Google+ Framing Systems | Fast Construction


PEBs have high architectural flexibility allowing easy modification and expansions  in the future .
PEBs are made of steel, a homogenous material , works equally well in stress reversal  conditions in tension or compression
PEB's construction errors can be easily modified on site even after erection unlike concrete structures.
Customers can save 50% time in the PEB project construction compared to a concrete building..
PEBs erection costs low & requires less manpower & construction equipment compared to concrete buildings.  
A PEB requires less than half of the time needed to construct a concrete building of same size...  
PEB frames can be easily dismantled and transferred to another location with low additional expense.
Steel is fully recyclable material whereas concrete is still being looked for recycling.
Cut  Cost by 50%  for PEB having larger clear spans whereas such clear span structure is impossible in concrete structure.

Framing Systems


Framing System

Building Length: Whenever possible maintain equal bay lengths throughout the building. When this is not possible, make all interior bays equal and make the end bays equal.

Example : A 100 m long building will have 10 interior bays at 9 m and 2 end bays at 5 m or 11 interior bays at 8 m and 2 end bays at 6 m.

Building Width: Whenever possible make building width a multiple of 3m. This is because roof purlins are spaced at 1.5m on centres and 3m is equal to two purlin spacings one on each side of the ridge.

Fast Construction pre-engineered buildings are custom designed to meet your exact requirements.

The basic parameters that define a pre-engineered building are :

Building Width : No matter what primary framing systems used, the building width is defined as the distance from outside of eave strut of one sidewall to outside of eave strut of the opposite sidewalk

Building Length : The distance between the outside flanges of endwall columns in opposite end walls is considered the building length. Building length is a combination of several bay length.

End bay length is the distance from outside of the outer flange of endwall columns to center line of the first interior frame columns.

Interior bay length is the distance between the center lines of two adjacent interior main frame columns. The most common bay lengths are 6 m, 7.5 m and 9 m. Any bay length up to 15 m is possible.

Building Height : Building height is the eave height which usually i s the distance from the bottom of the main frame column base plate to the top outer point of the eave strut. Eave heights up to 30 m are possible. When columns are recessed or elevated from finished floor, eave height is the distance from finished floor level to top of eave strut.

Roof Slope (x/10) : This is the angle of the roof with respect to the horizontal. The most common roof slopes are 0.5/10 and 1/10. Any practical roof slope is possible.

Design Loads :
Unless otherwise specified Fast Construction pre-engineered buildings are designed for the following minimum loads:

  • Roof Live Load : 0.57 kN/m2
  • Design Wind Speed :120 km/h

Design for snow loads, earthquake loads, collateral loads, or any other local climatic condition (if required) must be specified at time of quotation.

Loads are applied in accordance with the latest International codes and standards applicable to pre-engineered buildings, as mentioned on the next page.
