We specialize in cost-effective industrial architecture services that enhance your building’s functionality, productivity and environmental sustainability.
Whether it’s a warehouse, factory or distribution center, our experienced industrial architects have the right solution to meet your design requirements.
Design Requirements of Industrial Architecture
We start with a needs analysis to identify the elements that are essential to the optimal functionality and productivity of your facility.
Our industrial architects develop a comprehensive design plan that includes corporate identity and environmental sustainability standards such as LEED.
Once we fully understand your vision, we conduct a feasibility study of your site to estimate construction costs and determine space availability.
Next, we work with you to address the special design requirements of an industrial architecture project which typically include:
If there are dangerous chemicals or other potential hazards, it is essential for the designers to have extensive experience in safe construction practices and code compliance.
Certain projects require expertise in designing industrial facilities that have conflicting spatial requirements. For instance, inventory storage is usually located in areas where there is movement of forklifts and loaders as well as pedestrian traffic.
Other Industrial Requirements
Ventilation, lighting, storage racks, catwalks and truck unloading zones are common features in industrial facilities that require experienced architects to design correctly.
We provide professional support and guidance at each step of the process to ensure that the project is proceeding in line with your vision and expectations.
Our industrial architecture experts will help you select the appropriate materials and the best design elements for your industrial project.

The Evolution of Industrial Architecture
Since the dawn of the industrial age, the typical factory was a dull, utilitarian facility with workers operating noisy machines and spending their shift surrounded by tools and equipment.
The design of these impersonal buildings was guided only by the manufacturing functions required for achievement of mass-production targets.
In contrast, modern industrial architects respond to how workers and factory owners view the ideal workplace by taking into account new design factors.
Nowadays, design teams need to take into account factors such as efficient utilization of space, building codes and environmental sustainability ratings such as TREES.
Modern designers place equal importance on the comfort and well-being of the personnel as on the long-term sustainability of the business.
People, once merely machine operators, are now an integral part of the organization, resulting in higher productivity and lower employee turnover.
Balancing Form and Function
Our design approach seeks the right balance between the quality of the work environment and the efficiency of the production process.
We believe it is essential to optimize functionality so that people can interact with their surroundings and with each other in a sustainably productive manner.
