what if mca didn t exist
What if MCA Didn’t Exist?
  • The inertia of working together as an industry wouldn’t exist
  • Architects, designers and specifiers would be less able to specify metal panels
  • There would be no industry advocate on codes and standards
what if mca didn t exist1
What if MCA Didn’t Exist?
  • Code and technical barriers to metal construction would be significantly higher
  • There would be considerably less recognition of the value of metal as a construction material by architects, building owners, designers and regulators
