The Building of the Year Awards are a great way to recognize Contractors and Erectors for the incredible projects they complete. Their dedication to quality and safety, the interesting features, complexity and green building elements all come into play when judging these projects. The awards ceremony will take place during the opening session where we’ll be joined by MBMA members so plan now to attend this prestigious event. Submit your projects by February 14, 2020.

Metal building contractors, erectors, suppliers and manufacturers gathered at the 50th Annual MBCEA Conference May 1-3, 2019, at the Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort, South Carolina, to learn from the experts, network with key industry people, visit with old friends, hear about the latest products, and discuss leading issues with peers.  Some highlights were Keynote Speaker, Gene Marks, the MBCEA Building of the Year Awards, the Metal Construction Hall of Fame Awards and a new joint MBCEA/MBMA Roundtable. Our third year co-locating with the MBMA Spring Meeting was another success and the consensus is we’ll keep doing it! MBCEA members may log into the Members Area to view the conference presentations.
