Pre Engineered Buildings are extremely quick and efficient buildings which replaced traditional building which were made with concrete and asbestos which require more time, money and labor. They have a simple design, are light weight & easy to construct. Delivery takes an average of 6 to 8 weeks. Thus, both costs & time of erection are minimized.
The erection process is easy, fast, step by step and easy to fabricate.Outstanding architectural design can be achieved at low cost. PEBs are flexible and modular and lend themselves easily to future expansion.
Pre engineered building consists of following components:
· Structural Systems
· Secondary Systems
STRUCTURAL SYSTEMS :Structural systems are the main load carrying and support members of a pre- engineered building.
SECONDARY MEMBERS: Secondary members are load carrying members suitable to ensure the stability of the building against forces in any direction. They primarily include purlins and girts, eave strut, cable bracing and open steel web joists.
CLADDING: The steel substrate is hot dipped galvanized zinc or hot dipped zinc / aluminum coated. The surface of the metal coatings is then given a series of pre treatments to ensure that they are completely clean.

What Are The Advantages Of Pre Engineered Building(PEB)
· Reduced Construction Time
· Lower cost
· Flexibility of expansion
· Superior product quality
· Fast Project Construction
· Large clear spans
· Quality Control
· Low maintenance
· Architectural versatility
· Single source responsibility
Reduced construction time :
Buildings are typically delivered in just a few weeks after approval of drawings. Foundation and anchor bolts are cast parallel with finished, ready for the site bolting.
Foundation are fewer and lighter. There is a significant saving in design, manufacturing and on site erection cost.
Flexibility Of Expansion:
Buildings can be easily expanded in length by adding additional bays. Also expansion in width and height is possible by pre-designing for future expansion.
Superior Product Quality:
Design Quality is consistent and is based on latest design in USA Codes. Materials are ordered as per recognized standard. Fabrication is done as per a Quality Plan.
Fast Project Construction:
Anchor Bolts are delivered earlier than the Building. Fast erection because all members are field bolted. Buildings are fabricated and delivered within a short period due to standardization.
Large Clear Spans:
Buildings can be supplied to around 80M clear spans.
As buildings are manufactured completely in the factory under controlled conditions the quality is assured.
Low Maintenance :
Virtually no maintenance required for all panels. Roof requires only periodic cleaning. Buildings are supplied with high quality paint systems for cladding and steel to suit ambient conditions at the site, which results in long durability and low maintenance coats. Annual washing of Eave Gutters.
Building can be supplied with various types of fascias, canopies, and curved eaves and are designed to receive pre cast concrete wall panels, curtain walls, block walls and other wall systems.
Single source responsibility:
Building package is supplied by a single vendor, compatibility of all the building components and accessories is assured. This is one of the major benefits of the pre engineered building systems.
Advantages of Pre Engineered Building Over Conventional System
· PEB System is zero maintenance and superior in strength.
· It is corrosion resistance and feature an attractive appearance.
· Steel arriving at job site is dry with no residual oil on the surface.
· PEB system has protection against non uniform weathering.
· Excellent resistant in transit to corrosion and storage strain.
· This system reduces energy loads on buildings due to long term bright surface that helps to retain heat reflectivity.
· It is a higher level technology and innovation and better product over conventional material.
