The Metal Cladding and Roofing Manufacturers Association (MCRMA) has published a new guidance document GD39 Sustainability and durability of metal roofing and cladding systems.

The guidance document focuses on sustainability from a ‘fabric first’ approach, where the metal building envelope provides a long-lasting solution which can be future proofed for potential changes of use of the building.

As there is a natural split between sustainability and durability topics, the MCRMA guidance document is published as a suite of eight standalone sections, each of which covers specific but interrelated subjects, including sustainability background, zero avoidable waste, environmental assessment methods, durability, life cycle/whole life costing, products and components.
