Advantages of Pre-Engineered Buildings over conventional steel buildings

One can prefer many options while structuring a building. What would be the building method? There are several elements to reckon with before arriving at a decision.The pre-engineered buildings in Nepal are an idea that includes pre-designed and pre-fabricated steel structures that can be modified as per the requirement and assembled at the site. Pre-engineered buildings have become a general construction procedure globally due to their flexibility and ease of construction.


Let’s get to the advantages of Pre-engineered buildings over conventional steel buildings.

  • Ease of Construction

Since most of the engineering of the buildings is done in the factory during prefabrication, reducing the efforts required during the construction site makes the construction process much more manageable. Moreover, PEB in Nepal makes expansion easier due to their connecting design structure. Expansion in a conventional system is often more tedious, incurring higher costs and labor.

  • Durability 

As steel buildings, pre-engineered buildings have a high strength-to-weight ratio compared to concrete structures, allowing them to resist intense mishaps such as windstorms, earthquakes, and thunderstorms. Well-constructed steel buildings can endure up to 30 years if preserved rightly. Moreover, Pre-engineered buildings also have high resistance to fire in comparison with wooden structures as wood is a combustible material.

  • Design

In PEB, the design setup is speedy and efficient due to its integral framing system. The design is computer produced, making the measurements precise, and evacuating the possibility of human errors. Besides that, traditional buildings are designed and constructed.

  • Cost and Time Savings 

You can pick out appropriate materials before construction, and after running all the calculations, only the required materials can be procured, making for efficient material usage and less wastage. So this method of construction is highly effective. Also, the PEB can gain a return on investment much faster than conventional construction methods.

  •  Performance

The components in the pre-engineered building test for effectiveness. It can function jointly with other elements as a system that advances performance. In conventional buildings, the various features are all prepared and built individually. But there is no assurance that these elements will incorporate sufficiently and work consistently.


 How are Pre-Engineered Buildings Better than Conventional Steel Buildings?

  • Pre-engineered buildings are 10 to 20% lighter than conventional steel buildings.
  • Pre-engineered construction and erection are quicker and more straightforward than traditional steel buildings.
  • Pre-engineered buildings require delicate appliances for construction, while conventional steel buildings require hefty labor and appliances.
  • Pre-engineered buildings have good resistance against systematic actions due to their lightweight structure, whereas traditional facilities cannot withstand organized forces because of hefty construction.
