Clancy & Theys partners with Reedy Creek Magnet Middle School to expand after-school robotics program

Digital Designers

Clancy & Theys will partner with Reedy Creek Magnet Middle School in Cary for the 2017-2018 school year, to expand the after-school robotics program. As a Robotics Club Sponsor, Clancy & Theys supports the students’ use of important STEM skills, as well as critical thinking and problem solving, to design, build and program their own robots from scratch.

During the 2016-2017 school year, Reedy Creek teamed up with Cyberkids Robotics to offer FIRST LEGO League (FLL) and FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) Robotics teams to its middle school students. The school competed against 20 other teams in RoboWake 2017, a local CyberKids event, earning the First Place Teamwork Award as well as the Overall Champions Award.

The partnership with Clancy & Theys will allow Reedy Creek to expand the after-school robotics program and continue its success. In addition to competing in FLL and FTC, Reedy Creek plans to add a CyberDrones team to its roster this year.


Harry McKinney, Clancy & Theys’ Director of Virtual Design and Construction, has teamed up with Reedy Creeks’ engineering and design faculty to create design lessons and modules for the program’s students. Together, they will lead students in an exploration of their own school building, while focusing on 3D modeling.

Through the after-school robotics program, students are exposed to the fundamentals of robot programming and emerging robotics technologies. Reedy Creek and Clancy & Theys hope to teach students real-world problem solving and applications of robotics technology.

The Christ Church Project Team receives Award

The Christ Church project team receives the Rehabilitation / Historic Preservation Award at the 2017 Sir Walter Raleigh Awards for Community Appearance

At the 2017 Sir Walter Raleigh Awards for Community Appearance on September 6, Clancy & Theys was honored to be a member of the project team which received the Rehabilitation / Historic Preservation Award for its work on the Christ Episcopal Church addition and renovation. Vice President of Construction Baker Glasgow and Director of Business Development Matt Chambers were present to watch members of the Christ Church Building Committee accept the award.
Located across the street from the State Capitol, Christ Church was founded as Raleigh’s first Episcopal church in 1821 and its sanctuary is one of three National Historic Landmarks in the city. Clancy & Theys started the church’s renovation and expansion project nearly two years ago, including expanding the parish hall and creating a larger entrance and gathering space. The Clancy & Theys project team included Baked Glasgow, Project Manager Tom Clancy, General Superintendent Alan Brinson and Superintendent Randy Wood.

As stated by the Raleigh Appearance Commission, the Sir Walter Raleigh Awards for Community Appearance recognize outstanding new contributions to the character, environment and appearance of the City of Raleigh. Specifically, the Rehabilitation / Historic Preservation Award is given for preservation or rehabilitation of existing buildings, especially Raleigh’s historic resources.

Since 1983, the Commission has presented more than 200 Sir Walter Raleigh Awards to developers, designers, building owners, community groups, civic clubs, churches, and citizens.

Looking Foward to the Future

The congregation of Trinity Baptist Church in Raleigh worshiped in their existing sanctuary for the last time on Sunday. They’ll move into their gym for about 16 months while their sanctuary is expanded and renovated by Clancy & Theys. A cheerful ceremony was held at the church as groups donned Clancy hardhats and turned the dirt– looking forward to the future.

A Visionary New Campus, Wake Technical Community College’s RTP Campus


Wake Tech, led by its President Dr. Stephen Scott, is one step closer to its visionary new campus that will be a beacon for business education in Research Triangle Park. Dr. Scott said, “This exciting new campus will provide education and training that matches the needs of local business and industry, while preparing students for employment in high-demand fields.” The WTCC RTP campus will support innovation and collaboration, with “beneficial collisions” of ideas and energy.  Classes in this new building will include business analytics, data storage, mobile applications, and continuing education classes that specifically relate to the businesses of corporations in the research triangle region. Program space includes classrooms, biology and chemistry labs, student services, library/media, information technology and associated offices.

This first building, the flagship of the new RTP campus, is nearly 110,000 sq ft and has a cantilevered marquee announcing “WTCC.” Fine finishes such as terrazzo floors and Rulon wall systems underscore the quality of a Class A environment for the students. Centering the building is a two-story atrium with a monumental staircase featuring glass handrails and terrazzo treads. The structure, constructed with steel frame and concrete slabs over a basement regional plant, will be skinned with brick, curtain wall, storefront, metal panels, and will have sunscreens.

Infrastructure includes extensive site work on the 26-acre site, parking, permanent storm water management structures, and a widening/improvements of NC 54 and Watkins Road (with traffic signals).  When completed, the building will serve as the regional plant to provide hot and chilled water for future buildings on campus—with (2) each cooling towers, chillers, and boilers with the capacity to add to the system in the future.  The building will also include underground runs of piping as well as a communications duct bank that will be extended past the building’s footprint, terminated, and capped for future campus development.

Designed by Perkins + Will, the construction will be managed by the joint venture of Clancy & Theys Construction Company and Holt Brothers Construction. There is a LEED goal for the classroom building, and the team is targeting a Gold or Platinum level.  Clancy & Theys’ Virtual Design and Construction Coordinator, Josh Siddle, will be coordinating mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection in a 3-D environment to expedite construction in the field. The construction management team has an inclusive plan to encourage and attain minority participation that exceeds the State’s goal for this project. #WaketechRTP
