PRESS RELEASE: New Case Studies Available on MCA Website

CHICAGO, IL - March 30, 2018 - A hospital expands, a historic building goes green, a soccer club makes a statement, and a food storage facility survives a hurricane with the help of metal building materials. These and other case studies have been added to the 70+ case studies on the Metal Construction Association website at Examples of newer case studies available include:

Hardin Memorial Hospital in Elizabethtown, Kentucky was growing and needed more patient rooms, so the organization looked to expand. With the help of a lightweight metal wall system the designers were able to double the size of the expansion, gaining additional rooms from a limited footprint.

A retrofit of Lafayette College's historic Bushkill Commons in Easton, PA is an example of adaptive building reuse, utilizing sustainable design, products, and energy efficiency. Insulated metal wall panels were incorporated into the building to help achieve those objectives.

The Orlando City Soccer Club in Orlando, Florida wanted an intense and intimate stadium design that fit within the neighboring community. Structurally, the design team needed a material that provided lighter exterior cladding structural load that met R-values and lifespan requirements. Metal panels met the challenge.

Sterling Merchandising, a food storage facility in Bayamon, Puerto Rico was constructed with insulated metal roof and wall panels and survived the category four hurricane with no leaks and minimal damage.

"Our goal in featuring case studies from our members is to inspire and educate those in the building industry about how metal building materials have solved design, structural and environmental challenges," says Karl Hielscher, MCA Executive Director.

Case studies on the MCA website are searchable by the market, metal type, product type, key benefits, location and project type and include project details and photos.
