The  high  design  quality  which  can  be seen in the factory architecture of the leading companies in  Europe  and  the  United  States  is  already  well  known.

  With   the   increasingly   serious   problem   of   global warming in recent years, attention is now focused on the environmental performance of buildings. Buildings have a controlling effect on long-term energy efficiency and environmental impacts, and those in the industrial sector to which manufacturing industries belong are no exception.

For companies, industrial buildings such as factories and  warehouses  support  everyday  operations,  and  are not  only  basic  infrastructure  which  forms  the  working environment  of  employees,  but  also  affect  operating costs,  including  energy  costs,  maintenance  cost, which steadily accumulate each year. “In  comparison  with  buildings  in  other  sectors,  the design ability  and  design  quality  of  industrial  buildings are  seldom  noticed,  but  for  a  company  which  aims  to coexist  with  its  local  community  and  secure  excellent human  resources,  while  continuing  to  develop  in  the global  economy,  the  design  of  factory  architecture  is an  important  element  which  symbolises or publicises  the company’s  corporate  culture  and  workplace  environment,  and  inspires  trust  in  the  community  and  attracts human resources,” says Arun Shrimant Dabhade Patil, Marketing Director, Yashraj Steel Building Solution.

The  high  design  quality  which  can  be seen in the factory architecture of the leading companies in  Europe  and  the  United  States  is  already  well  known. India has also entered an era where high design quality is demanded in factory architecture.

Patil shares some of the benefits of pre-engineered buildings:
• Optimised design of steel reducing weight
• Easy future expansion or modification
• Voluminous space (up to 60 metres clear spans, 30 metres eave heights)
• Weather proof
• No fire hazards
• International quality standards
• Seismic and wind pressure resistant
• Quality design, manufacturing and erection
• Quick delivery and quick turn-key construction
• Architectural versatility
• Energy efficient roof and wall system using Rockwool and PUF insulation
• Water-tight roofs and wall coverings
• Pre-painted and has low maintenance requirement
• Easy integration of all construction materials
• Erection of the building is fast
• Building can be dismantled and relocated easily
• Future extensions can be easily accommodated without much hassle.

Developed countries have shifted to PEB structures as it is fast and easy to build at low cost. For increased use of PEB structures, shift in mindset that concrete is the only default construction material in the buildings segment needs to be changed. There is a recent trend of using metal buildings as an option for affordable housing in various developing countries including India. These are typically small metal buildings, complete with civil foundations, electrical, plumbing and drainage solutions. To join the growth story as developed countries, the time has come to understand and start using PEB structures in all types of constructions.

Pre-engineered steel buildings use a combination of built-up sections, hot rolled sections and cold formed elements which provide the basic steel frame work with a choice of single skin sheeting with added insulation or insulated sandwich panels for roofing and wall cladding. The concept is designed to provide a complete building envelope system which is air tight, energy efficient, optimum in weight and cost and, above all, designed to fit user requirement like a well fitted glove.
