MEDIA ADVISORY: MBMA 2012 Annual Report Now Available for Building Design and Construction Audiences

The Metal Building Manufacturers Association (MBMA) announces the release of its 2012 Annual Report, which gives built-design professionals helpful information about MBMA’s latest cutting-edge initiatives and programs.

Feb. 25, 2013 - PRLog -- The Metal Building Manufacturers Association (MBMA) has released its 2012 Annual Report, which highlights the research, industry advocacy, safety preparation and educational programs that the association has undertaken over the past year. The report is a valuable resource for those who work with metal building systems and is now available for free download at www.mbma.com.

“MBMA has long been recognized as the technical leader in the metal building systems industry, and the 2012 Annual Report details many of its cutting-edge initiatives and programs,” says Jeff Carmean, MBMA Chairman. “Over the course of the past year, MBMA has worked to educate buyers and specifiers about the green traits of metal buildings and has spent countless hours ensuring that the industry has a voice at the table as energy and sustainability codes are written and enforced.”

MBMA implemented or continued many research projects in 2012, often in coordination with major universities and engineering schools throughout North America. These are focused on important topics such as seismic effects on metal buildings and snow loads on solar panels and metal roofs. This annual report provides essential metal building systems information for owners, builders/contractors, architects, specifiers and code officials. New UL-rated fire assemblies were tested and approved, which will allow metal buildings to gain market advantages.

Founded in 1956, MBMA serves manufacturers and suppliers as it works to promote the metal building systems industry. Its membership represents more than $2.1 billion in annual steel shipments and accounts for approximately 49% of the total non-residential low-rise construction market in the United States.
