Use of Steel Structures in the Indian Construction Industry

Source: Use of Steel Structures in the Indian Construction Industry

In India, structural steel has traditionally been fabricated on-site, mainly due to lack of infrastructure for transporting heavy sections from an off-site workshop to project site. Moreover, there is often insufficient space at a site to set up a fabrication workshop, while inexpensive skilled labor is at a premium. These issues can always be mitigated by pre-engineered buildings, which are fabricated in a workshop elsewhere.

Though the Indian model for the fabrication of structural steel differs from the model followed by developed countries, the trend is slowly but surely changing. India is now gradually moving away from onsite fabrication to workshop delivery models, which are proving to be more efficient in terms of quality and timelines. This helps to reduce the time and cost of execution, and is expected to fuel the demand for steel structures in India.

Structural steel is being selectively used in the construction of high-rise buildings, with three to four projects using steel or composite structures being built each year in India, mainly in metropolitan cities that are constrained by limited land availability. Concrete still remains the default construction material in the building segment in India, but industry reports suggest that the share of building segment is expected to increase overall demand for steel structures now that developers are beginning to recognize the benefits of structural steel.

Straight Column Steel Building- Oriental Peb


By reading this blog you will understand about Straight Column Steel Buildings. And also we will discuss the 7 Types of Steel Building Frames. Why Steel Buildings? There are many benefits if we use a steel building structure. Its light in weight, durability, strength flexibility, low maintenance cost, can do fabrications easy according to its shape, etc.



  • Straight Column
  • Single Slope
  • Tampered Column
  • Lean-to
  • 1 Row Modular Span
  • 2 Row Modular Span
  • 3 Row Modular Span

Straight Column Steel Building

Out of these 7 Steel Building Structures, most engineers use Straight Column Steel Building Structure. Because it is very easy for doing interior work after once the structure work is finished. As the frame of straight column steel building is less we will get more interior space than getting from any other structure.

Best Pre Engineered Buildings Kerala – Oriental PEB Kerala


Pre Engineered Building is designed by a PEB supplier and manufacturer. PEB is a metal type building which is the design and builds in the manufactured plant by PEB supplier or PEB manufacturer, all components are shipped to the site and are assembled and erected at site with nuts and bolts. OrientalPEB explain the Benefits of PEB,” Range and scope”, Structure of PEB, in OrientalPEB website the link is given below

Best Pre Engineered Buildings


Benefits of Pre-Engineered Building

  • Construction time

PEB reduces the total time comparing other buildings. reduce the total time by the least 30 to 40% minute because of the use of tapered built-up sections, high strength steel, which are optimized by the computerized design program and the use of continuous light gauge secondary steel section

  • Lower Cost

There is a significant Saving is accomplished in design, manufacturing and worksite erection costs manufacturing and erection cost.

  • Easy to Erect

PEB easy to Erect because all components are erectable.

  • Low maintenance

PEB has low maintenance and easy to maintain. PEB has high-quality paint systems for cladding which gives long durability and low maintenance costs.

  • Quality Control

Pre-Engineered buildings are manufactured completely in the factory under controlled conditions, the quality of the building is assured.

Sandwich PUF Panels|User’s Guide

A Brief Introduction to Sandwich Panels

Sandwich panels|users guide

Construction techniques for sandwich panels have experienced tremendous improvement in the last 40 years. Sandwich panels were previously considered items only suitable for practical constructions and industrial buildings. However, their strong insulation properties, their versatility, durability and attractive visual appearance resulted in an increasing and widespread use of the panels

Polyurethane Foam Panel shorlty said as PUF panels. Todays world the role of PUF panels are become great.It is very important product in construction technology with numerous advantages.It can also be called as Sandwich panels.It is a panel with composite roof and cladding materials.It is of three layers;A thin skin-layer to each side, and a density core.Sandwich panels are used in applications where a combination of high structural stiffness and low weight is needed.

Sandwich panels are prefabricated materials intended for use in industrial and office buildings as building envelopes, clean and cold rooms as well as private houses (renovations and new ones). Their characteristics allow to have high quality products with high design flexibility. The sandwich panels have a high level of energy efficiency and longevity.

Some of the Features of Sandwich panels

  • Higher Energy saving due to the low conductivity
  • It is cost Efficient
  • Very easy to install
  • Resistance of cold and Heat
  • Long lasting
  • environment friendly

Applications of Sandwich Panels:

  • Schools and Museums
  • Restaurants and Theatres
  • Airport Terminals
  • Warehouses
  • Data centres

Some of the properties of Sandwich Panels:

  • Speed and Easy Installation
  • Rigidity
  • Light weight
  • Low cost
  • It is durable and high quality
  • Weather resistance
  • Low noice pollution

Sandwich panels are prefabricated materials intended for use in industrial and office buildings as building envelopes, clean and cold rooms as well as private houses (renovations and new ones). Their characteristics allow to have high quality products with high design versatility. The sandwich panels do have a high energy efficiency and sustainability.

Steel or Concrete-Which is Builder’s Choice

Steel and Concrete are two essential building materials used for construction. Many key decision needs to be taken before choosing an effective option and to decide which method can give good results.

steel or concrete

Here we compare the advantages and disadvantages of Structural Steel against concrete.

Comparison between Structural Steel and Concrete

1 . COST

Construction materials cost depends entirely on the geographical location of the project and the availability of the materials.

Structural Steel : Price of Steel can vary, it typically remains a less expensive choice compared to reinforced concrete. Nowadays a large majority of all steel manufactured from recycled materials. This makes the steel much cheaper when compared to other materials.

Concrete : Concrete is poured and worked with directly onsite, the process to completion can be lengthy and costs higher labor charger. Building the box or container for pouring concrete takes some cost.

2 . Sustainability

Structural Steel : Recently used structural steel is made using recycled materials. Due to its long lifetime, steel and its structural integrity can be used as well as modified many times.

Concrete : The elements used in concrete are natural to our environment, less harmful to our world. Concrete can be used for future mixtures. This kind of recycling will reduce the amount of cement in waste disposal.

3 . Fire Resistance

Structural Steel : Steel is a substance that is not normally flammable.Even though steel can be gently weakened when heated to extreme temperatures.

Concrete : Concrete has a great fire resistance properties. But while construction there is other materials also used. They can be inflammable. Fire-hazardous materials will be required to prevent potential problems in the overall design.

4 . Corrosion

Structural Steel : Steel can corrode when water comes into contact. By painting steel we can prevent contact with water and corrosion.

Concrete : If concrete constructed properly, It has excellent corrosion resistance properties. However, Reinforced concrete must not be exposed to water in order to prevent its corrosion as this could gradually reduce the strength of the structure.
