Building You the Best Series: NFBA’s Revised Building Design Manual

Need help with post-frame building system concepts?  You have updated information available now!  The National Frame Building Association (NFBA) has just released one of eight newly revised chapters in its Post-Frame Building Design Manual.  Building regulations, load and deflection criteria, structural design are just a few of the topics covered in the Manual.  The revisions to the fifteen year old manual include answers to many frequently asked questions from building engineers and architects, in addition to providing more design options.



Specifically, the recently released chapter, Chapter 1, entitled “Introduction to Post-Frame Buildings” include updates on the following: standard post-frame terminology and general building terminology, explanations of how post-frame differs from other building types, a history of post-frame buildings, many color images, post-frame applications and building diagrams.  And designers, architects, and sales & marketing people will especially be interested in two new sections in Chapter 1 about the advantages of post-frame building and ideal structural applications.
