“Your team worked weekends and some holidays to ensure that we caught up the lost time as a result of the tremendous delays from the inclement weather. The quality of the construction of the building is exceptional and your firm made every effort to make sure the expectations of the owners as well as our tenant were met.”
- Gary Cress, The Cress Group
This three-story 95,000 sf Class A office building is situated on 6 acres in Ridgeland, Mississippi. The building has a structural steel frame built on drilled piers. The façade consists of metal panels and an aluminum storefront.
The developer, NLA Ridgeland, and the architect, Dean and Dean/Architects Associates represent long-term relationships that have proven valuable as White Construction has partnered to build in the southeastern United States. Horne, the primary tenant, is a valued new client.
The construction schedule was challenged by very inclimate weather, the second wettest year in Mississippi history. Owner-performed site work was delayed by rain, but White Construction resequenced the work to avoid delays. Nor did the team allow design modifications to delay completion. Despite these unavoidable challenges, the building was completed within two weeks of the planned date.
The third-floor interiors were completed as a separate project one year later, incorporating 4,483 sf of glass front offices, a cubicle area, collaboration spaces, and podcast sound in a workroom.
