Pre-Engineered Steel Buildings use a combination of built-up sections, hot rolled sections and cold formed elements which provide the basic steel frame work with a choice of single skin sheeting with added insulation or insulated sandwich panels for roofing and wall cladding. The concept is designed to provide a complete building envelope system which is air tight, energy efficient, optimum in weight and cost and, above all, designed to fit user requirement like a well fitted glove.The design methodology makes itmore resistant to earthquakes and long lasting. It is a customizable system keeping in mind the client’s requirement.
General advantages over traditional RCC structures
|Sr. No.||Description||Reinforced Cement Construction||Pre Engineered Buildings|
|1||System Description||Mixing and Curing is involved which leads to delayed delivery of structure to End Customer||All the members are Factory cut and punched, completely Nut and Bolt system which results in huge saving on installation time (Almost 70% compare to RCC and 50% compare to Conventional)|
|2||Weight||Heavy Structure||Due to Light weight handling is quiet easy.|
|3||Corrosion Protection||NIL||All the structural members are corrosion protected and leads to less maintenance and looks aesthetics.|
|4||Cost||High||Almost 70% of the total cost of RCC building.|
|5||Construction Time||22-28 Weeks||8-10 Weeks|
|6||Foundations||Heavy foundation escalates cost.||Simple Design and comparatively light foundation.|
|7||Erection||Requirement of skilled labour and involvement of various parties.||Hassle free as erection and supply is generally in single party’s scope.|
|8||Seismic Resistance||Resistant||Better seismic resistance.|
|9||Future Options||Fixed no changes can be made||Can be dismantled and re-erected at a nominal cost.|
|10||Turn Around on investments||Delayed||Faster, leads to early utilization of your structure.|
