Located in Davie, FL, the seven-level NOVA Southeastern University Residence Hall project was converted from an original design of cast-in-place with block and stucco to a total precast mid-rise structure incorporating Metromont’s MetroDeck floor system, which was used because of its low profile to create a higher finished ceiling.

The continuously insulated, loadbearing wall panels include integral architectural colors, four architectural sandblast finishes, and a formliner to create a unique look that complements the surrounding buildings while taking advantage of lower life-cycle costs. Metromont produced 315,000 SF of MetroDeck System for the project.

One of the key advantages of the MetroDeck system was speed of construction. The NOVA Southeastern University Residence Hall project was constructed in just 14 months from contractor mobilization to student move-in.
