Today’s architects’ have a wealth of building options to choose from, though metal has become a hot commodity for a broad spectrum of projects whether they are full-on metal or hybrid construction.  So, why are more designers choosing metal?  Because it is sustainable, versatile, durable, energy-efficient, eco-friendly, affordable, beautiful and presents a multitude of exciting solutions.

Because architects play such a critical role in the design and build process, METALCON is thrilled to announce a new program at this year’s show called, “The Architect’s Experience at METALCON.” We are currently working with two leading companies in education and training for architects to deliver a combined education and exhibit floor experience exclusively for architects. Help spread the word to the architect community – invite your architect colleagues to join us at METALCON 2020.

Here are some great resources where architects can learn more about the metal building industry including:

Metal Construction Association’s Continuing Education for Architects including courses (some are CEU earning) such as: “A Primer on Metal Composite Material (MCM),” “Show Your Mettle: Designing with Metal Brings Durability, Energy Savings, and Cost Efficiency Together,” or “Insulated Metal Panels: An All-In-One Air and Water Barrier.” Click HERE to view the full list of available courses.
