Abstract: Industrial building is used to store any manufacturing products. Mostly these buildings are constructed with steel material. Ordinary steel structure are made up of truss as a roofing system with roof top covering, it is called as conventional steel building (CSB). Pre engineering building (PEB) is new type of building framing system adopted in the industrial building, the concepts is steel framing system, supporting members and roof covering are connected each other. Pre Engineering Building (PEB) systems being an alternative to conventional steel building in cost wise. Due to its less in dead weight, industrial building designed for lateral loads. To withstand the lateral load bracing are provided in the industrial structure. The aim of this research work is optimize the bracings for both conventional steel building structure (CSB) and Pre-Engineering Building (PEB), analyze the behavior of structure under different loads by using Etabs software. Cost comparison of steel used for CSB and PEB are also studied.
