High Point University Patriots Plaza

Shelco completed the transformation of an existing parking lot in the center of the High Point University campus into an accessible green space featuring two (2) large high-end architectural fountains. The cascade fountain features four (4) pools tiered from the top of the site to the bottom, such that water cascades down over weirs from one basin to the next. This fountain features three (3) large geyser jets in the top pool and 56 arched jets spanning the sides of the other pools. The waterfall fountain features a circular pool at the top that creates a waterfall which feeds into a crescent pool below. The circular pool features a centered jet cluster which creates a vertical water column. Surrounding this column are nine (9) variable sequence jets which create a “dancing” water jet effect. Both of the fountains prominently feature many color-changing LED lights.

“I have had an extremely positive experience in all three of these major projects with Shelco and will continue to seek them out as future opportunities present themselves. They operate with a high level of integrity and trust which is so critical to us in a contractor relationship. They communicate well with the owner, architect and our employees who may be impacted by construction activity. From Shelco’s President to the on-site supervisor. I always felt I could access the appropriate level of management at any time. I highly recommend Shelco as a general contractor which should be obvious by our history of retaining them on successive projects and intent to continue the relationship in the future.”
