Metcon Inc. and South Carolina Occupational Safety and Health Administration (SC OSHA) have entered into a limited partnership to provide the safest possible work environment for subcontractors on their project site. The partnership will also provide incentives to participating contractors to voluntarily improve their safety and health performance. Incentives will include, but are not limited to, recognition from SC OSHA that will allow limited scope inspections. 

This partnership is consistent with SC OSHA’s long range efforts to develop partnerships within the construction industry. It allows for better use of SC OSHA resources, innovation in safety management, and it encourages active participation in the safety process on the part of construction/trade association communities. 

The project includes five Energy Positive schools for the Horry County School (HCS) District. The schools are the first of their kind in South Carolina and are the stepping stones to bring all K-12 educational buildings up to 21st Century learning standards. Extensive use of glass and open collaboration spaces will provide Horry County Schools with world class learning environments for generations to come. The truly exceptional part of this project is that they will have no utility bills and will create more energy than they consume. This is made possible through roof top solar arrays, cutting edge building management software, geothermal well fields, centralized energy plants, and the newest lines in light emitting diode (LED) lighting.
