Metcon Construction Manager for First LEED Building in Robeson County

Robeson County’s Department of Social Services Building recently received a LEED Silver Certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.  It is the first LEED certified facility in the county.

Some of the “green building” or sustainable design features used in the development of the project were water efficient landscaping, light pollution reduction, maximization of open space, and regional/recycled materials. 

The $19,000,000 project located at 120 Glenn Cowan Road in Lumberton, NC houses DSS administrative staff, a Juvenile Court, a training room with 400 seats, and is used for all Robeson County administrative trainings. 

The project consisted of three separate wings connected by curtain walls and steel bridge. The building is constructed out of structured steel and brick veneer with a standing seam metal roof. 

Metcon was proud to provide construction management services for this project. 




LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a leading-edge system for certifying high performance buildings and sustainable neighborhoods. 

LEED certification provides independent, third-party verification that a building, home or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at achieving high performance in key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.
