Change is the only thing that always stays the same. Over time, things will always change. Technology used in building has also changed a lot over the years. One of these big changes was the use of prefabricated buildings. Even though pre-engineered buildings have been around for a while, they have only become popular in the last few years. About 70% of the commercial buildings in the US are pre engineered today. There’s no doubt that this new way of building is the next big thing.
Pre-engineered buildings are those that are built away from the site and then moved there to be put together. The parts are put together with joists, nuts, bolts, and other jointing systems that are specific to the structure. This way of building takes a lot less time and is known for being cost-effective. Since building is done in a controlled environment with machines, it makes the work more accurate. Also, a lot less construction waste is made.
PEB is a new idea in India, but its use in government and business is growing quickly. In the past few years, the commercial, institutional, and infrastructure sectors have also grown well. The buildings we have now are more beautiful and complicated than the ones we had a few decades ago. Steel, which is light but strong, is used for the main structure. The material’s strength, on the other hand, is not affected in any way.
The design can be changed and made to fit the needs of the client. The term “pre-engineered” refers to the process of figuring out all of a building’s specifications before it is built. Before the building starts, all of the structural elements, like the size, load-bearing capacity, panel thickness, foundation needs, door/window sizes, and so on, are figured out. This means that pre-engineered buildings can be made to look however the owner wants. Installation is easy because the parts have already been made. All you have to do is put the whole building together at the site.
Even though they are mostly used in industrial and non-residential building, the number of them in India is growing quickly. Reports say that the amount of pre-engineered steel buildings that can be made each year is around 6.0 lac tonnes. The growth is still going up at a steady rate of 25 to 30 percent.
PEBs have a number of advantages over traditional building methods. They are the right weight, cheap, and last a long time. Most importantly, PEB construction takes a lot less time. Depending on the size and type of building, PEBs can be put together 30–60% faster than traditional building materials. This is a big reason why people all over the world are starting to use pre-engineered buildings.
