About the Software
Metal Building Software is a Software Program that does the complete design,
detailing, costing and drafting of steel framed metal buildings. Our clients
range in size from doing less than $1.5 million to over $360 million in steel
The software does the design based on your inventory and your choice of over 65
US and international building codes. It details the building according to your
customized detailing methods. The software then creates an accurate bill of
materials and cost. Finally, it develops a complete set of customized erection
drawings and detailed shop drawings.
Clients who use our software have reduced their design/detailing/drafting time
(over other software suppliers) by well over 50%. This increase in productivity
allows the Software to pay for itself in a short period of time.
About the People
In 1992 MBS leased its first software package and the first five companies that
saw a demonstration of our product signed on immediately! Now over 200
satisfied clients later, MBS continues to add program enhancements and has to
date published over 1200 unique enhancements.
This is an example of how MBS is dedicated to the continued support of our
clients. Our full-time staff of registered engineers and metal building
professionals have been in your shoes. They know what it is like to have the
plant manager breathing down their neck for drawings or to make the bid
deadline. Our goal is to provide the support and program enhancement necessary
to allow our clients to stay ahead!
Metalcon 2014 Presentations (in PDF format) are now available on the MBS FTP site.
