What is PEB ?

In this section, we’ll introduce you to the concept of pre-engineered steel structure buildings and how they can be used to meet a variety of construction needs.

Pre-engineered steel structure buildings are constructed using prefabricated steel components that are manufactured off-site and then assembled on-site. This method of construction allows for faster, more efficient, and cost-effective building compared to traditional building methods.

Pre-engineered steel structure buildings are used in a range of applications, including commercial, industrial, and residential construction. They are highly customizable, with options for various roof pitches, wall panels, colors, and finishes. They are also versatile and can be designed to meet a range of building codes and regulations.

One of the biggest advantages of pre-engineered steel structure buildings is their durability and strength. We use high-tensile steel that is stronger compared to common mild carbon steel and it’s a durable material that is resistant to wear and tear, fire, pests, and weather damage. This makes pre-engineered steel structure buildings ideal for use in areas that experience extreme weather conditions or seismic activity.

Another advantage of pre-engineered steel structure buildings is their sustainability. Steel is a highly recyclable material, and the prefabrication process generates less waste than traditional construction methods. Additionally, steel is energy-efficient, which can lead to lower energy costs over time.

Pre-engineered steel structure buildings can also be designed to be expandable, allowing for future growth or changes in use. They are easy to maintain and require minimal upkeep over their lifetime.

We meticulously design each and every project to suit your requirement, and also to adhere to SNI standard for structural strength and seismic condition.

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


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


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


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.


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


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.


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


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


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.


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