METALCONLive! made a robust return this week with a peek into the “future.” Normally we would be gathering for the annual, in-person event this month — METALCONLive! makes it possible to be together “virtually.” As Director Judy Geller said in her opening remarks, “We can’t have our live event as usual, but that doesn’t mean we have abandoned our mission of bringing together buyers, sellers, manufacturers and suppliers of metal for use in design and construction.”
Moderator, Frank Stasiowski, FAIA and METALCON Co-Founder in partnership with the Metal Construction Association, along with a “blue-ribbon” panel of experts, tackled the issues surrounding market changes for the construction and metal construction industry, and what to expect heading into next year.
Panelists included Tony Bouquot, General Manager, Metal Building Manufacturers Association (MBMA), Paul Giovannoni,Managing Director, FMI Corporation, and Alan Scott,FAIA, LEED Fellow, Senior Consultant, Building Science Solutions…
The updated design for Salk MIddle School in Spokane, Washington not only had to be energy efficient, it had to have a design that appealed to the community and to the students walking its halls. Insulated Metal Panels provide an A+ solution across the board.
Some MCM materials are offered in transitional finishes which celebrate the natural color shifts. For this project, the glass changes colors, so why not use metal panels that do the same? The result is an impressive spectrum of beauty and sheen.
NEW STANDARDS FOR SAFER ROOFING APPLICATION: GET IN ON THE FORTIFIED HOME PROGRAM

MCA have written several technical bulletins that assert that metal is no more likely to attract lightning than other roofing material. The surrounding area’s topography, the building’s size and height, and the area’s frequency and severity of storms are all factors regarding lightning. In a press release last year, MCA even determined, “As a noncombustible material, a metal roof may even be a more desirable construction option.”
Is there a more apt month to earn Continuing Education credits? This new primer explains what a metal composite material (MCM) is, how it’s produced, and discusses options for MCM skins, including finishes, materials, and specifications.
