Technological improvement over the year has contributed immensely to the enhancement of quality of life through various new products and services. In structural Engineering, apart from structural and aesthetic design requirements, the major hurdle was the rate of construction and the safety norms. Development of Pre-Engineering Structure (PES) accelerated the rate of construction maintaining all the safety factors reducing the erection time of the structure. PES has also been satisfying a wide range of aesthetic and structural design requirements. Thus PES fulfils wide range of building configurations, custom designs, requirements and applications. India being one of the fastest growing economies, infrastructure development is inevitable. Thus there is wide scope of PES in India. As compared to other countries Indian codes for building design are stringent but safer. Thus, PES being an upcoming field in construction industry in India, it becomes necessary to study the PES design using IS 800 over AISC, which is discussed further.
