FAQ's
1). What is the main difference between current conventional steelconstruction in India and the VARDHMAN PEB systems of construction?

VARDHMAN PEB Systems delivers the complete steel building package to the site from a single supplier as a fully finished product. This includes the structural steel, cladding system and building accessories. Site erection is fast and simple - just bolting together the various building components as per the erection drawings provided. No site fabrication or welding is involved. This result in significant saving in construction time and superior quality compared to conventional steel construction.

PEB System is highly efficient in design due to synergy between building components. Primary members are made of tapered built-up sections and roof/wall secondary members from cold rolled sections designed as continuous beams. High strength steel is used. All structural elements are fully optimized by the computerized design program.

2). What are the advantages of VARDHMAN PEB System?

Reduction in project cost:
Cost savings primarily result from above time saving on the Project. This also results in earlier realization of revenue to owner on a commercial project.

Saving in construction time: About 30-50% time saving in total project schedule due to fast delivery and quick site erection.

Low Maintenance: High quality paint systems are available for steel and cladding to be provided along with maintenance free service life.

Large clear spans: Buildings can be supplied in clear spans up to 90 meter, particularly suitable for aircraft hangers, sports facilities, etc…

Flexibility in expansion: Buildings can be designed for future expansion in length, width and height.

Energy efficiency: Buildings are supplied with roof and wall insulation to reduce energy costs and improve comfort level inside the building.

Superior quality: Complete manufacturing is done in plant as per ISO 9001 quality assurance standards.

3). Are PEB systems suitable for Indian and Overseas weather conditions?

Yes, Vardhman has supplied buildings for a range of weather conditions including snow conditions, high desert temperatures, high humidity, proximity to sea, heavy rainfall, cyclone wind speeds, seismic loads, etc… Based on the ambient conditions at site and building usage, we will design and manufacture the building to the specified requirements.

4). Do you provide a complete building package? What about flooring?

We can supply the complete steel building including standard accessories. Accessories that are not manufactured by Vardhman can be supplied as buy outs (Rolled Up Doors, Cranes etc.) and can be included in Vardhman’s scope of supply. For mezzanine floors we will provide the steel framing and steel deck. If the flooring is of pre-cast concrete panels, we will provide the floor supports beams.

 5). Is there any limitation on the minimum size of building?

No, Vardhman Building System can provide a small car park shed to a massive industrial complex comprising thousand of square meters of covered area.

 6). How much is the saving in foundations?

The saving would be basically due to less number of column foundations due to large spans and bay spacing plus reduction in column reactions due to less dead load of steel. It is not possible to quantify the cost savings as it would vary by type of project. Pre-Engineered Building utilize pierced (column) beam as a general rule which results in lighter foundation.

7). How do IS codes compare with American codes?

IS codes are of an old vintage and design and serviceability criteria are based on older materials and do not take into account cost saving with finding high strength materials. We recommend accepting latest International design codes as these have been used literally in millions of PEB buildings in North America and other parts of the world and have a proven record of safety. Each year in the US alone, about 2 Million tons of PEBs are sold based on International codes. Also American codes are continually updated based on the latest research findings. Hence these codes result in a more economical and safe building. IS codes are more conservative and will increase weight and cost without adding value to the building. However, if a client insists on IS codes we will design and supply in accordance with these or any other codes.

8). What is the thickness of your sheeting?

Our Standard sheeting thickness for roof/wall cladding is 26G. These are available in various colors. Other thicknesses can be offered too on special order with comparatively longer delivery time period.

9). How do I get quote for a VARDHMAN PEB?

The inquiry should be sent to our sales office in your region. We will design and price each project based on the specifications provided. We will submit a proposal offer with detailed scope of supply, price, delivery and payment terms. On request, Proposal Drawings with column reactions are provided.
