Our Culture

As our office open-floor plan suggests, collaboration and teamwork are essential to the success of GDC. We have found that when we bounce ideas and contribute our expertise, we push each other to create the best designs and solutions for our clients and communities. We regularly take field trips to spatially experience and discuss what works – or doesn’t work – and incorporate what we learn into our designs. Communication and teamwork are key!

This spirit of engagement extends beyond the office walls. We work hard, but we also know how to play hard. At the end of a hard week of planning and designing, we eat “Friday lunches” together. We look forward to celebrating birthdays, office outings, and our much-anticipated Christmas parties. Our down-to-earth company culture ensures that we have fun while we get things done!

Nick Bevis

Project Designer

Nick was born and raised on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. He graduated from Mississippi State University in 2019 with a bachelor’s degree in landscape architecture. Throughout his time in school, he worked different summer jobs/internships from residential design and installation to maintenance. He even got to spend a summer at Disney World working in the horticulture department. Shortly after graduation, he found himself starting his career back out in Orlando, Florida. Working on projects from single/multi-family communities to healthcare. Involved in the design process from conceptual design all the way to construction documentation.

Nick found his love for design in high school. In the process of searching for a design-based majors, like architecture and building construction science, he stumbled upon landscape architecture. After speaking with the Dean of Students and touring their facilities, he really saw this a unique approach to art and design. He saw landscape architecture as the ability to create safe spaces for people to enjoy. In life gets hard on everyone, so we all need that place to get away from everything and just enjoy the outdoors.

Nick spends his free time being active from exploring the city, checking out local restaurants and parks, to playing sports, like golf, soccer, and tennis. Nick also enjoys getting together with friends and family to watch live music or cheer on the Mississippi StateBulldogs.

By applying the principals of design with technical craft, Connor aspires to uphold truth, beauty, and goodness in all that he does.
