Metromont Wins Big at 2021 Georgia ACI Awards

Congratulations to Metromont’s Hiram, GA team on receiving multiple awards at this year’s ACI GA Chapter Design Awards!

Metromont received first place in the structural and architectural precast category for 10,000 Avalon Office Building and Parking Garage, a 10-story core-and-shell Class A office building consisting of approximately 254,898 rentable square feet of office space and an accompanying seven-level, 241,054-SF stand-alone precast concrete parking garage. Metromont provided 42,710 SF of architectural precast cladding with a medium sandblast finish and cast-in thin brick from Endicott Brick for the office building. The Endicott thin brick and medium sandblast were also used for the parking garage exterior.

An American Concrete Institute Georgia Chapter 2021 Award of Excellence winner in the Mid-Rise category, the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) Administrative Support Office Building I is an eight-level mid-rise structure located at the Children’s Healthcare North Druid Hills campus in Atlanta, Georgia. The first of two new administrative buildings constructed at that location as part of CHOA’s new Support Center, the office building was constructed from cast-in-place concrete with 62,800-SF of 10” thick architectural precast concrete cladding produced by Metromont’s Hiram, GA manufacturing facility, and features an exterior façade with thin brick and a wood texture form liner.

An Outstanding Achievement award-winner in the Parking Garage category of the American Concrete Institute Georgia Chapter’s 2021 Awards, the City of Buford’s new four-level parking deck was designed to serve the growing need for parking in Buford’s expanding downtown area. Produced at Metromont Corporation’s Hiram, GA plant, the new 60,234-SF precast deck provides 256 spaces for visitors to downtown Buford. A pedestrian bridge links the deck to Harris Street and ultimately, to Main Street, giving visitors convenient access to the downtown area. The structure’s thin-brick façade replicates the classic brick-and-stone architecture found throughout the city.

Metromont and its customers were recognized at ACI Georgia’s Dan R. Browns Awards Banquet on August 12.  Congratulations again to our Hiram on this outstanding achievement!
