What Are the Advantages of PEB?
Demand for PEB construction (pre-engineered buildings) continues to rise in North America and around the world, and it’s easy to see why. Steel building systems like those supplied and installed by Liberty Steel Buildings Inc. offer a more predictable, cost-effective approach to construction.
Building techniques once limited to industrial warehouses, aviation hangars, hockey rinks, and agricultural structures are quickly expanding to other sectors.
Today, increasing numbers of architects and property owners are choosing steel PEB construction for everything from shopping centres and commercial offices to schools, Fire Halls, Recreation Centres, Wastewater Treatment Facilities,Railway Transfer Facilities, Public Storage Facilities, Aquatic Centres, etc.
Liberty Steel Buildings Inc. in Surrey, BC, has the expertise and connections to carry out your vision with streamlined efficiency. Our ‘Steel Team’ has been refining our pre-engineered build processes since 1998!
So, what makes pre-engineered steel structures so desirable?
Steel Is Time-Tested and Resilient
There are plenty of reasons to choose pre-engineered steel construction for your next building project. It’s durable in all weather conditions and not subject to the same deterioration or material defects as concrete and wood.
The steel components supplied by Liberty Steel Buildings are lightweight yet possess impressive rigidity and deformability for different applications. Liberty Steel Buildings’ pre-engineered steel structures can withstand the harshest elements, including hurricane winds, heavy snowfalls, endless rain, extreme temperatures, and seismic activity.
With inorganic coatings for anti-corrosion, our components won’t require much upkeep in the years ahead. From the primary frame to the secondary structural elements, everything we send out is fabricated in a controlled setting for quality assurances.
Our pre-engineered components are designed to the highest of standards for trouble-free assembly.
Steel PEB Cuts Down on Labour, Build Times, and Waste
When it comes to construction, time is money. Construction labour shortages, tight schedules, and fluctuating steel prices mean you want to do everything possible to reduce the project’s duration.
Depending on the size of the job, projects that would normally take 20-26 weeks to erect can now be scaled back to 6-8 weeks using pre-engineered building plans.
The Bulk of Your Costs are Pre-Determined
With additional control of the construction process, PEB steel construction allows for greater predictability in delivery times. Our BIM engineering and design practices ensure clients are kept in the loop at every phase of development.
When you work with a reputable PEB company like Liberty Steel Buildings Inc., you know exactly how much the construction phase will cost before the work begins.
Steel Is an Eco-Friendly Option
If your company is looking for a green-certified structure, steel is a sustainable material that is recycled as part of its endless life cycle.
Careful planning prevents excess waste and leftover debris at the job site. PEB construction also cuts down on energy consumption and machinery use.
But those aren’t the only eco-friendly benefits.
Steel structures, especially those designed by Liberty Steel Buildings Inc., are engineered for energy efficiency. Steel structures can accommodate more significant quantities of insulation for improved climate control. Our coated steel surfaces also reflect heat to help maintain optimum temperatures during the hottest days.
And because steel buildings are engineered to support a lot of weight, this makes them well suited for adding rooftop solar panels for clean energy use.
Pre-Engineered Steel Buildings Are Adaptable
Not only will steel PEB construction save you weeks of construction labour as the materials are craned and bolted into place, but once the project is complete, it can remain adaptable to future expansion.
The modular nature of prefab construction and its connectable panels means any future additions can be incorporated into the existing design more easily than with conventional structures.
Should the need ever arise, our pre-built steel construction also lends itself to easy dismantling and transport.
PEB Construction Does Not Mean Fixed Designs
At Liberty Steel Buildings, we always tailor our PEB work to meet the client’s practical needs and creative design vision. The Liberty Steel Team can help project owners and architects execute the most simple to the most complex design concepts that other firms would consider impossible. Our team can present you with structural and cladding options to customize your PEB to suit your specific design vision requirements.
