MCRMA welcomes KR Cladding Systems – its second system installer member. KR Cladding has an experienced project base in a wide variety of buildings. The company offers expert advice, assistance, and a full design, supply, and installation package.
Commercial Property Surveys Ltd joins the independent inspectors’ category. In addition to carrying out independent roof and industrial cladding inspections, the company also provides services to commercial property landlords and tenants.
This CPD sets out to define the different meanings for the word cladding when used to describe products, materials and systems for a wall within construction projects and to ensure that the term is used in the correct context.
The CPD covers single skin, built-up assemblies, metal rainscreen façade systems and sandwich panels.
The MCRMA was formed in 1990 to support the systems manufacturers in the emerging metal cladding and roofing industry. Since then MCRMA has evolved to encompass the needs of component manufacturer suppliers, system installers, independent roofing and cladding inspectors plus industry support services providers, all providing independent building envelope solutions for metal-based roofing and cladding systems, products and services.
MCRMA has published a new Advice Note AN 06 Safe working practices on roofs: the distinction between ‘walkable’ and ‘non-fragility’. AN 06 is intended to remind all those involved in roof work construction that they have a responsibility to be aware of the most up to date advice on safe working practices and also to be compliant with the legal requirements.
A recent publication added to the web site is a metal cladding and roofing supplement which has been published by Roofing Today, in association with MCRMA. The supplement features technical articles on specification, calculations for modern building designs, including for snow and wind loading, and the introduction of a new category of membership for system installers.
The product and services selector enables visitors to quickly and easily locate the manufacturers of specific roofing and cladding systems and components. 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. The CPDs are flexible and provide ‘learning on the go’ as the course material can be studied both online and offline, on mobiles, tablets and print. There is an online assessment component to verify knowledge and following the successful online completion of a CPD, a certificate can be downloaded for the user’s personal records.
MCRMA has published an update to its professional indemnity insurance information highlighting the ongoing challenges faced by the construction insurance industry.
MCRMA members have been widely specified and involved in the industry’s most prestigious buildings, creating imaginative and innovative building designs that offer cost-effective and sustainable solutions for major developers, clients and end users.
As the voice of the industry, MCRMA works closely with a variety of industry bodies and standards committees to develop building envelope solutions and to disseminate best practice across a variety of industry sectors.
