The selector also lists the independent inspectors and industry support services members of MCRMA.
MCRMA offers an online CPD programme which is open to anyone seeking to develop their knowledge and skills within the metal building envelope sector. Each module also offers members of professional institutions an opportunity to earn 60 minutes of credits towards their annual CPD requirement.
Safety is paramount at all times and there is a dedicated section on the web site to ensure that all those involved in roof construction have access to the most up to date advice on safe working practices and also the legal requirements.
MCRMA has issued a new Advice Note on best practice for safe rainscreen facades as it does not currently foresee the publication of further guidance on Building Regulations from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) until the outcome of the Building Regulations Enquiry. As an association, MCRMA has an obligation to interpret the current situation and adopt a suitably responsible approach and the Advice Note can be downloaded as a one page or four page document.
