Chapter – 1PRE-ENGINEERED STEEL BUILDINGS SYSTEMSINTRODUCTION
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 (PEB). Though its origin can betraced back to 1960’s, its potential has been felt only during the recent years. This wasmainly due to the development in technology, which helped in computerize the design &drawing.Though initially only off-the shelf products were available in these configurations, aided by the technological development, tailor made solutions are also made using thistechnology in a very short duration. A recent survey by the Metal Building Manufacturers Association (MBMA) shows that about 60% of the non-residential low rise building inUSA are Pre-Engineered steel buildings.The pre-engineered steel building industry is in its infancy in the Indian sub-continent. However, with the setting up of the state-of-the-art Kirby Building SystemsManufacturing plant near Hyderabad and the significant advantages of this form of construction over conventional structural steel and RCC construction, it is inevitable that  PEB system of construction would soon dominate the Indian construction market.Unfortunately, design schools and the textbooks tend to ignore this type of construction,apparently assuming that it belongs to manufacturer’s domain. The principal objective of this is to present architects, engineers, contractors, construction specifiers, facilitymanagers and building officials with enough information to enable them to makeintelligent decisions in their design and evaluation activities. Pre-engineered Buildingsoffer complete freedom of design to accommodate the customer needs.
