PEB VS Conventional Building

Steel industry is the most rapidly growing industry in the world. Conventional steel buildings are the steel structures of low rise with roof coverings. These are constructed with individual steel rolled sections and are fabricated using welding, cutting, giving it a unique design. Steel structures are both economical and eco-friendly even at times of global warming. Ex- Pinax Steel  a PEB  Manufacturers in India.

Time being an important factor, steel structures are built in a short period, like Pre-Engineered Buildings (PEB). But for regular structures of steel, both cost and time taken will be more making it uneconomical. Thus, in PEB, all the designs are done within the factory and are prefabricated to transport at site where they can be erected in less than 6 to 8 weeks.

Pre-engineered manufacturing buildings in India

India is a vast country with massive construction of buildings across the country. The requirement of buildings is tremendous and the availability of the industrial buildings, Godown and factories don’t meet its rising demand each year. Hence there is a requirement for pre-engineered buildings. Pinax Steel a PEB Manufacturers in India.

In India, the steel products are available at a surplus capacity particularly the hot and cold steel sheets which are utilized for constructing the components of pre-engineered buildings. There are several components of pre-engineered buildings which are as follows:

  • Primary components
  • Secondary components
  • Sheeting/cladding
  • Accessories

Features of Pre-engineered Building:

  • The doors and windows are all-steel made, keeping our environment intact.
  • The buildings are made waterproof with the help of special beads and strips.
  • The time taken for the construction of pre-engineered buildings is much less than the conventional structures.
  • The pre-engineered buildings are made so that the productions and assemblies on-site are done easily.
  • As these buildings take a lesser time for construction, it involves a greater amount of cost of labor.
  • The pre-engineered buildings can be easily installed within fewer hours at the clients’ site.
  • It can also be uninstalled easily and again set up in a different site.

Pros and cons

  • Pre-engineered buildings are suitable for most of the project types.
  • If the designs are ideal for the project, then only pre-engineered buildings can offer low cost, less maintenance, low constructional waste, durability, and can easily be expanded.
  • These buildings are suitable for industrial and commercial construction projects.
  • The construction time is less and is more energy-efficient.
  • Delivery processes are faster than traditional buildings.

Conventional Construction

In conventional constructions, channeling and foundations have to be constructed before the framing begins. Each component needs to be completed before approaching the next step. So, each schedule is set according to the trade’s efficiency. Conventional constructions are suitable for complex structural designs. However, these constructions are not only time-consuming but also costlier than pre-engineered building constructions. Ex- Pinax Steel a PEB Manufacturers

Pros and cons

  • Conventional buildings involve high labor costs as well as a lot of wastes due to construction.
  • Conventional blocks also provide optional designs that are flexible and require ongoing maintenance.
  • Conventional buildings weigh more than the pre-engineered buildings. So, over time they can deteriorate the foundations.
  • The delivery process and constructions are low.
  • Materials and labors are easily available.

Building materials

There are various types of building materials and those are divided into two types:

  • Traditional materials: These materials fulfill the essential needs of the population. The production process and the application techniques can be changed so that these are functionally and structurally acceptable.
  • Conventional materials: These materials are obtained from modern technologies and are usually mentioned as research and are adapted to the indigenous requirements.

Some low-cost building materials are used for housing constructions. They are:

  • Mud improvement: Mud houses can be environment friendly since they are cool during summers and warm during winters. Muds are available everywhere and are free of cost.
  • Thatched roof improvement: It involves thatched layers that are plastered by specific mud plasters. The top and the bottom portion of the thatch roof are plastered to make it durable as well as fire-resistant.
  • Flash-sand-lime bricks:  These are made from flash, lime, and sand and are used as binders. These bricks have well-crushing strength and have a low cost.
  • Flooring/Roofing: These are the precast planks and are supported with precast joists RCC. It saves costs up to 20% and time for construction up to 12%.
  • Holo-pan system: This can be used for pre-fabricated components and includes walls, roofing/floors, collar units, door/window, and parapet units. Overall, the costs are less and the construction speed is more.

Thus, pre-engineered buildings and conventional buildings have their pros and cons. So the choice of the building structure depends not only on the materials and design requirements but also your lifestyle, safety, maintenance, and your budgetary requirements.
