The Township at Highland Colony is a multi-use development in Ridgeland, MS, just outside of Jackson. Over the last year, Laird + Smithers, Inc. has become the Structural and Civil Engineer of choice for all future projects in the development. Over the last year, two projects have been designed.
The first project, now under construction, is a one story retail building located at 1051 Highland Colony Parkway. The building is constructed of steel framing with a roof constructed of steel bar joists and metal deck. At each corner, a tower projects above the roof surface as an architectural feature. The towers and the wall framing supporting the brick are constructed of cold-formed metal studs.
The second building, currently out for bid, is a two-story steel-framed building. Even though the main frame of the building is steel, the developer requested wood floor framing and roof trusses in order to reduce cost. In addition, the exterior brick walls are supported by wood stud framing.
