Sustainable Buildings

The MBMA is dedicated to Sustainable Building and the practice of reducing the impact on human health and environment through better site selection, design, construction, operation, maintenance and ultimate removal- the complete Building Life Cycle.

Metal Buildings are energy efficient and sustainable.  Right now, you can learn all about Cool Metal Roofing on this site and how it can help reduce heat island effect and provide high reflectivity and emissivity. That means saving you energy costs over the long term.

Check back soon to see how MBMA addresses energy codes and standards as they apply to metal buildings systems, Energy Star, the Cool Roofing Rating Council, California Title 24, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), sustainability and other environmental concerns.

MBMA recently published the Energy Design Guide for Metal Building Systems. This design guide is the best resource available for information about energy efficient options and metal buildings. For more information and to order your own copy, click here.
