designs. This is the fourth year that the studio has received support from the PCI Foundation, providing students and faculty with valuable experiences in working with precast concrete and understanding the importance of collaboration between different professionals in the construction industry.

Each team in the Collaborative Studio was made up of building construction science students serving as construction managers and architecture majors in various roles such as project managers, architects, and project designers. The project involved creating a hypothetical cultural campus near The Mill Conference Center, with a museum to house the university’s collections from various existing museums and galleries. The new Ulysses S. Grant Presidential Library would also be part of the cultural campus.
