CGD Intern Matches Career High

By | News | No Comments

CGD Intern Cliff Hammonds plays for the 16th-ranked Clemson Tigers basketball team. On January 20, he connected on five 3-point shots, matching a career high. Four of the five were in the first half, helping Clemson go on to beat the Eagles by 20 points.

Hammonds is an architecture major at Clemson, and for the last two years, in the short gap between the end of school and the start of camps and other commitments, Hammonds has worked at Craig Gaulden Davis. He, like others interns starting their careers at CGD, is exposed to a range of project types and responsibilities.

President Ed Zeigler points out that “CGD looks for opportunities each summer to take on promising students in a professional environment. Cliff is one of a number of sharp young men and women that we’ve had the privilege to meet this way. I wish we could say we taught him how to shoot.”

A new library in Pendleton, South Carolina, designed by Craig Gaulden Davis, was dedicated and opened to the public January 14. Over 400 people attended the event.

The new 12,000 square foot facility is situated on a 4 acre site on Mechanic Street in Pendleton, SC. It is adjacent to the ruins of a 115-year-old house on the edge of an old growth forest. The property was made available to the County by a professor at nearby Clemson University.

Exterior views from the library focus on the forest and the ruins. CGD is working with the County to develop the ruins into an exterior historical exhibit and to design an outdoor amphitheater adjacent to the ruins that can be used for outdoor reading and performances.
