Featured Project

HopeWay – Charlotte, NC

HopeWay is an accredited nonprofit residential and day treatment facility offering a wide range of mental health services to those in need. The HopeWay Foundation mission to provide access to effective mental health care and education is encouraging! Shelco was inspired by their vision and negotiated in our contract “In Kind” donations. The 53,000 SF renovation project included a resident wing, education center, meditation rooms, consultation rooms and treatments areas. We also constructed a full-service kitchen with cafeteria and renovated the existing 14,000 SF gymnasium and locker room. We were thrilled to be the general contractor for this project and had the opportunity to help our community.
