Technological improvement over the years has contributed immensely to enhancement of quality of life through various new products & Services. Another major impact of this phenomenon was the availability of these products & Services in ready to use forms. One such revolution was the pre-engineered steel buildings. Though its origin can be traced back to 1960's its potential has been felt only during the recent years. This was mainly due to the development in technology, which helped in computerizing the design & drawing.
Though initially only off-the shelf products were available in these configuration aided by the technological development, tailor made solutions are also made using this technology in a very short duration. A recent survey by the Metal Building Manufacturers Association (MBMA) shows that about 60% of the non-residential low building in USA Pre-Engineered steel building.
The Pre-Engineered steel building industry is in its infancy in the Indian continent. The significant advantages of this form of construction over conventional structural steel and RCC construction, it is inevitable that PEB system of construction has grossly taken over the Indian construction market to a large extent.
