Pre-Engineered Metal Building (PEMB) Projects
Pre-engineered metal and steel buildings can offer significant savings over traditional framing techniques--both in cost and schedule. In typical fire stations, results have shown material cost savings of approximately 15 percent and schedule reductions that cut delivery times by two months. The schedule savings also result in additional cost savings in labor, insurance, lease of temporary facilities and other such expenses.
The ability to construct wide open spans provides flexibility to accommodate various uses. Public agencies are finding PEMBs provide flexible, durable framework for apparatus bays, indoor sports facilities, community centers, and large equipment storage for corp yards.
Employing experienced teams--designers, construction managers, project engineers and contractors--is essential. Ensuring proper protocols are in place throughout all phases of development, from conceptual designs through construction and delivery, can maximize the cost and schedule savings realized utilizing PEMB framing techniques.
