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.
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...
Insulated metal panels (IMPs) shine brightest when it comes to energy efficiency with their built-in insulation, high R-values, low thermal conductivity, and all-in-one air, water, and vapor barrier.
IMPs are not only a green solution that can help your building qualify for LEED certification, but...
“What are the costs?”
This is usually the bottom-line question building owners ask prior to every new project, but maybe the question should really be:
“What are the true costs?”
The demand for large-scaled cold storage is growing at a rapid clip across multiple industries from ports to cities in both retail and industrial space.
“Cold storage forms an important part of the logistics supply chain,” said the “Cold Storage Construction – Global Market Trajectory & Analytics”...
Insulated metal panels (IMPs) have been an option to builders for decades, but recent technology and design developments have turned IMPs from an alternative to a mainstream choice in building construction.
“Recent improvements in the metal panel manufacturing process have resulted in a wider...
