New Retrofit 'Microsite' Now Available From Metal Construction Association


9/20/2016

 Metal Construction Association (MCA) has added a new “Microsite” to its main website, expanding information available on Retrofit Metal Roof and Wall Systems, to assist architects and building designers considering renovating an older building. The information is available for free and includes many valuable resources for architects and specifiers including new white papers Benefits of Retrofit Roofing andEconomic Stimulus via Retrofit, a new case study about Ivy Tech Community College, plus information on the benefits, applications, and suppliers of metal retrofit systems. The Retrofit Microsite can found at http://www.metalconstruction.org/index.php/products/retrofit-walls-and-roofing 

“Just like we retrofit older buildings to make them new again, MCA and its members have worked hard to refresh the information available on Retrofit Metal Roof and Wall Systems to educate and inspire architects, buildings owners, and other specifiers” said Mark James, MCA’s Retrofit Council Executive Director. 

Retrofit metal systems have a wide range of design alternatives for existing roofs and walls. For roofs, they offer building owners and design professionals a multitude of choices ranging from low-slope functional systems for discharge or diversion of roof rainwater to high-slope architectural applications that upgrade the building’s aesthetic and appraised values. For walls, there are just as many material choices that can bring that architectural quality to the curb appeal of a building.
