It is no secret that prefabricated structures have improved through the years but at the dawn of its introduction, the idea was associated with making dry wall systems, prestressed beams, structural insulated panels, etc. As time passed, its popularity skyrocketed, allowing the technology to be applied in various other constructions such as building warehouses, massive plants, industrial hubs, divergent residential, commercial purposes, etc.
In this blog, we will give you an overview of pre-engineered office building, its concept, origin, application, associated process and also its many benefits.
In earlier days, while people were searching for new lands to build their colony, it triggered the idea of transportable houses and camps. Though prefabricated buildings were not introduced by that time, the concept of moving houses sprouted. At the start of the 20th century, the labour for constructional work was reduced because men were enlisted for war which led to the rise of housing shortages. People pledged to develop several substitute housing methods and implement them in the practical world.
Prefabricated buildings are the compact and efficient version of modern structure design. They consist of walls, roof and floors like any other building whose components are factory-manufactured. Industrial structures, labour hutments, office spaces, schools, supermarkets, storage spaces, and residential buildings are a few most common applications of pre-engineered buildings.
The modern construction system with prefabrication is more organised than the conventional method. The manufacturing process of the components is controllable and done by computerised intervention. Most of the buildings have repetition of walls, floors and roofs, a production system can be developed by arranging a segment of operations. These operations can be formulated and upgraded, helping in evolving efficient manufacturing procedures.
The conventional building structures are built by a certain code, similarly, the prefabricated structures are meant to follow similar code. The guidelines vary as per the country and land type. It also appears as a challenge because they are constantly updating to meet the new developments. Before starting the construction process, the land needs to be inspected thoroughly. The site further needs to be tested whether it is competent as per the national building code.
With the increasing number of modern building systems, the prefabricated structures will set the trend of green sustainability. In the following years, it is expected that the demand of pre-engineered buildings will skyrocket
