Abstract: In these days, the cost and time of construction is in more priority for the client with the large working area for various uses. For the economically and minimum loss of material, pre-engineered building system (PEBs) has many advantage, because it gives more column free space at low cost. Pre-engineered metal buildings are more reliable for various uses like complex industrial facilities, warehouses and distributioncenters, stock-house, shopping malls, resort, motor court, office, cabin, service complex, aircraft-hanger, athletics and fun stadium, study places, temples, hospitals, and any types of industrial structures. In the pre-engineered metal building system, the rigid frame consists of slab, wall are connected with primary member (beam and column). This frame can spanlarge spacing without any intermediate columns. The frameswidths are spaced at spacing between 15 m to 60 m and span can increase with column-free up to 300 m in proposed building structures. Therefore in this paper, an attempt has been made to analyze a pre-engineered metal building with a span of 40 m with the help of finite element based software ETABS (2013). For the comparison, for the same span of 40 m length a conventional steel building is analyzed in same software. The results were found from both analysis indicated the pre-engineered steel building is economic with the conventional steel building as well as stablealso.
