Waverly Place Office Building

Construction Type: Steel & Masonry

Service Performed: Turnkey Building & Sitework

Waverly Office Building is a three story 40,000 square foot Class A office building. On the first floor there is a structured parking deck with a two story entry lobby and two small retail spaces. The second and third floors are currently used as office and educational space.
Confronted with a very challenging site, the owner turned to Metrocon for advice on designing and constructing the building while maintaining the parking and setback requirements of the municipality. The result is a showcase building in an established yet changing part of Cary. The building is home to Cary Travel and the Wake Technical Community College’s Center for Business and Technology, both built by Metrocon, among others.

Morrisville Commerce Center

Construction Type: New Conventional Steel Construction

Service Performed: New Turnkey Building

The Morrisville Commerce Center, located on Town Hall Drive in Morrisville, is the new home of the Morrisville Chamber of Commerce and Stewart Engineering.  Metrocon used the Design Build approach for the 23,000 square foot office building.  The Chamber of Commerce purchased their portion of the building from the developer, SEI Properties, while the balance of the building is lease space.

The building, designed by Cline Design Associates, now houses the Morrisville Chamber of Commerce, the Town of Morrisville Building Department, Parks and Recreation, as well as the majority tenant, Stewart Engineering.  The construction is conventional steel with a brick and EIFS face.

The Prairie Building

Construction Type: Historic Renovation

Service Performed: Interior Fit-up

Located in Downtown Raleigh, the Prairie Building is a 15,000 square foot, three-story historic landmark. The project was bid competitively to the Downtown Housing Investment Corporation. Administrative offices are housed on the first floor with two levels of low-income apartments above. A former retail space, the entire place was gutted, a new elevator added, and completely brought up to current code. Many unique details of this circa1870’s building were preserved during the renovation, including the original tin ceilings and wood floors.
The collaboration between Metrocon and the designers resulted in a positive step in the revitalization of Downtown Raleigh. Amid the unforeseen conditions inherent in the renovation of an older structure, Metrocon successfully overcame the challenges and brought new life to a classic building.

NC Academy of Physician Assistants

Construction Type: Steel & Masonry

Service Performed: Turnkey Building & Site work

There was no place more fitting to build the new Training and Events Center for the growing North Carolina Academy of Physician Assistants than in the “City of Medicine” itself Durham, North Carolina. Similarly the board of NCAPA felt there was no builder more fitting than Metrocon to deliver a building that would meet the high demands of the only facility of its kind in the State.

This state of the art facility hosts dividable Training Rooms, a full service Kitchen, fire resistant Archives Room, Library and Conference Room not to mention and a relaxing well-appointed garden. The Eugene A. Stead Center has raised the level of services offered to its members and provides ongoing career and industry development in the field of Physician’s Assistant Medicine.

Timber Drive Office Building

Construction Type: Metal Stud / Wood Truss and Masonry

Service Performed: Turnkey Building and Sitework

Garner businesses were in need of office space and having a parcel of land in the area, Centrex Properties was in need of a builder. With the help of the 17,000 sf Timber Drive Commons office center project, both needs were fulfilled. The two-building project was designed with modularity and flexibility in mind. Using architectural entry elements, the building entry facades are broken into separate entries giving the occupants their own bit of identity. These structures attempt to fit with the contextual style of the blended residential and commercial character of the vicinity.
The project was completed with high standards of quality and under the project budget. Interior build-outs are filling the interior with businesses ranging from dentists offices to real estate agencies.
