Building enclosure products − especially wall and roof systems − can be major contributors to the sustainability of our buildings if they:
  • Are manufactured from recycled material
  • Can be recycled or re-purposed at the end of their life cycles
  • Provide high energy efficiency
  • Are sustainably manufactured
  • Provide long life
  • Require little maintenance
In this course, you will learn how a new generation of "Eco-Metal" wall and roof systems are meeting or exceeding these performance goals and, in the process, are improving the performance and sustainability of our buildings.
