MBMA Publishes New Industry Practices Guidebook for Metal Buildings

Rezul News/10509209
CLEVELAND - Rezul -- mbma.com: The Metal Building Manufacturers Association (MBMA) has published a new guidebook, Common Industry Practices. This free publication, available for download at blog.mbma.com, provides an overview of standard practices for architects, engineers, owners, builders and manufacturers involved in metal building design and construction.

"The metal building industry has developed a set of standard practices over time that have become traditional in the building process," says Tony Bouquot, MBMA general manager. "It's important for everyone who works with a metal building to understand what these practices are and determine what their role should be. MBMA's new guide is a good place to start when someone is looking to purchase or construct a metal building."

Common Industry Practices is also intended to serve as a general checklist to assist with preparing the necessary documents that govern the metal building design and construction process. The guidebook consists of the following nine sections:

1.      Introduction
