The Pre-Engineered And Conventional Steel Building became popular today. Before a few years, we are not familiar with PEB and its scope. But today this is not seen. Surely, there is something very incredible in PEB. That’s why the entire world construction switches over to PEB from the conventional method of building constructions. Let us explore more about the differences and benefits of doing Pre-Engineered And Conventional Steel Buildings.
Conventional Building Construction is the parent of the pre-engineered building system. Both of the methods are still used in the industry but in a specific and selected form. In fact, no method can be done alone. Definitely, both need the aid of either method.
The design for a conventional steel building construction starts from the ground level itself. Each one is designed individually. Any addition to the already prepared design needs tricky works. Most of the designs are in the form of a rectangle and square. The engineers have their own tool to customize it. And in this manner, no two buildings prepared in the same way.
The conventional steel building construction always chooses a selected T shaped structure. Still, this needs to cut, punched, bottled in the worksite. The use of a standardized unit reduces the cost but customizing them require skilled Laboure and time. The T sections are hard and heavy. It generates too much scrap; this can be recycled later. And for conventional building construction, the availability of material might delay nearly 20-30 days. It took that much time to get collect all the necessary material.
The conventional steel structure needs a strong foundation. Because the steel structure is heavy enough. Also, there is no way to predict the final weight of the building until it finishes construction. As I said earlier, the framing of the building needs the T section structure. these are cut at onsite and processed. the secondary units are also selected from the hot-rolled section that can be heavier. The onsite framing works are too time-consuming and risky work, also need skilled Laboure.
The pre-engineered or prefabricated building construction design works are carried out by the manufacturer at their industrial setup. There are numerous numbers of structures are available, and this can be manipulated according to our need. The materials are collected after completing the entire design. So, that we can collect the material of our requirement. The dispatched set of materials are brought to the site and we can assemble it accordingly. The foundation requirement of pre-engineered buildings is precisely known and calculated early as the time while the design is prepared. the primary and secondary frames are custom made for pre-engineered building. Instead of T section, sturdy, lightweight at the same time strong tampered members are used. and secondary members are steel C and Z sections.
The building constructed with pre-engineered buildings has a long life. You can build anything with a multi-stored building and wide span building. Thus, the expansion is very simple and easy. Entire building work can be completed within days after preparing the design.
These are the benefits of pre-engineered building over conventional construction method. And now the possibility and availability of PEB structure are high. And PEB now extended from the industrial sector to residential building area.
