Scott Simmons, Partner at Craig Gaulden Davis, will join two other South Carolina Architects in reviewing and recognizing exemplary work of North Carolina Architects. The AIA North Carolina’s Tower Awards recognize “… well-designed projects by AIANC members that exemplify historic preservation and adaptive reuse in renovation, restoration or rehabilitation of a historic structure; new / infill construction within a historic context; or a new construction addition to a historic structure.”
Scott brings to the jury his experience of working on numerous historic buildings, many on national and state historic registers. He began his career in architecture serving as a summer intern for the Historic American Buildings Survey and has worked on projects listed on the National Register of Historic Places in SC, NC, and VA. These include:
Abbeville Opera House, Abbeville, SC
Paris Mountain State Park Historic District, Greenville County, SC
Tullyton, Greenville County, SC
Episcopal Church of the Incarnation, Highlands, NC
Emory& Henry College, Emory, VA
Most of CGD’s projects involve renovation or re-use of existing structures in some way. The Architects of CGD believe that taking care of buildings built by previous generations and re-using them today is an important way to preserve our history and values, while sustainably enriching our built environment.
