A BETTER WAY TO BUILD

What is PEB ?

Pre engineered buildings construction  are factory-built buildings of steel that are shipped to site and bolted together. No fabrication process is done on site.  Typically PT PBI as the contractor also designs the building – a practice called design & build. This style of construction is ideally suited to industrial buildings and warehouses; it is cheap, very fast to erect, and can also be dismantled and moved to another site (if required).

Great speed is achieved because while the foundations and floor slab are being constructed, the beams and columns – the structural system – are being fabricated in our factory. Once the foundations and floor are done, the columns are shipped to the site, lifted into place by cranes, and bolted together.

Major Components of Pre-Engineered Building

The major components of the PEB are divided into 4 types

1. Main Structures

Primary components of the PEB consists of main rafters and columns.

Being a Pre-Engineered building means we have the advantage to choose the materials we use for our main structure. Depending on the design, our PEB building typically uses high tensile steel conforming to ASTM grade A572 or SM490 grade.

2. Secondary Component

Purlins, Grits bracings and struts are secondary structural members used as support to walls and roof panels.

Our secondary member are made by roll-forming of galvanized steel with hot-dip, zinc coated, chromate-passivated, and high tensile grade steel strip complying to AS1397-1993.

3. Sheeting or Cladding

The sheets used in the construction of pre-engineered buildings are typically made from base metal of either Galvalume coated steel conforming to ASTM A 792 M grade 345B or aluminum conforming to ASTM B 209M which is cold-rolled steel, high tensile 550 MPA yield stress, with hot dip metallic coating of Galvalume sheet.

User can choose from bare zinc colored sheets or the more architecturally pleasing Colorbond steel (a trademark of PT. NS Bluescope Lysaght Indonesia)

4. Accessories

Non-structural parts of the buildings such as bolts, turbo ventilators, skylights, lovers, doors and windows, roof curbs and fasteners make the accessories components of the pre-engineered steel building.

We can custom made all kinds of accesories to suit your building’s function and architectural requirements.

We have worked with both local and global architectural consultants  such as Pinin Farina to create fabulous industrial building design.

Comparison between Pre-Engineered and Conventional Building.

Pre-Engineered Building

Conventional Building

Design

Quick and Efficient design by using specialized software. SOLIDBUILD employs standardized components to speed up design time significantly.

Building Foundations

Much lighter and simpler design due to smaller load bearing requirement of foundation. Increased bay spacing on certain design also results in savings on piling and foundation works.

Weight

Weight of SOLIDBUILD Building system is reduced by two strategy: Efficient use of material in tapered sections, and optimization of material grade

Installation

Installation is simple, step-by-step modular methodology is used. Giving owner assurance of timely and accurate installation.

Architecture

Easily integrate your desired architectural features to SOLIBUILD buildings. Our hybrid system allows limitless material combination

Future Expansion

SOLIDBUILD buildings are designed with future expansion in mind. Expansions are easy, and cost effective.

Responsibility

By investing in SOLIDBUILD Building Systems, you get an integrated service where a single responsibility for design, supply and installation.

Design

Each building is designed from scratch by the designer, with many review and collaborations required, increasing design time.

Building Foundations

Heavy, extensive and rigorous foundation plan required. Increasing cost and installation time.

Weight

Design is forced to employ standard hot-rolled sections which are available on only a few dimensions - resulting in heavier structure.

Installation

Heavier structure requires heavier equipment. Installation time in most cases also take much longer.

Architecture

Special architectural design and features must be developed for each project, it often requires a lot of reseach and involves high cost

Future Expansion

Future expansion often requires heavy modification and coordination between many parties.

Responsibility

Multiple responsibilites requires many checkpoints and questions as to who is responsible when components do not match with other components.
