COMPONENTS OF A PEB
Built-up I - Sections (often tapered) which are used to produce the columns, rafters & beams of rigid frames, bearing frames, mezzanine structures, cranes runways, roof monitors, roof platforms, catwalks, fascias, parapets, canopies, roof extensions, etc.)
Hot rolled I - Sections, channels, tubes and angles that are used in limited quantities in the PEB Steel Structure.
Galvanized cold-formed “Z”, “C” and angle shaped secondary structural members (roof purlins, eave struts, wall girts, base channels, base angles, gable angles, etc.)
Structural Sundry Items (Anchor Bolts, Connection Bolts, Expansion Bolts and Sag Rods).
Profiled, mill finish and pre-painted, roof & wall panels and trims & flashings which include eave gutters, downspouts, ridge panels, curved eave panels, etc.
Panel Accessories such as sky lights, wall lights, ridge ventilators, power ventilators, fiberglass insulation, personnel doors, double sliding doors, roll-up doors and sand trap louvers.
Panel Sundry Items (sheeting fasteners, foam closures, bead mastic, pop rivets, etc.)
Single Source Responsibility
GSF have the in-house capability to engineer exact structural designs enabling exact estimates of any ground + 2 building structure in record time, often accompanied with proposal drawings.
Low Initial Cost
Tapered built-up primary structural members, used in PEB rigid frame, rafters & columns, are 30 - 40% lighter than hot rolled mill sections used in equivalent applications.
Faster overall Project Completion
From Gallery to occupancy no building system matches the PEB system when it comes to speed of construction.typical 2000 m2 building often takes only 110 days from initial Gallery to completion of erection.
Emergence of Specialized PEB Contractors
Specialized PEB contractors in this region, some of whom are design/ build contractors, complement the economy of a PEB with a similarly economical substructure to provide the most economical building solution to construct Ground + 2 (floors) steel buildings.
Fast Modular Expandability
The future expandability of a Pre- Engineered Steel Building is both simple and economical, especially if provisions are made at the initial design stage.
Unlike “mill section steel buildings” where raw materials must be ordered long in advance, if the PEB building parameters and the magnitude of loads that are applied on it are changed during the technical approval process it would not adversely impact its delivery schedule.
