Pre-engineered Steel Building - A big trend for construction in 2021 and the future


The global market has witnessed a considerable growth of smart and simple houses, which are trendy because they are less expensive and the optimization of used areas. Outstandingly, Pre-engineered building is one of the best solutions in construction. Why has this type of engineering become so hot recently? Let’s explore with BMB Steel to figure out more information about the tendency to apply the Pre-engineered building in the modern design of 2021. 

1. What is a Pre-engineered Building System?

The main material of this system is bearing capacity steel. Pre-engineered Buildings use steels to erect, connect and fabricate to form a complete frame and play a vital role in load-bearing for the house. Additionally, accompanied by a Pre-engineered Buildings System, other supporting utensils such as the basement, wooden beam, prism, girder, etc., also assist in making the house strong and securely protected.

Steel framed houses or any type of houses all have pros and cons. However, in the context of dramatic change and development in industry and economics, the Pre-engineered Building System gradually occupies the spotlight in engineering and construction. There are some strengths and weaknesses of this system, such as:


  • The first feature to be mentioned in terms of advantages is the applicability of steel frame houses in contemporary life. Many fields need applying a Pre-engineered Building System. For instance,  business companies can utilize this system of construction for the purposes of using storage or warehouses. In the field of transport for parking or in the military field, steel frame houses can be used as training yards, weapons depots, etc. In Particular, they can be used to make very convenient civil housing or community houses.
  • Secondly, a noteworthy feature of the Pre-engineered Building Systemis its reasonable price and even cheaper than other kinds of engineering. Besides, its durability and ease in maintenance are two key factors that make this type of construction exceptional when compared with the others.
  • Thirdly, with the flexibility and ease in installation, maintenance, or replacement of accessories, a Pre-engineered Building System makes it convenient for families and customers, especially those who live in narrow or difficult areas.  


Contrary to the advantages mentioned above, there are some disadvantages:

  • Steels, metals, and other materials will be easily corroded if they are not good quality or combined improperly. 
  • These materials have poor fire resistance, so at present, most investors have come up with solutions to overcome problems such as concrete coating, ceramic plate coating, fire prevention paint, ...

Load bearing design


  • Time-consuming
  • Conducted at the construction site, which makes it difficult for many reasons
  • Time-saving
  • Conducted and produced at the factory and assembled at the construction sites


  • Long term durability but difficult to upgrade, repair
  • Long term durability and easy to guarantee, upgrade and repair


  • High construction cost
  • High cost incurred
  • High package cost, but guaranteed for a long run 
  • Low cost incurred

4. Requirements of Pre-engineered Building Design

To improve setbacks and impediments in experiencing steel-framed houses. The designers have to meet these demands:

  • Optimizing and ensuring quality construction materials.
  • Ensuring the load-bearing capacity of the steel frame, do not let the material deform, etc.
  • Minimizing cost for investors if possible. For example, in the material handling process, etc.
  • Making sure the design meets the standards set out in the technical drawings. Besides, designers have to concentrate on the aesthetic factors of the product.

The construction process is divided into many short steps to minimize conducting time and the cost incurred for investors. There are three steps in general:

  • Design drawing board
  • Structural processing
  • Erection of pre-engineered steel buildings

6. What designers should notice when constructing a pre-engineered building

When building a pre-engineered house, designers need to carefully pay attention to the surrounding factors of the construction terrain in order to consider whether the construction drawing design is reasonable with the actual conditions or not. As a result, the project will be built standardly.

Additionally, designers have to research and find materials and structures of high quality and suitable to the nature of the work, limit waste, and avoid incompatibility when constructing the work.

Some noteworthy notes that designers should consider working accurately can contact a company specializing in designing and constructing steel frame houses for reference and cooperation.

7. Cost of a pre-engineered building

The cost of building steel-framed houses on the market today is about 10 - 30% lower than that of armored concrete houses. Therefore,  this is the ideal price for those who want to own a cheap and sustainable house.

Factors that affect costs can be listed as:

  • Location and scale
  • Utilities, performance
  • Architectural structures
  • Construction time
  • Construction material
