“Metal Building Systems 101” begins with a brief introduction of the history of metal buildings before explaining the specifics of what makes up a metal building system. It then explores the many benefits of metal building systems and dives into their sustainability and energy-efficient attributes. The video also dispels several industry misconceptions. Other topics addressed in the video include:
