Metcon won “Best Project” in the (K-12 Education) category for the two new “Energy Positive” middle schools in Goldsboro, NC.  The awards honor the best construction projects in the Southeast, which are judged using five criteria: safety, innovation, teamwork, quality and functionality.

 

Metcon|TA Loving a Joint Venture was selected as the Construction Manager at Risk for the  simultaneous delivery of the two energy positive middle schools for Wayne County Public Schools.  Grantham and Spring Creek Middle schools are the 2nd and 3rd energy positive schools delivered in the Carolinas. The projects were delivered as a program for Wayne County schools, and were only viable for the County due to the cost savings associated with the program delivery.  The schools consist of world class energy positive features that will allow them to generate more energy than they consume.  Both schools were completed in August 2015.
