The Metal Construction Association (MCA) is proud to announce its new website: www.metalconstruction.org. If you’ve been following The Metal Initiative (the former name of this blog, and its home website) you’ll notice that we still have the same goal: to be the go-to resource for information and education about metal roofs and wall panels.

Visit the new site, and you’ll find:

  • Case Study Gallery – Be inspired by real-world case studies about how architects and building owners have used metal to solve design challenges and build high-performing buildings.New case studies are added every month.
  • Photo Gallery – MCA’s expanded photo gallery features dozens of projects, including commercial, municipal, education, healthcare, and more. Photos from hundreds more projects will be added in the coming weeks.
  • Technical Resources – MCA is the leading source of technical resources for the metal construction industry, including white papers, technical bulletins and technical manuals. The section will be updated regularly.

MCA is also working to re-launch its Ask the Experts forum in the coming weeks, and will be building out a new Members’ Only section for MCA members.

Be sure to visit MCA’s new website, and bookmark it to check back for more information and resources.

Editor’s Note: Change Is in the Air

Coming Soon: A New Metal Construction Association Website

By: John Ryan, Metal Construction Association

Change is good. And you’ll soon see a lot of changes to The Metal Initiative’s blog and website.

We are excited to announce that The Metal Initiative (TMI) will be relocating to Metal Construction Association’s (MCA’s) new website, which is scheduled to launch later this month. You’ll start to see the look and feel of this blog change over the coming days, and it will be retitled as the Metal Construction Association blog. You’ll still find the same insights, news and information here, so we hope you’ll continue to follow us, and check out the new website later this month at http://www.metalconstruction.org, as well.

A little background: The Metal Initiative (TMI) was created in 2007 as the market development arm of the Metal Construction Association. Recently the association decided to discontinue the TMI brand, and fold all market development initiatives (including The Metal Initiative’s website and blog) underneath the MCA brand. As part of this initiative, earlier this year MCA introduced a new tagline–Build Legacies: Metal–that will be a focus of the association’s brand going forward.

In short, we’re not changing who we are or what we do, we’re just realigning and simplifying our brand in an effort to increase clarity and eliminate confusion. You can still count on the Metal Construction Association to be the leading source for innovation, information and education about metal walls and roofs.

We hope you’ll stay connected with MCA via this blog, Facebook, LinkedIn, and of course the new website. We are excited about this new beginning, and look forward to continuing to provide relevant and inspiring information about metal construction!
