Pre engineered buildings are like a DIY kit for a construction or a building site. Generally, the manufacturer supplies these pre-designed and unassembled structures in plug and play kit form. However, this kit is designed and customized as per the requirements.
The components of the Pre-engineered building include structural columns, beams (usually made of cold-formed steel), grits, purlins, and cladding panels for walls and roofs.
This also includes doors, windows, and vents, gutters, etc. almost everything required for a construction site. Later, the building is then assembled on-site systematically step-by-step on a slab on grade or some sort of light foundation.
The pre-engineered metal building configuration is ideal for many applications are as follows
- Cold Storage Solutions
- Residential Solutions
- Retail Solutions
- Industrial Solutions
- Public Utility Solutions
Application for Cold Storage Solutions:
- Cold Rooms & Chambers
- Solar Cold Formed Section
These facilities are highly durable, weather & corrosion resistant, cost-effective, low maintenance and safe
Insulation is done to prevent heat and sound from being transmitted from one area to another. Mostly, it is used to keep or restrict heat within or outside of a certain place. Insulation can work in a number of different ways; mostly it includes materials that consist of millions of tiny pouches of air.
Cold rooms are reliable and efficient environmental friendly for a variety of reasons. They have refrigeration based de-humidification to maintain a low dew-point to prevent ice accumulation all round. The Cold Storage Rooms & Chambers are made of very high-quality raw materials that ensure smooth performance at the user level.
Ventilators are very important for every building construction. They create a free air movement in the structures which improves the comfort of occupants and keeps the ambience pleasant and fresh.
They supply oxygen, balance internal temperatures and maintain humidity. They reduce the moisture in the air, stale odours, bacteria, dust particles, carbon dioxide, smoke and any other discomforting elements that can build upon during occupied periods.
Hence, the pre engineered buildings play a major role in creating an affordable and efficient ventilator within time, money and space constraints.
This pre engineered building (PEB) insulation is ideal for larger construction sites or remote location buildings where you cannot find much of the installation services easily. These insulation materials drastically reduce heat transfer through the roof surface.
Application for Residential & Community Solutions.
- Houses & Living
- Community Centers
- Additions to Existing Buildings
Goals of goal making most of the constructions are very simple; make it affordable, light & energy-efficient and eco-friendly. However, we are facing a very big challenge in this due to the rapid urbanization and limited time and space recourses.
In addition to this most public and private construction all over the world are obliged to trim construction costs, regardless of the fact that the growing population leads to overcrowded cities in many cases.
The concept of pre-engineered is the most preferred building technology across the world today, where the standardized components are produced and fabricated in plants, away from the construction site, and then transported to the site, where the structure is to be erected, for assembly.
These components are manufactured by industrial methods, based on the mass production system of the pre engineering building concept which is an ideal technology to promote environment-friendly construction and build sustainable infrastructure to create an affordable and efficient residential complex within the stipulated time, money and space constraint.
Apart from creating a new project pre engineered structures provide a great solution to add or extend any part of an existing building.
Application for Retail Solutions
- Convenience Stores
- Retail Shopping Centers
- Exhibition Hall
Pre engineered buildings are perfect for most of the Retail solutions.
The retail setup requires bright rooms full of light which provide clarity and a comfortable atmosphere. When planning a retail setup, apart from static details and costs, the architecture also needs to be kept in mind.
The atmosphere in every retail structure is crucial. A satisfactory sales volume can only be generated if the goods are well presented. Both small and large scale commercial structures like retail shopping centres, exhibition hall, large scale grocery stores, business plazas, convention centres, mega showrooms are cost-effective and completely customizable as per designs.
Nowadays, every retail setups and outlet comply to meet the highest standards with respect to design, safety, and technology. Naturally, the individual requirement is taken into consideration in the planning phase as well.
Application for Commercial & Industrial Solutions
- Office Buildings & Complexes
- Storage, Warehouses & Distribution Centers
- Factories, Workshops
- Self-Storage Warehouses
All the companies thrive to optimize their projects and try to save money in every possible way. With continuous and heavy overhead cost applied in any industrial setup or commercial endeavour, it is imperative to consider a definite system which can drastically reduce time, cost and space.
Warehouses, Distribution Centers, Factories, Workshops, Warehouses, etc. which are designed cost-effective, practical and customizable at scale.
Application for Public Utility Solutions
- Shelters & Labor Camps
- Sports Halls & Complex
- Fire Stations
- Aircraft Hangers
- Railway Stations
With an increasing need for Government projects in Public utility space; it is very important to cautiously consider available resources and make the best out of it. Government projects are designed at scale for the larger interest of the common public.
To conclude, the main advantages of pre engineered buildings are as follows:
Though design and aesthetics are important the main purpose is always practicality, durability, cost and time taken to complete. Hence, the Pre Engineered Building components and principles can be applied for almost any kind of low-rise building structures that requires optimization at very low cost, time and space.
- Quality control is maintained as these are engineered beforehand and taken into consideration.
- Lower cost in design, manufacturing and on-site erection cost.
- Minimum time for construction due to the use of software for the design of the structural components.
- Low Maintenance cost due to quality paints over steel members, which increases the ability to withstand.
- Low Construction cost, as the components are Pre Manufactured & labour is used to connect them.
- The warranty period given by manufactures for PEB is of 20 years.
