The dynamic advancements in the pre-engineered building(PEB)industry is witnessing the dawn of a new realm within the construction industry. In the matured market like the US,70 percent of all new commercial buildings erected are pre-engineered buildings. Since the structural parts get manufactured in controlled facilities away from the worksite, PEB structures not only drastically contribute towards ease, speed and cost of construction, but also results in cleaner worksite, which doubles the workspeed. Above all, the use of qualitative material and high-end technology at every stage of construction from design to manufacturing and installation, makes Astal PEB unique.

But in an industry that vows to sustainability, the real question is, 'how' to recognize a genuine partner who can take you to the pinnacle of PEB advantages? The most important parameters to consider are knowledge, infrastructure's robustness, technologies used and most importantly, quality & sustainability. Meeting and being consistent with these parameters has been the success recipe of Astal Interbuild Pvt. Ltd. a PEB manufacturer and a one-stop-solution for all industrial & warehouse infrastructure requirements.

Boasting of its wisdom for a short period of time in the industry, and backlifted by its state of art manufacturing infrastructure in Bangalore (at Peenya), Astal has created its own niche in the industry by delivering its commitments on quality, time innovations, and technologies. It's a customer centric
solution hub with utmost transparency in its approach.

Making a Difference
While almost all other manufacturers start with a rough quotation of the cost without a preliminary drawing(causing additional effort & cost), Astal includes a free of cost preliminary drawing in its quotation,investing the efforts of skilled CAD engineers. They engage high-end software like AUTOCAD, STADD PRO, TEKLA, and others, to optimize the cost & space, and in turn make the whole process transparent and interactive."Through our preliminary drawing, we convey how the building will look like,"asserts Ajay Kumar, Managing Director, Astal Interbuild.

Astal not only renders price quotation to clients on initial meeting, but also supplies preliminary section drawing based on their requirements totally free of cost

The execution is still the biggest challenge. In fact, if the clients make the mistake(which they often do) of blindly choosing the vendor who quotes the lowest amount without mentioning the meticulous particulars like raw materials used, standards and specifications, they have already jeopardized the execution phase. When the price of raw materials hikes amidst the execution, they never go for a cheap quality to save the price. This is exactly where Astal makes a huge difference. The company never deceives the clients with dreamy price points and instead offers immense value for their money.

Astal’s primary quotation itself includes the brands & quality of material used and their ISI & BS standard codes.

In other words, there are no surprises en route. No matter what, the company neither dilutes the quality promised nor exceeds the time stipulations. Astal’s flawless designs, innovative mindset and skilled project management team make this possible. No wonder its portfolio, which spans across 10 lakh square feet, involves prestigious clients such as Larsen & Toubro Ltd(at Attibele),Jindal (Bangalore), Bisleri(Bangalore), Metro Rail Noida, GVK (Bangalore), Luwa (Bangalore), Karnataka Police Housing Corporation (Bangalore), CISCO (Bangalore), The Art of Living(Bangalore), and many more.

A Bright Future
Going forward, Astal's R&D is oiling its engines, working towards more sustainable engineering and optimization. "With our new fully automated plant of 20,000 square feet area coming-up, we are looking forward to double our portfolio by the end of 2020,"concludes Ajay Kumar. The global PEB Market is projected to reach $25 billion by 2024, and with this opportunity, Astal is setting new benchmarks in the industry, and a bright future for the company is a sure bet.
