The Metal Building Manufacturers Association (MBMA) has developed a comprehensive Energy Code Compliance webinar that will educate the metal building specifiers, contractors and builders on how to navigate and utilize today’s energy codes and standards as they apply to metal building systems, and incorporate the MBMA Energy Design Guide for Metal Building Systems. This webinar helps participants understand how to design, construct, and maintain metal buildings to be energy efficient.

Webinar dates for 2012 are:

March 20
April 17
May 22
June 19

“Most municipalities in the United States have adopted an energy code and standard. It’s wise to be informed and up-to-date,” says Charles Praeger, MBMA’s assistant general manager.

Some of the topics that will be covered are design responsibilities, how to navigate and apply energy code and standard requirements such as prescriptive and performance base methods for conditioned and semi-heated buildings, and practical applications such as the different ways metal buildings are insulated.

Instructors from the Metal Building Manufacturers Association are Jay D. Johnson, LEED AP, director of architectural services and Dan J. Walker, P.E., senior staff engineer.

The Energy Code Compliance webinars are one-hour sessions start at 2:00 Eastern Time and include an additional 15-minute Q&A period at the end of each presentation. Enrollment for these and other MBMA webinars is available on the sign-up page in the bookstore section of the MBMA webpage, www.mbma.com. Enrollment for the Energy Code Compliance webinar is $135 per person.
