Warehouse Design – Construction

With warehouse construction there are several considerations including

  • the height of the warehouse
  • the plot size of the warehouse
  • service requirements
  • Structural complexity.

Fire fighting systems are vital, but will have cost implications for the project

Before construction starts you will need to have the site carefully assessed to see how level it is in comparison to nearby roads. Should the site require levelling off this can be another costly and time consuming consideration.

Involve Construction Teams In Warehouse Design

It can be a good idea to involve your construction team early on in the warehouse design process as their experience can be highly valuable in highlighting issues as well as finding workable solutions.

Ideally the warehouse construction process shouldn’t exceed 10 months for a medium size project. Independent of this, the developer must also budget extra time to have the scope of work defined, shortlist appropriate contractors, receive and assess quotes, award the contract, prepare the detail warehouse design and finally obtain the correct building permissions.
