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.
