NFBA is thrilled to announce the launch of our new postframeadvantage.com!
As part of the Post-Frame Market Initiative (PFMI) NFBA implemented a revamp and modernization of the former Post-Frame Advantage website. This new, completely redesigned website serves as the ultimate resource for architects, designers and building owners considering post-frame projects. The purpose of the reinvigorated site is to educate these building professionals on the benefits of post frame—which include design flexibility, cost effectiveness, durability and sustainability—and to demonstrate (via online educational modules, photo gallery, case studies, etc.) how post frame is an excellent choice for low-rise commercial, institutional and residential applications.
This new website was designed and built strategically. Unlike the previous site, the messaging that accompanies this new site embraces post frame’s agricultural roots. It demonstrates how post frame's history in the agricultural sector puts post frame in a strengthened position for non-agricultural construction projects.
The website continues to boast a robust lead generation function (“Find a Post-Frame Builder”) that directs website visitors to NFBA member builder companies who construct commercial post-frame buildings.
