Industrial And Manufacturing
To service an industry at the highest level, it's critical to truly understand that industry. Daily operations and procedures that need to be integrated into the overall construction plan from initial staging and mutually coordinated scheduling with timeline, all the way through project completion and customer sign-off.
Industrial properties encompass a wide variety of property uses such as manufacturing, processing, storing, transporting, warehouse/warehouse office and research and development. Office/warehouse properties are typically flexible, general-purpose buildings that can be adapted to a small-user's needs. Each of these sub-classifications with their own unique needs and operating principals specific to their industry.
Manufacturing properties include the heavy industrial segment. Auto making, textiles, steel, chemicals, and food processing are typical uses of such properties. Typically zero to five percent of the property is used for office space.
Production lines that assemble components produced elsewhere are based in light industrial/assembly facilities. Some light manufacturing requiring limited raw materials and physical changes to the materials also might be conducted in such facilities. Space devoted to offices usually is less than 10 percent.
Broadly defined to include wide variations in markets across the country. Research and development office/warehouse properties can have lab facilities, offices, warehouse facilities, or personal services such as machine or auto repair and delivery services. Typically, each property allows a variable combination of office and other uses. The percentage of office space ranges from 20 percent to 100 percent, depending on the market and individual needs of the user. Research and development office facilities are generally used in high-technology markets. In other markets you will find office/warehouses of smaller size, with multiple tenants.
Generally the least intense industrial use, warehouse and distribution facilities often are located in lower-traffic, suburban fringes. Typically, similar to light industrial/assembly property, office use is limited to management tasks for the distribution or warehouse facility, or about 15 percent of total space.
