Survey: Architectural metal off to a strong start in 2017

Apr 27, 2017

There is good news for the metal construction industry. The year 2016 saw increased activity and expansion, according to the 31st Annual Metal Architectural Architects Survey recently published in Metal Architecture magazine. And 2017 looks even stronger—with more action anticipated in the metal construction industry.

From metal wall panels and metal roofing to metal building systems, architects surveyed across the country reported increased specifications of materials in 2016 and pointed to an even stronger 2017, with heightened construction activity and greater involvement in the metal construction industry.

Respondents to the survey represented architect and engineering firms in four regions across the country. For details on the outlook for new construction and renovation projects with metal roofing, metal wall panels, metal buildings and metal framing systems, and green technologies, see the survey in Metal Architecture magazine.
