Taper Framed Structures also know as Pre Engineered Buildings are some of the most efficient steel buildings when spanning spans in excess of 30 meters. In pre-engineered buildings, the I-beams used are usually formed by welding together steel plates to form the I section. These structures tend to be very efficient with high structural performance on larger span structures.
Brown Engineering has fabricated a number of Megastructures covering upto 20,000m2 with this method. Taper Framed Structures require specific fabrication techniques and equipment which BEG has on its shop floor. A big advantage of this type of structure is the speed of procurement as BEG stocks materials for typical PEB sizes.
