The basic parameters that define a Pre-engineered Building (PEB) are:
No matter what primary framing system is used, the Building Width is defined as the distance from the outside of the eave strut of one sidewall to the outside of the eave strut of the opposite sidewall. Building Width does not include the width of lean-to buildings or roof extensions.
The distance between the outside flanges of endwall columns in opposite endwalls is defined as the Building Length. It is usually a combination of several Bay Lengths.
Building Height is the eave height which is usuallythe distance from the bottom of the main frame column base plate to the top outer point of the eave strut. When columns are recessed or elevated from a finished floor, eave height is the distance from finished floor level to top of eave strut.
This is the angle of the roof with respect to the horizontal. The most common Roof Slopes are 0.5/10 and 1/10. Any practical Roof Slope is possible.
This is the distance from outside of the outer flange of endwall columns to the center line of the first interior frame column.
This is defined as the distance between the center lines of two adjacent interior main frame columns. The most common Bay Lengths are 6 m, 7.5 m and 9 m.
