High Point University Caine Conservatory is Complete

We recently completed the Donald R. & Teresa B. Caine Conservatory building on High Point University’s campus. The two side-by-side, 147’ long, Neo-Classical Georgian-Style ornate facilities connected with a 15’ wide, 2,293 SF open air Loggia with an ice melt system under the slate avers. The class room building, consists of 7,364 SF of interior space with three porches totaling 1,153 SF. It includes classrooms, full service kitchen, serving area, dining area, offices and a “Head House” area for the Conservatory. The Conservatory consists of 8,135 SF and includes two greenhouses on the wings separated with an internal glass wall.

We appreciate all of the hard work from Mercer Architecture, the High Point University staff and all of our subcontractors!


“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.”
