Metromont Project Details

Project Overview

The second of two total precast concrete student housing projects completed for Pennsylvania State University at State College, The Standard at State College is a 16-story student housing tower located in the heart of State College, PA.

Originally envisioned as a cast-in-place project, the Standard was converted to a total precast solution that utilizes Metromont’s proprietary MetroDeck floor and ceiling system. Metromont’s Richmond, Virginia team produced nearly 280,000 SF of precast concrete for the project, which is located adjacent to The Metropolitan, Metromont’s first total precast off-campus student housing project for Penn State.

Working with owner and general contractor Landmark Properties and architect Cube 3 Studio LLC, Metromont developed a total precast design that complements the luxurious off-campus apartments and high-end amenities such as a second-floor terrace and pool deck, first and second-level retail, fitness center, and outdoor courtyards.

"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.”
