Merchants & Marine Bank
New Main Bank and Operations Center
Pascagoula, MS 

Merchants & Marine Bank is the only locally owned bank in Jackson County. ICT provided MPE and fire protection design services for this 40,000 SF, two-story financial institution. During construction, Hurricane Katrina heavily damaged the site, and the building was redesigned to move all electrical and mechanical equipment to the second floor to withstand any future flooding.
