Satec: The brand in pre-engineered buildings

Today, many companies in India are adopting new manufacturing technology for the erection of the plants. Pre-Engineered Buildings (PEB's) are the latest trend in the country. PEB's are made putting together readymade blocks and the cost of these buildings is 20 -25 per cent lower than conventional concrete buildings. The current potential of demand in India as per data from economic times is around 1.2 million tonne. Satec Envir Engineering has entered pre-engineered building space understanding the huge demand and supply gap. We have expertise of more than 2 decades in engineering products and state of art manufacturing to back up any big turnkey project.  

Currently, the demand for PEBs is driven largely by the growth in manufacturing, retail and the logistics sector. The real estate consultants feel there is a lot of scope for this industry to grow, as many multinational companies in auto, retail, information technology, logistics and others have opened their production base in India.


Satec today is preferred choice of many customers due to innovation and customisation it provides in the steel solutions. The company also offers pre engineered steel buildings, storage solutions, industrial racking systems and broad array of structural steel products that cover major market segments including oil and gas, heavy industry, infrastructure, high rise building warehouse factories and leisure structure. Our customers can be found across the country and abroad.


Why pre-engineering buildings?
 Pre- engineered building is metal building that consists of light gauge metal standing seam roof panels on steel purlins spanning between rigid frames with light gauge metal wall cladding. Pre engineered building system is one of the fastest growing steel building systems in the world. It offers speed, quality and values its ideal for any non- residential low rise buildings. Advantage of PEB are fast erection, lower cost as compared to other conventional building set up and structure can easily be expanded.


The primary framing structure of a pre-engineered building is an assembly of I-shaped members, often referred as I- beams. In pre-engineered buildings, the I- beams used are usually formed by welding together steel plates to form the I section. The I -beams are then field-assembled (e.g. bolted connections) to form the entire frame of the pre-engineered building. Some manufacturers taper the framing members (varying in web depth) according to the local loading effects. Larger plate dimensions are used in areas of higher load effects.


Other forms of primary framing can include trusses, mill sections rather than 3-plate welded, castellated beams, etc. The choice of economic form can vary depending on factors such as local capabilities (e.g. manufacturing, transportation, construction) and variations in material vs. labour costs.


Typically, primary frames are 2D type frames (i.e. may be analyzed using 2-Dimensional techniques). Advances in computer aided design technology, materials and manufacturing capabilities have assisted a growth in alternate forms of Pre-engineered building such as the Tension Fabric building and more sophisticated analysis (e.g. 3-Dimensional) as is required by some building codes.


Cold formed Z and C-shaped members may be used as secondary structural elements to fasten and support the external cladding. Roll-formed profiled steel sheet, wood, tensioned fabric, precast concrete, masonry block, glass curtain wall or other materials may be used for the external cladding of the building.


In order to accurately design a pre-engineered building, engineers consider the clear span between bearing points, bay spacing, roof slope, live loads, dead loads, collateral loads, wind uplift, deflection criteria, internal crane system and maximum practical size and weight of fabricated members. Historically, pre-engineered building manufacturers have developed pre-calculated tables for different structural elements in order to allow designers to select the most efficient I beams size for their projects. However, the table selection procedures are becoming rare with the evolution in computer aided custom designs.


While pre-engineered buildings can be adapted to suit a wide variety of structural applications, the greatest economy will be realised when utilising standard details. An efficiently designed pre-engineered building can be lighter than the conventional steel buildings by up to 30 per cent. Lighter weight equates to less steel and a potential price savings in structural framework.


PEB is the future and Satec Envir Engineering believes in delivering innovative technology solutions to its customers. Our manufacturing is based in Gujarat and we have strategic location advantage to undertake projects in Gujarat, Maharashtra and Rajasthan. Pre engineered means, generally speaking, is any part of a structure that is manufactured prior to its arrival on the building site. The concept of the pre-engineered building (PEB) is one where the fabrication is completed in a controlled environment with the latest technology, and then subsequent erection is carried out. 


Although PEB systems are extensively used in industrial and many other nonresidential constructions worldwide, it is relatively a new concept in India. These concepts were introduced to the Indian markets in the late 1990's with the opening up of the economy; and a number of multi nationals setting up their projects. The current pre engineered steel building manufacturing capacity is 6.0 lakh tonne per annum. The industry is growing at the compound rate of 25 to 30 per cent. 


A healthy trend in the form of growth in demand for construction works in residential, commercial, institutional industrial and infrastructure sectors are being seen over the past decade. Modern structures are much more complex and sophisticated as compared to earlier period. One of the major changes which are being felt by all is that the present structures are taller and thinner. Modern day requirement of structures is that these should be lighter yet not compromising on functionality. Civil engineering construction has seen a continual economic competition between steel, concrete and other construction materials.


Satec envir engineering has been a market leader in the pre engineered buildings and prefab buildings and has capacity of manufacturing steel structure of more than 25,000 metric tonne per annum. Satec has adopted ISO 9001:2008 quality management system to ensure high quality of product and services. Latest technology machines for H beam welding, H type steel flange straightening machine and H beam shot blasting machines are all as per latest technology practiced abroad. The manufacturing unit in Bhuj Gujarat has state of the art machinery and we provide customised products as per client's requirement.


Satec has worked with many big brands like Essar, L&T, Jindal Steel and Power, Monnet, Indian Oil & Reliance to name a few. Satec's team of professionals ensures that the project is managed smoothly and without any wastage of time or material products are delivered on time.


Pre-engineered buildings market is growing at a fast pace and Satec is keeping up with the trend. Still only 33 per cent people are opting for new technology in commercial buildings and in near future the market size is going to increase. We are currently scaling up our manufacturing unit to add more production capacity. We have installed new roll forming machines for c purlins and z purlins and due to strategic location of our company near to essar steel processing plant adds up to advantage of providing steel structures in big quantities at any given point. As per latest trends, Satec is optimistic about the growth in the number of commercial construction adopting new trend of pre-engineered buildings in the near future.
