MBMA Releases How It's Built Video
"By taking the viewer through the entire building process," says Tony Bouquot, MBMA general manager, "the video shows what makes a metal building unique and why these buildings are so popular. It starts with how the parts are made, which leads to the speed of construction and lower overall costs. It also shows some of the additional benefits of metal buildings, such as high levels of insulation and long-lasting metal roofs."
"How It's Built" starts with a brief introduction to metal buildings and their components and summarizes steps in the construction of a new building. It moves on to a detailed look at the fabrication and erection process of an automobile dealership, showing each major step along the way—from the manufacturing facility to the final detailing at the job site. These steps include:
There is also a brief introduction to the International Accreditation Service (IAS) AC472 and AC478 accreditation programs for metal building manufacturers and metal building assemblers. The video finishes with a look at the completed building and includes interviews with the vehicle dealership's contractor and building owner.
In addition to "How It's Built," approximately 30 videos are available to view for free at MBMA's YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/
