Over the past month, Pedrick’s Garden at Falls Park has received the South Carolina American Society of Landscape Architects President’s Award of Excellence and the Architectural Precast Association’s Design & Manufacturing Award in the trim and landscape category; The Rudy Bruner Award for Urban Excellence – Silver Medal was bestowed upon Falls Park as a whole. Working alongside city officials and planners, landscape architects, engineering consultants, philanthropists, and artisans, CGD is honored to have played a role in bringing to fruition one of the region’s most lauded urban parks.
A lost-but-found memento of CGD’s distant (from a millennial’s perspective) past was brought to the attention of all at the office this past week. A friend of CGD principal and vice president Scott Powell found THIS newsletter while cleaning out an old desk. It recounts the anticipated groundbreaking of the Greenville County Museum of Art, a project that affirmed CGD’s then burgeoning reputation as a leading design firm in South Carolina. Coincidentally, the newsletter is addressed to CGD co-founder Kirk Craig, as the desk in which it sat for years was purportedly once his own.
