MULTISTOREY BUILDING CONSTRUCTION


Multistorey Building Construction in Chennai


What is multi storey building?

A multi-storey building is one that has more than four levels and can have up to twelve or more. They are more common in larger towns and cities. The availability of resources, the level of construction technology, and the availability of services such as elevators required for use in the building all influence the construction of multi-storey buildings. Steel is widely utilized in the construction of multi-storey structures in industrialized countries, but steel is rarely used in the construction of multi-storey frames in India, despite the fact that it has proven to be a better material than reinforced concrete.

Classification and Benefits of Multi-Storey Building Construction

A multi-storey building is a three-dimensional or light-weight steel structure with numerous storeys with vertical circulation provided by elevators and staircases. For these buildings of varied heights, several methodologies have been utilized based on preliminary analysis and verification. A multi-storey building is typically constructed to function as a hospital, a shopping mall, or an apartment complex.Due to the use of high levels of material pre-fabrication, planning accuracy, top quality checks, and risk-free construction, multi-storey structures are faster to construct than other traditional buildings. Multi-storey buildings are grouped into the following categories based on their height, requirement, and other criteria.

Low Rise building: A low-rise multi-storey building has a limited number of storeys (usually less than four) and relies on elevators and stairwells for vertical circulation.

Mid Rise building: The number of storey’s in a mid-rise building ranges from four to twelve.

High Rise building: With the use of lifts and stairs, a High Rise building has a number of storey’s ranging from 12 to 40.

Skyscraper building: Sky Scrapper Multi storey building is a tall and habitable steel building with more than 40 storey’s but less than 300m in height.

Super tall building: It is a steel building with a height of more than 300 metres.

Mega tall building:It is a steel structure with a height of over 600 metres.

Benefits of multi storey buildings

Budget-friendly - When a building is being built, the amount of money spent on labour and equipment is lower than it would be for other types of structures.

The weight is light - Floors of Multistorey steel Buildings are exceptionally light in weight due to the usage of light weight slabs and steel, making these buildings stunning and keeping them overall less in weight than other traditional buildings.

Freedom for designing: One of the most important characteristics of multi-storey buildings is their geometric freedom, which allows them to be more creative than other types of structures.

Construction is highly mechanized - Steel is used in the installation of multi-storey buildings because it is not only a construction material but also a technical prowess. Steel components used in the installation of multi-storey buildings are made with well-mechanized practice and high precision software to achieve accuracy in construction.

Access to Fire Protection - These structures are designed and built with suitable fire safety precautions in mind to prevent life-threatening situations.

Ventilation and natural light - Productivity is boosted by exposure to natural light and proper ventilation. Natural light and ventilation are abundant in multi-storey buildings.

Strong framework - PEB multi-storey buildings are designed to provide a strong construction that also exhibits high seismic resistance.

The Benefits of Using Pre-Engineered Multi-Storey Buildings

The ability to provide column-free floor spans, circulation space, a speedier and more efficient construction process, and the economic benefits they bring by being recyclable have made pre-engineered steel structures extremely popular in the commercial sector. A multi-storey PEB is an added bonus because it allows you to get the same results for a fraction of the expense and earn the desired ROI in record time.

PEB has a shorter building timeline.

Pre-engineered steel building projects just require assembly on the job site, with the rest of the work finished in the factory. As a result, they are completed quickly, resulting in a high rate of interest (ROI). When using a Pre-Engineered building, a project that may take a year to complete in civil construction can be completed in seven to eight months.

PEB expands the area that can be used.

PEB constructions have a wider span width, which means they have more usable space. PEB slab width is also smaller than that of civil structures, resulting in a larger usable area in terms of height.

PEBs can have a concrete-like finish on the walls.

ACC blocks, which are lightweight and may be put on the walls with steel columns or rafters of Pre-Engineered buildings, can give a concrete-like appearance from the outside. They not only provide the structure a civil building finish from the outside, increasing its aesthetic value, but they also speed up and lighten the construction process.

Green building certification is available for steel structures.

Steel structures are considered green structures because steel is 100% recyclable without sacrificing quality. PEB buildings are both environmentally and economically beneficial due to their ability to be recycled multiple times. We receive a Green building accreditation if we construct a Pre-Engineered steel building. This is not only good for the environment, but it also gives us a commercial advantage.

PEBs are a fantastic investment.

Pre-Engineered Buildings are an excellent long-term investment. Steel scrap can also be transformed into high-value steels with the right processing processes. Even if we decide to stop using a PEB and deconstruct it after thirty or forty years, the entire structure will have a high scrap value, allowing us to recoup a significant portion of our initial investment. Even if we dismantle our PEB system, we can recoup about 60% of our investment. In contrast, if we decide to stop utilizing or remove a civil building structure, we are left with no way to recover our investment. Pre-engineered structures are simple to deconstruct and relocate.

PEB buildings are easy to deconstruct and transfer because they are constructed on the construction site with nuts and bolts. If we need to move the steel PEB to another location for any reason, we may easily do so because the parts are light and easy to dismantle.
