The pre-engineered buildings (PEBS) are the building components that are manufactured at a factory and assembled on site. Usually, Peb is a steel structure and can be an alternative to conventional structural steel buildings. The pre-engineered structural steel framing components are made in the factory to the right size, transported to the site, and assembled at the location, usually with a bolt connection. This type of structural concept is generally used to build:
- Small Industrial and Manufacturing Buildings
- Small retail and commercial office buildings
- Warehouse and storage unit
Pre-engineered metal buildings use combinations of:
- The structural steel framing system
- Metal roof system
- Wall panels from various ingredients
Wall panels can be a variety of choices, from single skin sheeting with added insulation to insulated sandwich panels. The concept is designed to provide a complete building envelope system which is:
- Energy saving
- Optimal temperature control
- Above all, designed to adjust specific user specifications
As the complete PEB is supplied by a single vendor, compatibility of all the building components and accessories is assured. This is another of the major benefits of pre-engineered building systems.
Building systems can be supplied with various types of metal wall panels, fascia, canopies, and curved eaves and are designed to accommodate pre-cast concrete wall panels, curtain walls, block walls as well as other wall systems.
