What the Industry is Saying About the New Post-Frame Building Design Manual

The newly revised and expanded 2015 edition of the NFBA Post-Frame Building Design Manual is not just "theory and procedure" but gives real life, practical examples of how to design a post-frame project, according to Tim Royer, president of Timber Tech Engineering and a member of the NFBA Technical & Research Committee.

Visit the Redesigned Post-Frame Advantage Website

PFA_WebsiteNFBA 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.

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.
