On today’s show we are looking at the design of industrial warehouse buildings. Building designs are changing from a functional perspective and this is important when you consider investment in industrial buildings.

When we hear about warehouses, people tend to talk in terms of square feet and rent per SF. But these facilities are not universally interchangeable. Operators think in terms of volume, not just area. 

So when you take design into account it is clear that not all warehouses are considered equal. Older buildings that do not meet the logistics demands of a modern facility will not even be considered. They are treated like a functionally obsolete building, even if they are only a few years old. It all comes down to the racking system that is used to plan the warehouse operations.
