Modern Pre Engineered Building (Peb) Vs Conventional Civil-engineered Building
Modern pre engineered buildings are designed by mechanically sound engineers. These pre engineered buildings are fabricated using a predetermined inventory of metal materials and construction methods capable of catering to a wide range of structural and aesthetic design requirements.
In the pre engineered building concept, the complete designing and manufacturing are done at the PEB company and factory site. Pre-engineered buildings are becoming more and more popular in today’s world since they perform better than conventional buildings in terms of cost-saving, time saving, and construction benefits. Steadily PEB is increasingly being favoured in almost all infrastructure projects be it warehouses, ports, metros, industries, rail networks, airport hangers or complex projects.
One of the major advantages of PEB over other construction materials (precast, concrete, cement) is the exclusive use of steel and metal as the major component.
1. Construction of PEB structure is Faster and Time-Saving:
PEB companies use customized software for design and drafting, which increases the speed of the project. The design time of the PEB’s is also reduced since they are formed of standard sections and connections. Most of the manufacturing and designing is done at the PEB company site itself.
2. PEB construction is much more Cost-Effective:
The cost of construction of modern pre engineered buildings is calculated at the outset of the project and does not change because of fluctuations in the cost of the materials or any other factors. Thus, the costs are accurately defined and forecasted.
PEB structures, PEB godowns and pre fab structures are not only quicker to construct but have high recycle value and also conform to green norms. The use of metals in PEB further results in long durability and low maintenance cost.
3. PEB buildings have Clearer Spans and are Light Weight:
An efficiently designed and planned pre-engineered building is lighter than Conventional steel buildings. They also have much longer and clearer spans. Longer clear spans equate to less steel and potential price savings in the structural framework. PEB’s can be easily re-locatable compared to conventional brick & mortar construction. The lightweight flexible frames also offer higher resistance to seismic forces.
PEB’s have higher load-bearing capacities:
As pre engineered structures are majorly made out of steel, they have high load bearing capacities. Steel may carry up to 10 times its own weight. Whereas, concrete can only bear a load up to its own weight.
4. PEB’s have better Quality Control mechanisms:
In PEB structures precise and accurate measurements are carried out by automated machines. The quality control in the case of a PEB structure is fully assured since the buildings are manufactured completely in the factory under controlled conditions.
On the other hand, there is always scope for significant errors as most of the work is man-made on site. Materials can be compromised, which is not easy to identify.
