CNH Architects designed a 129,000 sf self-storage facility for Metro Self Storage in Coon Rapids. It’s the first of Metro’s storage facilities to be built with CNH’s innovative design. This prototype design features the use of precast concrete panels and metal bar joists for the structure and envelope of the building. They are 903 storage units in total.
Incorporating these materials accelerated construction and allowed for multiple sizes of units throughout the building. Time spent under construction for the facility was one year. This meaning completion time was significantly faster than previous facilities using metal stud framing.
With storage facilities throughout the country, Metro Self Storage is adopting CNH’s design in future projects.
