The Metal Building Manufacturers Association (MBMA) has added another title to its library of free, downloadable resources for architectural students and their professors at https://www.mbmaeducation.org/resources/. Haulover Marine Center is the latest publication in MBMA’s Architectural Significance in Metal Buildings folio series of in-depth project case studies. This 20-page folio dives into the unique design and construction requirements for a boat storage facility in North Miami Beach, Florida.

“The Haulover Marine Center folio adds to MBMA’s growing list of metal building design resources for architectural students and faculty,” said Tony Bouquot, MBMA general manager. “As we continue to engage with the educational community to highlight the possibilities of metal building systems, we are excited to introduce these unique projects to the next generation of architects and designers.”

MBMA created the Haulover Marine Center folio in coordination with Architectural Alliance

Architecture, Inc.; Trident Building Systems, LLC; and Martin Case Construction, Inc. It includes:

  • Insights and commentary from the architect, construction team and metal building manufacturer.
  • Special requirements for the project, including the need to meet code requirements designed for withstanding a Category 5 hurricane.
  • Photos, drawings and design graphics that highlight important aspects of the project.

This is MBMA’s fifth Architectural Significance in Metal Buildings folio. Previous publications spotlight the Alamo Beer Company in San Antonio; the Boston Sports Institute in Wellesley, Massachusetts; the Michelle and Barack Obama Sports Complex in Los Angeles and the Jacksonville University Basketball Performance Center in Jacksonville, Florida.
