Founding Director / Architect
In our experience in the construction industry, we have found that the most successful projects occur when clients, architects, and contractors work together as a team. Our role is to listen to the client, to come to an understanding of the client’s needs, and to use our knowledge and our design talents to address those needs. A successful architect-client relationship begins with the right people. The staff of PryorMorrow offers more than 200 years of combined experience in the fields of architecture, engineering, interior design, and construction. The diversity of the staff allows us to create the right project team for every job. We are large enough to complete your job competently, but we are small enough to offer the level of personal attention your project deserves.
Our in-house engineering staff is an essential component of our practice. We provide in-house mechanical and electrical engineering, which is one of the elements that allows our firm to complete projects on time by streamlining technical discussions during design. When a project requires specialized consultants, we have working relationships with several from which to choose, based on the needs of the design. Our in-house staff helps us integrate engineering as a vital component of technically advanced design.
PryorMorrow offers a full range of interior design services. Our interior designer is available to work hand-in-hand with our clients to take a project from an idea to reality. Our interior design team has worked with clients on a full range of interior design projects, from basic finish selection to complete interior design concepts and furniture procurement. Our interior design projects include the award-winning G.W. Henderson Health and Wellness Pavilion in Tunica, the award-winning Center for Manufacturing Technology Excellence at EMCC, The Orchard United Methodist Church in Tupelo, the Oxford Heart Clinic, and the Gilmore Medical Arts Building.
At PryorMorrow, we understand that the job is not finished when the design is complete – the job is finished when the owner takes possession of a quality building. Thus, our final product is not a set of blueprints, but rather a building – and this is why construction administration is a vital part of our service. PryorMorrow employs three full-time construction administrators and one construction administration assistant. These men and women bring over eighty years of experience from the construction industry to the project.
Forensic Study/Master Planning
PryorMorrow is dedicated to the rehabilitation and adaptive reuse of existing structures. After years of heavy use, windows and crumbling brick facade required repair, and the building’s exterior becomes in need of a facelift. Many of our building plans are created for multiphase renovations and additions. This long-term approach allows clients to prioritize renovations and plans for the future. PryorMorrow works with the client to prepare a building plan that fits within the budget restraints and also serves the needs of the client.
PryorMorrow has partnered with TVA and Atmos Energy to bring savings directly to the customer. Ashley Weekly, PE, BEAP, brings over ten years’ experience in the efficient design of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems to you. Our in-house engineering team understands that maintenance and energy efficiency are vital to the life cycle cost of the project and far exceed the initial construction cost. PryorMorrow is committed to improving the quality of construction projects as well as the environment in which they are situated.
