Many people think of humble warehouses when they hear the term, “metal building,” but metal buildings are not limited to boxy designs. However, metal buildings range in both design and materials used to construct them.

This course will introduce you to the elements of metal building systems and the flexible design options that enhance the aesthetic look and feel of the building. In addition, the course will demonstrate how metal buildings are resilient against high-wind events.

  • Examine the elements of metal building systems.
  • Explore the flexible design options available with metal building systems.
  • Describe how wind forces act on buildings during high-wind events.
  • Analyze the impact metal building systems can have to create a more resilient community.
