The American Institute of Architects (AIA) mid-year Consensus Construction Forecast released in July projects that construction spending on nonresidential construction will increase 9.1 percent this year and another 6 percent in 2023.
One of the big attractions of insulated metal wall panels and roofing systems is that their typical life span can double some of the competing material.
Insulated metal panels (IMPs) can deliver a much longer service life than shingles, single-play, and built up roofing.
When designing and constructing buildings today extreme weather must be taken into consideration.
Just this summer, for example, the United States experienced a sweltering heat wave across the country plus four separate flooding events that each qualify as 1-in-1,000 year rainstorms.
Sherwin-Williams, the largest U.S.-based paint supplier, says that metal roofs with their combination of durability, strength, fire resistance, and architectural design are no longer just a choice for commercial projects.
Insulated metal panels (IMPs), with their energy efficiency and thermal performance, are still the go-to material for cold storage facility construction, but advances in IMP detailing by manufacturers and architects over the years now allows these systems to be used across a wider range of projects.
Insulated metal panels (IMPs) costs continue to stabilize, especially compared to the volatility of lumber prices, but inflation hurdles remain with overall construction prices up more than 20 percent year-over-year.
The United States is a big and beautiful country with nearly 100,000 miles of spectacular shoreline from sea to shining sea.
Life in coastal regions can be idyllic, though it is not always (with apologies to Jimmy Buffett!) just “strummin’ a six string on the on the front porch swing and smelling...
WALLER, TX (June 2, 2022) – Another industrial project is underway in Waller just north of Highway 290 where Green Span Profiles has embarked on the construction of a second manufacturing facility on its 33-acre campus at 21200 FM 362.
"Made in America" has taken on new meaning over the past two years as the world has grappled with a massive supply chain issue.
For the building industry this has translated into delayed projects as contractors await precious supplies from far-flung manufacturers that are stuck on cargo ships...

To weather watchers there seems to be two seasons in Florida: Hurricane Season and Preparing for Hurricane Season.
Florida Division of Emergency Management recently tweeted: “Hurricane season doesn’t begin until June 1 but @NHC_Atlantic is already tracking the first tropical wave of 2022.”
