Pre-Engineered Steel Building (PEB) industry is one of the fastest growing technologies in the construction sector. It is an advanced, futuristic, eco-friendly and sustainable construction technology which has grown by leaps and bounds over the last two decades of its existence in India. The industry has evolved from designing, manufacturing and constructing simple box like warehouse buildings to very complex industrial buildings with 500 MT cranes to power plants & steel plants to high rise structures to data centers, each of which is unique, complex and innovative in nature, thereby providing customers with the latest & updated designs, fabricated components & construction methodologies with high safety standards.
Kirby Building Systems & Structures India Pvt Ltd (Kirby India) is a pioneer & market leader in design, fabrication, supply & construction of highly customized & quality PEB for industrial, warehousing, infrastructure, commercial, institutional and many other specialty applications. The major change they brought through PEB is 'single source responsibility' where a complete structure right from engineering to fabrication to construction is handled by one company providing one stop solution to customers.

Steel buildings are steadily increasing their market share in the construction and civil engineering sector. Steel construction is a good option for a diversity of projects for many reasons, including Durability, Affordability and Sustainability. Steel is versatile in nature, tensile, highly durable, recyclable, scrap value and can withstand external pressures such as earthquakes when used in the form of a building. It has a high strength to weight ratio, which means it has high strength per unit mass. So, no matter how large the overall structure is, the steel sections are stronger than other building materials and has a good load carrying capacity. Steel can be easily fabricated, as it is flexible and can be moulded into any shape without changing its properties and also converted into sheets or other products as per the design.

PEB is one of the choices when it comes to sustainable and eco-friendly construction, as steel is 100 percent recyclable and can be reused for making other products again and again when compared to conventional buildings. Kirby India is leading the green construction in the country through its PEB technology, thereby contributing to the green building movement with the company being a member of Indian Green Building Council (IGBC).
These buildings are cost effective, energy efficient and provide better quality environment, as they are cooler in hot conditions due to the favourable roofing material, suitable insulation and natural ventilation. The use of skylights and solar panels mounted on rooftops of industrial buildings also meet daylight and captive power requirements, which reduces the dependence on power supply from other sources, and at the same time, reduce emissions and gain carbon credits under clean development mechanism. Effective usage of insulation material, louvers and other materials also help in temperature control and rainwater harvesting.
The company takes any type of project, whether it is small or big without any size limitation, catering to all kinds of customers like Indian corporates, multinationals from manufacturing & service segments, warehouse owners, logistics park developers, entrepreneurs, builders, developers, contractors, architects, and others, belonging to all industry segments and their sub segments. Being a pioneer and market leader in steel construction in India, Kirby is a one-stop destination for customers as their most trusted partners for their steel building requirement and turn their dream into reality by becoming a part of their journey in growth and success.
