Factories are some of the most complex and structurally sophisticated workplaces in the world, requiring special consideration and expertise from the earliest stages of planning. BUILD IT can help you navigate every step of the process. Our team offers a full-service approach, designing and constructing factory environments that are equipped to handle large-scale production, machinery, and teams — without ever compromising on safety, quality, or environmental standards.
Making the most of your factory space.
Space planning is a hugely important aspect of your factory design – and it all depends on the flow, equipment, and people that make up your operation. Factories layouts are often organized into a connected series of “manufacturing cells’ ‘comprising the different workstations and machinery that make up your production line. In most cases, these cells are closely interconnected – requiring specialized treatments (ex. heat and/or fume extraction, etc.) before moving downstream to the next station. Attention to detail is critical here; you must plan the exact locations and processes going into place before factory construction begins – and our BUILD IT team of engineers and planners will make sure you get it right from the very start.
Planning for permits.
Depending on the scale and nature of your production operation, you’ll likely require different permits that could take anywhere from a few days to a year to obtain. It’s best to iron out all these crucial details before setting a start date for construction, and don’t forget to factor these costs into your budget. Our team of project consultants at BUILD IT can help you navigate the permit process from start to finish, preparing and submitting all the necessary plans so you can begin factory construction and open up production as soon (and as safely) as possible.
Modular building techniques for factory construction.
Given the massive scale of most factory construction projects, our BUILD IT team often encourages clients to explore modular and “pre-fab” design approaches. This allows us to build large components in an off-site, controlled environment while foundational work begins at your selected factory site. Modular design allows us to expedite the construction process and often find meaningful cost-savings along the way, while still providing the kind of uncompromising quality and customization that your project demands.
Making your factory energy efficient.
There are a growing number of technological innovations that can help your factory construction project become more sustainable. From energy-efficient lighting fixtures to solar panels on the roof and naturally cooling ventilation systems, BUILD IT can help explore environmentally friendly fixtures that reduce your carbon footprint as well as your energy bill. It’s a win-win for everyone involved.
Transforming factories through new technology.
Modern tech innovations are sparking a new wave of industrial revolution, evolving nearly every aspect of the way our factories operate. From big data integration to robotically controlled equipment and digitally monitored sensors throughout the building, BUILD IT can help you explore and implement the newest and smartest advancements in factory technology to help streamline your operation.
