what is pre engineered buildings?

Pre-Engineered Buildings (PEBs) are often utilised in factories, warehouses, hangars, and other structures that give us design freedom, allowing us to optimise the building's utilities for aesthetics and end-user experience. These buildings are a green alternative to traditional construction because it is constructed in a short amount of time, and a prefabricated building saves time.

What Is A Pre-Engineered Building?

A pre-engineered building (PEB) is a structure developed by a PEB provider or manufacturer with a single design that can be produced using a variety of materials and methods to meet a variety of structural and aesthetic design requirements. In recent times, there has been a significant increase in the number of Pre Engineered Buildings.

Applications Of PEBs

This structural concept is commonly utilised to construct industrial buildings, factories, metro stations, warehouses, community halls, commercial showrooms, workshops, stadiums, cold storage, railway platforms, parking sheds, airports, etc.

PEBs are regarded as a technological advance in the building industry, resulting in shorter construction times, lower costs, higher quality, lower maintenance, and a longer lifespan. Pre-engineered structures meet one of the most important industrial requirements which are large, column-free zones.

Components Of PEBs

Pre-engineered buildings are made up of a variety of steel structural members, including the following:

  • ● Primary structure: A PEB's primary framing is an assembly of built-up I-shaped steel elements, which may include trusses or castellated beams, among other things.
  • ● Secondary Structure includes the following; It's actually Cold-Formed Members, which come in a variety of shapes such as "Z," "C," and so on. Known as "Purlins" in general.
  • ● Roof & Wall Panels structure including tin shades, glass curtain walls, and roll-formed steel sheets are commonly seen in this category, S ● Sandwich Panels: A non-aluminium core is placed between two aluminium sheets in a sandwich panel comprising three layers.
  • ● Other components include mezzanine floors, bolts, insulation, and so on.
  • Advantages Of PEBs
  • ● The key advantage is that all structural members are engineered ahead of time, standards from various codes are taken into account, and these components are manufactured in the factory under the supervision of a Quality Control Engineer.
  • ● Less expensive due to cost savings in design, manufacture, and on-site erection.
  • ● Low maintenance due to the employment of standard quality paints over steel members, which increases the ability to endure and, as a result, the maintenance cost will be lower than with a traditional steel structure.
Why PEBs Are Cost-Effective?

RCC construction necessitates a large amount of labour to finish any project, whereas pre-engineered building construction necessitates a less amount of labour. When a large team of workers is needed for RCC building, labour costs are going to be high. Due to the limited labour required in the installation of any PEB construction, labour costs are modest. Once all of the products are ready to be transferred to the site, the PEB can be built in a matter of days or weeks. However, RCC construction is a time-consuming operation. The project could take a few months to complete. When we deconstruct RCC structures, the material is rarely reusable, whereas the material in PEB structures is typically reusable.
