Metcon brought home the Eagle Award for two new energy positive schools built in Wayne County. Grantham and Spring Creek Middle schools total over 182,000 s.f and are the 2nd and 3rd energy positive schools delivered in the Carolinas. Construction simultaneously started in July 2014 and was completed in August 2015 with an on-time delivery! Metcon Inc./T.A. Loving were the general contractors for these two buildings.

The Excellence in Construction Awards celebration honors the nation's most innovative and high quality construction projects, safety programs and diversity programs. This is Metcon’s second “Eagle” award in three years.

Spring Creek MS serves 650 students with the capacity for 800. Grantham MS serves 650 students, with a capacity for 800, allowing future expansion. Each grade level is housed in a separate academic wing, accessed from a small commons. Many of the primary functions, such as the cafeteria, media center, and gymnasium are opened up to the main corridor with floor-to-ceiling glass walls.

These energy positive schools will combine energy conserving building practices with on-site renewable energy generation to produce 40% more energy than the annual operation of each school requires. Each building is equipped with approximately 2,400 roof-mounted photovoltaic solar panels oriented for optimum solar gain. Additional innovative features in each middle school include geothermal heating and cooling systems, LED lighting, dynamic air cleaning system, spray foam insulation and advanced building
