Long Span, Column free structures are the most essential in any type of industrial structures. Pre-Engineered Building (PEB) concept is a new concept in
the construction of single storey steel industrial building which fulfils this requirement along with reduced time and cost as compared to conventional structures. The
objective of this paper is to analyze and designs a Pre-Engineered Building (PEB) using cold formed steel ‘Z’ purlin section and compare it with Conventional Steel
Building (CSB) with fink type truss. The objective is achieved by designing a typical frame system o f a proposed Industrial Workshop Building using both the
concepts and analyzing the designed frames using the structural analysis and design software Staad Pro V8i.
