Design Process

During the design phase, you will want to achieve these goals:

  • Identify immediate and future needs
  • Develop your design team members
  • Select designers and/or engineer of record
  • Create concept design
  • Establish cost estimate
  • Confirm construction timetable
  • Define detailed design and ongoing design development

MBMA released a continuing education course, Creative Design Alternatives Using Metal Building Systems, which investigates the design potential to create low-rise, non-residential buildings of all types that use metal building packages or metal building components integrated with traditional construction. A PDF of this course is available here.
