Got an Industrial Requirement – How can we help?
Are you looking for Industrial property or warehouse space? Are you unsure on what you need?
At Barker Storey Matthews now part of Eddisons we have undoubted experience in dealing a wide variety of commercial property and may be able to assist you at the start of your search by identifying a number of points you need to consider before setting out to view potentially suitable properties. Not only will this help in identifying the right space for you but will reduce the search time you may have to spend in relocation. So, ignoring the actual size of the space – as we assume you pretty much know this – a few pointers to get you started:
(a) Height – what is the minimum working height you need – think about the fact that some industrial units will have a flat roof. Also think about steel frame construction so height to the underside of the frame. Height is more appropriate when considering warehouse units.
(b) How many loading doors do you need – again perhaps more critical for warehouse property – and height of the doors – do you need articulated lorries to back in?
(c) What sort of/number of lorry movements do you have and the size of lorries that you use or are to visit?
(d) What office space do you need? / How many office staff are employed?
(e) How many car parking spaces are required? – something more critical when looking at office property!
(f) Do you have a specific power requirement? If it is excessive you need to think about power availability in the area.
(g) Do you need a dedicated yard area – this often reduces the number of suitable properties as detached units are in shorter supply.
Help us to help you. Identify your requirements in detail from the outset and your relocation should be easier to implement.
