As the name suggests, pre-engineered buildings capitalize on time by steel building systems predesigned and prefabricated, this is made possible because of the wide range of structural and aesthetic requirements these structures can fix in a cost-efficient manner.
PEBs are generally constructed in just 6 to 8 weeks of design approvals. The secret to this speed lies in the prebuild pieces of this structure being put together on the spot. According to the approved designs, different pre-engineered building block are placed, fastened into positions, tested, and roofed, all in that short period of time.
PEBs will thus reduce total construction time of the project by at least 30%. This allows faster occupancy and earlier realization of revenue. Because of systems approach, considerable saving is achieved in design, manufacturing and erection cost. These buildings can be easily expanded in length by adding additional bays. Future expansion possibilities are limitless, for you can expand both the height and length of the structure. Buildings can be supplied to around 90m clear spans. This is one of the most important advantages of PEB – giving column free space.
There are following major components in a pre-engineered building:
