The Metal Cladding and Roofing Manufacturers Association (MCRMA) has published a new guidance document. This is entitled GD39 Sustainability and durability of metal roofing and cladding systems.
The guidance document focuses on sustainability from a ‘fabric first’ approach. This is where the metal building envelope provides a long-lasting solution which can be future proofed for potential changes of use of the building.
As there is a natural split between sustainability and durability topics, the MCRMA guidance document is published as a suite of eight standalone sections.
Each of these cover specific but interrelated subjects, including…
– sustainability background
– zero avoidable waste
– environmental assessment methods
– life cycle/whole life costing
– products and components
The documents can be downloaded from the MCRMA website at https://mcrma.co.uk/sustainability/
