Post-Frame Advantage Program

Formerly known as the Post-Frame Market Initiative (PFMI), Post Frame Advantage (PFA) is a program created to expand the use of post-frame construction in non-agricultural segments. PFA focuses on educating architects, builders, designers, code officials, and end consumers about the benefits of post-frame construction. 

NFBA’s Post-Frame Advantage Program is an integral part in what the Association does to improve the Industry.  Each year, PFA makes sizable contributions to projects that accomplish the following:

  • Educating Building Owners and Designers about the option of post-frame construction
  • Making the message heard that Post-frame brings value and innovative solutions
  • Educating Builders and Industry Associates about improved methods for post-frame structures
  • Boosting Employers’ ability to recruit and retain skilled Employees
  • Tackling issues that even larger companies alone would not be able to take on

All of these initiatives benefit the industry as a whole, but collectively, PFA works to generate more LEADS for YOUR BUSINESS. 

It is our goal that all post-frame-related businesses will see more projects in the residential and commercial/non-ag market as a result of our work.  It is our mission to generate increased awareness of post-frame as a high quality and sustainable building choice.
