MCRMA produces a range of publications designed to educate specifiers and contractors alike on metal building envelope design, the systems available, their application, superior life expectancy and unrivalled value over other material alternatives. All MCRMA publications are free to download.

The guidance documents below set out to answer some of the frequently asked questions relating to building envelope systems and their components. The documents cover a wide range of topics including  working at heights, CE marking, installation of purlins and side rails, CDM regulations and non-fragility. A list of guidance documents can be downloaded here.

The technical design guides are available primarily as a reference resource and will prove particularly useful to specifiers who need to check on metal building envelope specifications of the last 25 years.

MCRMA has published a new Advice Note AN 09 The Building (Amendment) Regulations 2021 Guidance. This advice note addresses ambiguities in the new Approved Document AD-L Volume 2 Buildings other than dwellings which MCRMA has identified in comparison with previous versions of the Approved Documents.
