Metromont Project Details

Project Overview

Located in the dynamic South End area of Charlotte, North Carolina, the Hawk is a 13-story apartment tower that features 71 luxury apartments as well as retail space.

Faced with the challenge of constructing a 13-story building on a .359-acre jobsite, the developer turned to precast concrete to provide the ideal building system for this urban setting. The Hawk has the distinction of being one of the first high-rise total precast structures in the Carolinas. While cast-in-place concrete is typically the construction method used for high-rise apartment buildings, the use of precast resulted in significant cost savings and saved the developer approximately six months in construction time on the project.

Metromont utilized its proprietary MetroDeck total precast system for the floors and exterior walls, its Greenville plant producing nearly 93,000 square feet of total precast components for the project. Designed primarily to serve the multi-family and student housing markets, the MetroDeck system provides the inherent durability and fire-resistant traits of precast concrete with integrated insulation and finishes. The use of precast also resulted in a tighter building envelope, which contributes to more efficient heating and cooling, and reduces noise transfer.

The Hawk has the distinction of being one of the first high-rise, total precast structures in the Carolinas.

"The precast concrete design was able to meet the stringent performance requirements of the structure while providing an aesthetically pleasing, sustainable final product at an affordable price point."

"Metromont’s team embraced our idea and got their whole team on board. It’s one thing for sales managers to want to make architects happy, but to have the plant manager, the finishing crew foreman and engineers fully engaged is something else. Metromont was extremely cooperative – the project was a win-win for everyone.”
