What is the difference between light and heavy industrial industry construction?
Heavy industrial buildings are designed for heavy-duty industrial operations that involve large machinery and equipment, like manufacturing plants, steel mills, and power plants. These buildings are typically constructed with steel and concrete, which can withstand the heavy loads and stresses associated with heavy industrial operations. They also tend to have high ceilings and large spans to accommodate large machinery and materials.
Light industrial buildings are typically much smaller in scale and much simpler in design and construction than their heavy industrial industry counterparts. Buildings of this type often include spaces used for assembly, disassembly, fabricating, finishing, manufacturing, packaging, maintenance shops, metalwork, millwork, cabinetry work, and warehousing. Unlike heavy industrial, these light industrial projects are typically not over two stories tall.
How long does industrial construction take?
Evolving industrial technologies and requirements, post-pandemic materials and supply shortages, client budget, and other variables, will dictate project timelines and whether some industrial facility projects will take longer than others. However, the typical timeline to construct an industrial facility is between ten and eighteen months and will vary based on complexity and location. For a detailed delivery and cost estimate, please contact Wier’s friendly team of professionals and request a bid.
What is considered industrial construction?
“Industrial” refers to a business that manufactures goods or turns raw materials into products; thus, industrial industry construction is very specialized. There are various aspects to consider with these projects, including meeting occupancy and voltage operation requirements to planning for parking lots that can accommodate semi-trailers. An industrial industry project will also often house extensive machinery and may need pressurized air, heavy ductwork, high-capacity ventilation, storage tanks, and other highly specific construction attributes.
What is an example of an industrial building?
An example of an industrial building is a manufacturing plant or factory. These buildings are designed for the production of goods and often contain specialized equipment and machinery to facilitate the manufacturing process. Industrial buildings can also include warehouses, distribution centers, power plants, and other facilities used to produce or store goods. Depending on their operations, they may be located in industrial zones and are often designed to be functional and efficient rather than aesthetically pleasing.
What is the difference between commercial and industrial construction?
Commercial construction is focused on building for commercial purposes, like office buildings, retail stores, restaurants, hotels, healthcare, and other consumer-focused structures. These projects often include creating a functional, inviting, and comfortable space for both customers and employees. Commercial buildings are constructed using such materials as steel, concrete, and glass, and they often have aesthetically appealing features, like large windows, attractive facades, and modern design finishes.
By contrast, industrial construction focuses on building factories, power plants, distribution centers, and other similar type facilities. Industrial industry construction emphasizes functionality and efficiency rather than design aesthetics. Because industrial buildings house specialized equipment and machinery, they are constructed with materials that can withstand the heavy wear and tear of industrial operations.
