  • Why use American codes for designing?

    IS codes are more stringent in certain areas like serviceability criteria etc. We recommend accepting American 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 American codes. Also American codes are continually updated based on the latest research findings. Hence these codes result in a more economical and safe building. If the customer requires a building done under a certain code of design like the IS code, Kirby will do so.

  • What is the main difference between current conventional steel construction and Kirby PEB systems of construction?

    Key differences are: - In Kirby PEB System the complete steel building package is delivered to 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. Results 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 continues beams. High strength steel is used. All structural elements are fully optimized by the proprietary computerized design program and hence there is a significant reduction in dead load reactions to the foundations.
