PEB stands for Pre Engineered Buildings. It can fulfill a wide range of structural and aesthetic design requirements. This flexibility allows PEBs to fulfill a vast range of building configurations, custom designs, requirements and applications. The technology offers several advantages over conventional concrete or steel structures, both in terms of cost and time savings.


PEBs are primarily made up of Built-up “I” shaped primary structural framing members (columns & rafters), Cold-formed “Z” & “C” shaped secondary structural members (roof purlin, eave struts & wall girts), & Roll formed profiled sheeting (roof & wall panels). Other features include mezzanine floors, crane runway beams, roof platforms, catwalks, fascias, parapets, canopies & roof extensions.

The PEB Advantage

The PEB Advantage

Large spans
Up to 60 meters without any columns in between
Faster construction
Time is money. PEB can save up to 50% construction time compared to conventional methods. A 50,000 sq ft building can be made ready for occupation within 10-12 weeks.
Cost effective
Optimum utilization of materials, built-to-design steel sections, and faster construction, all lead to direct & indirect cost savings. Lower foundation cost with wider bay spacing.
PEB permits future expansion & relocation
Single source responsibility
Project co-ordination, construction management, cash flow management etc. become easy, effective & predictable since you avoid dealing with several agencies. This can be a big relief for the client.
Custom designs
To suit specific needs of the customer & the location
Green buildings
Steel is one of the most sustainable building materials in the world. All steel can be recovered and recycled again and again into new high quality products.
PEB vs Conventional

PEB vs Conventional Buildings

Pre-engineered Buildings (PEB)Conventional Buildings
Structure weight
  • 30% lighter through optimum use of steel, Primary framing members are varying depth sections with larger depths in areas of high stress
  • Secondary members are light gauge (light weight) roll formed 'Z' or 'C' shaped members
  • Primary members selected from standard sections, which can be heavier than required, Members have constant cross-sections regardless of local stresses along member length
  • Secondary members are selected from standard hot rolled 'I' or 'C' sections, which are heavier
  • Quick and efficient, since basic designs can be reused and built upon
  • Specialized computer analysis and design programs optimize material required. Computerized drafting using standard details minimizes custom details.
  • PEB engineers design & detail almost every day throughout the year resulting in faster & more efficient designs.
  • Each structure designed from scratch
  • Substantial engineering & detailing required on every project. Generalized computer analysis is require extensive input/output & design alterations.
  • Each project is a separate case, engineers need more time to develop the design & details of the unique structure.
  • 6 to 8 weeks on average
  • 20 to 26 weeks on average
  • Simple design, easy to construct
  • Extensive, heavy foundations required
Erection cost and Time
  • Both costs & erection time are accurately known. Erected by specialized PEB builders with extensive experience in erection of similar buildings. A stock of standard components enables on-time job completion should any shortage or on-site damage occur to materials.
  • Erection process is easy, fast, step-by-step and with minimum equipment requirement
  • In most cases, erection costs and time are not estimated accurately
  • Erection is slow and extensive since more field labour and heavy equipment are often required
Seismic Resistance
  • Low-weight, flexible frames offer higher resistance to seismic forces
  • Heavy, rigid structures do not perform well in high-risk seismic zones
Overall Price
  • Price per square meter may be up to 30% lower than conventional buildings
  • They have a higher price per square meter than PEB
Architectural Design
  • Outstanding architectural design can be achieved at low cost using standard architectural features and interface details.
  • Special architectural design and features must be developed for each project, which often require research and thus resulting in much higher costs.
Sourcing & Coordination
  • Building is supplied complete with cladding and all accessories including erection (if desired) from one single source.
  • Many sources of supply, project management time is required to coordinate suppliers and sub-contractors.
  • Single source of supply results in total responsibility by one supplier, including design liability. PEB manufacturers can be relied upon to service their buildings long after they are supplied to protect their reputation.
  • Multiple responsibilities can result in questions of who is responsible when components do not fit properly, insufficient material is supplied, or materials fail to perform, particularly at the supplier/contractor interface. The consultant carries total design liability.
  • All components are designed specifically to act together as a system, for maximum efficiency, precise fit, and peak performance in the field.
  • Experience with similar buildings, in actual field conditions, has resulted in design improvements overtime, which allow dependable prediction of performance.
  • Components are custom designed for a specific application on a specific job. Design and detailing errors possible when assembling the diverse components into unique buildings.
  • Each building design is unique, so prediction of how components will perform together is uncertain. Materials which have performed well in some climates may not do so in other environments.

LGS stands for Light Gauge Steel. This technology uses lightweight steel frames and is new in India. It offers several advantages such as speedy construction and erection, cost savings, etc. The steel skeleton for a small house can be produced in the factory and erected on site all within a short time frame of 1-2 weeks. The structure is then cladded on both sides by metal sheets or Magnesium/Gypsum boards and insulation depending on usage. The resulting structure is weather and earthquake resistant. Applications include partition walls, low-cost housing, security cabins, small sheds and more.


Light gauge steel construction is very similar to wood framed construction in principle - the wooden framing members are replaced with thin steel sections. The steel sections used are cold formed sections (formed or given shape at room temperature). This is in contrast to thicker hot rolled sections, that are shaped while the steel is molten hot. Cold formed steel is shaped by guiding thin sheets of steel through a series of rollers, each roller changing the shape very slightly, with the net result of converting a flat sheet of steel into a C or S-shaped section.

The LGS Advantage

The LGS Advantage

  • Steel has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any building material
  • Non-combustible - does not burn or contribute fuel to the spread of a fire
  • Inorganic - will not rot, warp, split, crack or creep
  • Dimensionally stable - does not expand or contract with moisture content
  • Consistent material quality - produced in strict accordance with national standards, no regional variations
  • Low labor cost
  • Sustainable Green Building - 100% Recyclable
  • Speedier technology
  • Affordable & long lasting
  • Does not require heavy concrete foundation as construction is light
  • Escalation of price does not impact much as construction fast
  • Suitable for extreme climates as structure is fully insulated
