I recall the metal building industry wanted to get away from the Quonset hut reputation and since they wound up having to hire engineers to make their product acceptable, they tarted themselves up by calling their product “Pre-engineered”.
Also, prefabricated is more of a manufacturing term.
Terms are sometimes regional. My use:
Pre-engineered is like a large metal building assembled on site.
Pre-manufactured is like homes built on another site and moved in assembled.

Please if the list can tell me the difference between pre-engineered and pre-fabricated buildings. Or are they one and the same thing?
