Metromont Project Details

Project Overview

The Standard at Atlanta is a mixed-use student housing development that serves the undergraduate and graduate student population in Midtown Atlanta.

The 19-story, high-rise tower includes 257 units furnished residential units with a mix of studios, one, two, three, four and five bedroom units.

Metromont was engaged by the building owner and contractor to provide cladding for the 19-story cast-in-place tower. Rather than using standard precast concrete cladding, Metromont incorporated its proprietary M-Shell system. This lightweight system, ideal for high rise construction, is comprised of a 2 ½” concrete face with 6″ of light gage metal studs. The M-Shell panels were sprayed with closed cell insulation in the plant or field. To ensure the panels are continuously insulated, a small gap is left between the steel back and concrete face to allow space for insulation.

Metromont was contracted to engineer and construct the total precast concrete mid-rise structure and 10-story parking garage with a rooftop pool which was completed in spring of 2019.

"Metromont was an excellent partner and worked seamlessly, closely to collaborate almost as an extension of our design team. It’s incredible how quickly it all came together.”

"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.”
