"The benefits of membership in MBCEA are numerous. As a GC/CM we have found the quality of MBCEA erectors to be the best in the metal building industry. Our efforts to become accredited in the AC-478 program has brought up our level of professionalism and defined a clear process for the construction of metal buildings creating a safer and quality driven culture which is now extending to other trades we work with. Finally, I have found the networking opportunities of membership a huge advantage providing contacts for suppliers, sub-contractors and ultimately, friendships."

-Art Hance, Hance Construction
