McKinney Insulation Elon University North Carolina

The McKinney team completed the insulation of the three-story, 30,000-square-foot building.

Elon University is a private university in Elon, North Carolina that has been serving the community since its founding in 1889.

Elon is organized into six schools, most of which offer bachelor’s degrees and several of which offer master’s degrees or professional doctorate degrees.

Recently the team at McKinney Insulation completed the insulation of the massive Richard W. Sankey Hall building which is three stories tall and covers 30,000 square feet.

Built on what was the north end of the McMichael Science Center parking lot, Sankey Hall is home to the Doherty Center for Creativity, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship, the Chandler Family Professional Sales Center, a Design Thinking Center, and Financial Education Center — all programs and facilities that serve students in every major, school and college.

The building offers new classroom and office space, along with a wealth of spaces for students and faculty to come together and collaborate.

The insulation project was spearheaded by industry veteran Austin McNeal, who serves as the Chief Sales Officer of McKinney Insulation.

McKinney Insulation Owner and President Rick McKinney expressed immense gratitude to be selected for such a large and important project.

“It was a huge honor to get a phone call and be trusted by such a well-known and respected institution as Elon University. Being part of something special, such a large project, and for such an important facet of our state and local community is a great feeling for our team,” said McKinney.

In his remarks, donor and son of the building’s namesake Jim Sankey said the new building will undoubtedly help instill in the students it serves the values that made his father the man he was.

Sankey stated that his father believed in entrepreneurship and the free enterprise system, and was not afraid to take risks. He believed in treating everyone honestly and fairly and in setting a good example for his children and for his employees.

“I hope these are the same types of values that this business school teaches these students for many years to come,” Sankey said. “The Sankey family is really proud to be a part of this. We love the university and wanted to be able to give something back.”
