Building Sustainable and Green Innovations

Kirby Building Systems India is leading the revolution of green construction in the country through its PEB technology.

Pre-engineered steel buildings (PEB) is one of the first choices when it comes to sustainable and green buildings. Kirby Building Systems India (Kirby India) is in the forefront of this innovation and is leading the revolution of green construction in the country through its PEB technology. Steel is the preferred material for all prefab structures, and PEB uses steel which is more than 80 per cent recyclable. 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 on rooftops will meet daylight and captive power requirements, which will reduce their 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 making PEB one of the most preferred green buildings.

Meetings standards
Kirby India designs all the buildings as per national and international standards like AISC, AISI, MBMA, IS, etc. The company takes all the norms of green buildings into consideration during its design stage itself, so that the end-user will reap the benefits leading to saving on raw material and natural resources. As per green building norms, all the industrial buildings should have a certain percentage of natural lighting, air ventilation, very minimal VOC content in paint consumption, SRI value of roof sheeting, etc. Kirby India supplies its buildings with all these conditions but based on the customer's requirement. All the materials supplied by the company are easily recyclable and none of materials are harmful to the. The company is also a member of IGBC.

Kirby India has already supplied PEB to many of its clientele that satisfies all the green building norms laid down by IGBC. Some of the clientele include ITC, Danfoss Industries-Chennai, Bangalore International Exhibition Centre, SKF Technologies-Mysore, Zahoransky Moulds & Machines-Coimbatore, and many more. Because of increasing demand, more and more manufacturing companies are now realising the importance of incorporating sustainability within their overall business strategies.

Similarly, the SKF Technologies facility at Mysore has achieved Gold Rating and Zahoransky Moulds & Machines facility at Coimbatore has received Platinum Rating. These PEB buildings are supplied by Kirby India, and many such facilities across India have received IGBC certification.
