MEDIA ADVISORY: MBMA 2013 Annual Report Now Available for Building Design and Construction Audiences
The Metal Building Manufacturers Association (MBMA) announces the release of its 2013 Annual Report, which gives built-design professionals helpful information about MBMA’s latest cutting-edge initiatives and programs.
Transforming the concept of metal buildings
“MBMA has long been recognized as the technical leader in the metal building systems industry, and the 2013 Annual Report details many of its cutting-edge initiatives and programs,” says Brad Robeson, MBMA Chairman. “Over the course of the past year, MBMA has worked to educate buyers and specifiers about the sustainable green attributes of metal building systems, and has spent countless hours ensuring that the industry has a voice at the table as building, energy and sustainability codes and standards are written and enforced.”
MBMA implemented or continued many research projects in 2013, 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. The information detailed in 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 $2.2 billion in annual steel shipments and accounts for approximately 49% of the total non-residential low-rise construction market in the United States.
