Celebrating Earth Day by Understanding Metal’s Role in Sustainability

Our special webinar series METAL ARCHITECTURE at METALCON, aimed at showcasing projects that illustrate the beauty, durability, efficiency, and sustainability of metal, continued earlier this month with a panel of three industry leaders who discussed how metal building products support the increasing demand for sustainable building practices. Moderated by Paul Deffenbaugh, editorial director of Metal Architecture, two architects from two ends of the country discussed their selection process for metal building components on recently executed projects.

Rick Schneider, FAIA, principal of ISTUDIO Architects, Washington, D.C., talked about the newly completed Marvin Gaye Recreation Center in Washington, and Hafsa Burt, studio head, hb+a Architects, San Francisco, presented her modular residential construction called the “Box Factory” as a sustainable model home that could fit in any environment. Both projects selected a variety of steel and metal materials for their long-term sustainable benefits. Bob Zabcik, P.E., technical director of the Metal Construction Association, joined the conversation by providing technical insight along with his extensive knowledge of metal components and sustainable building practices.
