Featured Project

Cabarrus County Schools | Roberta Road Middle School Concord, NC

Cabarrus County Schools awarded Shelco the District’s first facilities to be delivered using a CM at Risk contract. The 188,000 SF school features 400-seat auditorium, large open cafeteria with standard dining and café style seating, a large main gym and a supporting auxiliary gym for additional athletic events taking place. The classroom wing features a two-story structure housing 6th– 8th grade classrooms. The media center is located on the second level and will cantilever out over into the main common area with a curtain wall providing an abundance of natural light and visibility. The school includes 12 science rooms, four CTE classrooms including Life Skills, two technology classes and business/marketing class, as well as two EC classrooms, and an art room complete with a large storage space and a kiln room. The fine arts area features band, vocal and drama areas. The school was constructed using conventional structural steel framing, metal studs and drywall as well as load bearing masonry construction. The exterior veneer is a combination of masonry and insulated metal panels. The roof system is mainly flat with PVC material and an area of standing seam metal on the clear story structure. Roberta Road Middle School was completed on schedule.
