The popularity of standing seam metal roof and wall systems is easy to understand because of their beauty, durability, energy efficiency and other factors. They evoke both the past and the present, offering a variety of colors and profiles to the discerning architect or specifier. But not all standing seam metal systems are created equal. The savvy specifier will understand both, what the panels are made of and how and where they are made. In addition, attention to delivery, storage and installation will play a part in a successful project. Finally, the warranty will provide least exposure and most assurance for an effective, long-lasting and aesthetically striking project.

Architects and designers enjoy the creative potential and customization of metal ceiling designs in commercial buildings. These systems can be specified for both interior and exterior applications and incorporated into all projects from airport terminals and train stations, to shopping malls and casino floors, to office lobbies and hospital corridors, to school classrooms and college stadiums.
Learn about the history of vegetated roofing, advancements in legislation, the numerous benefits of this type of roof system, the types of vegetated roofs, components of vegetated roof systems, and things to consider when thinking about installing a green roof.
This article will discuss the impact of more stringent and closely regulated building energy standards and codes on the building process—specifically, as they affect the envelope for metal buildings.
The course content will focus mainly on overall wall construction concepts and themes, rather than focusing on specific wall components, to help you grasp the principles of air and vapor barrier choice and design.
