Walter Anderson Museum of Art Addition and Expansion

Ocean Springs, MS
$703,869
Mississippi Associated Builders and Contractors Merit Award Winner 2014
Opened in 1991, Walter Anderson Museum of Art has become a popular attraction in historic downtown Ocean Springs, Mississippi, showcasing artwork from Walter Inglis Anderson and his brothers, Peter and James.

This project was for the construction of a new 855 square-foot entry pavilion with an enlarged gift shop using 21-foot tall structural glazing system, reconfiguring existing spaces, and enclosing two 480 square-foot courtyards to create galleries connected to the main exhibition building. The enclosure of the courtyards included new concrete brought through the occupied museum by wheelbarrow and installation of new steel columns and beams, sheetrock, slate flooring, skylights and new electrical.

Work also included selective demolition, site preparation, new paver walkways, structural steel, metal framing, metal and built-up roofing, mechanical and plumbing systems, and finishes to match the existing with wood walls, ceilings, and floors.

All work was performed in an open and operating museum with special care to minimize noise, dust, and vibration, and to prevent damage to the existing structure and artwork.

Ft. Maurepas Park and Pavilion

Ocean Springs, MS

$1,714,964
In April of 1699, explorer Pierre LeMoyne Sieur d’Iberville sailed into Biloxi Bay, claiming the land for King Louis XIV and France, which is now known as Ocean Springs, Mississippi. On that site, d’Iberville founded Fort Maurepas which became the capital of the Louisiana Colony until 1702 when it was moved to Mobile, present-day Alabama.

This historic site was restored to reflect the outline of the original fort in the form of a cast stone seat wall surrounding a lawn area. Other features include a performing stage and a pavilion with an observation deck overlooking the gulf. A new playground and splash pad contribute to making this one of the finest public parks on the coast.
