1. Introduction of pre-engineered buildings
2. Advantages of pre-engineered buildings
The foundation of a pre-engineered steel building is lighter than the concrete building. In terms of maintenance and operating costs, there is virtually no maintenance required for the wall panels; roof panels require only periodic cleaning, while annual washing of the gutters to remove dirt and trash is considered sufficient.
Since pre-engineered buildings are fabricated completely in the factory under qualified controlled conditions, it is easier to manage quality than on-site projects.
Aesthetic features such as fascias, parapets, and curved eaves greatly enhance the architectural appearance of the pre-engineered buildings and empower designers to create unique buildings. In addition, a wide range of wall and roof panels, flashing and trims are available in various shapes and colors, etc.
Pre-engineered steel buildings have large clear spans, long bay spacing and can be easily extended for future requirements.
Standard steel buildings are typically delivered in only 8 weeks (including engineering time) and may be reduced to as low as 4 weeks for special “fast track” projects. This is because the components are prefabricated in factories and shipped ready to be assembled. Additionally, anchor bolt installation plans and anchor bolts can be delivered earlier than the building supply to start the construction of foundations prior to the delivery of steel buildings.
