Project Description

The new Station at Mill Point housing complex at Elon University in Elon, North Carolina features 148,000 total square feet of metal roof panels from Metal Sales.

The Station at Mill Point’s 25 furnished buildings have the capacity to house 324 upperclassmen in a townhouse-style unit with a community amenities building. The residential village resembles a classic Charleston neighborhood with two-story buildings of different designs and color palettes, each topped with a Metal Sales roof. There are four types of residential buildings and each type earned LEED® for Homes Gold certification. 

“Our goal was to create a sense of community for the students and create spaces that encourage interaction,” says Carleton Collins, project architect for McMillan Pazdan Smith. 
 


The Station at Mill Point promotes community with welcoming front porches, wide sidewalks and first-class amenities. The Depot building in the complex provides upperclassmen with a fitness center, meeting rooms and social spaces along with an office for residence life staff. The 5,091-square-foot building is outfitted with a Metal Sales roof and was awarded LEED Silver certification.

“We needed a sustainable roofing material that provided unmatched durability and distinctive character,” says Collins. “The apartments in The Station at Mill Point feature different exterior design characteristics with unique colors and shapes. Furnishing each apartment building with a Metal Sales roof provided a common theme and consistency in the design.”

The 25 brightly-colored buildings in the development contains a total of 148,000 square feet of 24 gauge, 16” striated Magna-Loc standing seam roof panels from Metal Sales. The panels feature a PVDF (Kynar 500®) finish in Dark Bronze for the residential buildings and Classic Green for the Depot building.

“The installation of 25 metal roofs at The Station at Mill Point went smoothly and met all deadlines,” says Danny Henson, Vice President at Henson & Associates Inc. who served as the roofing installer. “Metal Sales was a big help in ensuring the job was a success. They provided a high-quality product and were available for assistance when we needed them.”

Elon University is committed to sustainability and has a green building policy. Metal panels optimize energy efficiency by reflecting a significant amount of solar heat energy and reducing the amount of energy needed for cooling. The Metal Sales panels have a long life span, are 100% recyclable, and contain a high percentage of recycled material – all contributing to LEED points.
