Winston-Salem State University Hill Hall Student Success Center Ribbon Cutting

The Hill Hall Student Success Center Ribbon Cutting was held March 20, 2014 at 3:30 pm in the heart of Winston-Salem State University’s academic core. This was the first project completed by the joint venture Shelco, Inc. and R.J. Leeper Construction (Shelco/Leeper).

The Student Success Center is a 38,000 SF adaptive reuse of the Hill Hall science classroom building originally constructed on the campus in 1964. Clark Nexsen Architecture & Engineering’s design included stripping the building down to the existing concrete and steel structure, concrete floor systems, and roof systems and converting it to a state of the art academic Student Success Center. This CM at Risk project is seeking LEED Gold certification.

“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.”
