Is there a difference of delivery time
PEB's typically take an average 6 to 8 weeks to fabricate. Conventional steel buildings take an average 20-26 weeks (to include special procurement of required sections).
What is the percentage of saving in foundation costs using PEB systems compared to conventional steel buildings
Due to the difference in structure weight, PEB's reqiure simple design, easy to construct and light weight. Conventional buildings require heavy foundations. We estimate savings to be at least 5%. For fixed bases, the saving could be in excess of 15%.
Is there a difference with erection cost and time between PEB and conventional building
Conventional steel buildings are 20% more expensive than PEB. Members are heavier, need heavy equipment and need extensive field labor.
Is it possible to have concrete slabs for different floors and how is the slab laid above the steel structure
Yes, we can provide steel deck over steel floor framing to receive cast in site slab. The steel deck acts as a shutter to support the wet concrete. The slab should be reinforced and designed for the total floor load.
Are your connections site bolted or welded
All field connections are bolted. There is absolutely no site welding required. This considerably reduces the time for site erection.
Is it possible to dismantle the building and rebuild at another place? What will be the cost of new and reassembled building
Yes, since the building is site assembled by bolting, it is possible to dismantle and rebuild at a new location.
