Construction is not something that can be looked at as just building. In fact, there are a number of categories that construction can fall into based on the type of building. This difference is determined by factors mainly involved in the use and the purpose of the build. The three main categories of construction are residential construction, commercial construction, and industrial construction. Although commercial and industrial construction can be considered a similar type of construction the difference can be made based on the scale and type of operations conducted within the building.

What is Industrial Construction?
Buildings are classed under the Building Codes of Australia (BCA) by the purpose of which they are designed, constructed or adapted to be used. Industrial construction is the construction of buildings used for manufacturing and storage purposes. These include buildings such as factories, warehouses, and processing plants. It is important that detail is paid during the construction process to ensure that the final building is suitable for the intended operations that will occur within it. As a result, the construction process requires careful and close attention to its foundations and structural integrity and a high level of understanding as to how the business will operate.
What needs to be considered in Industrial Design and Construction?
The size and scope of industrial construction require a level of expertise to ensure the viability and successful completion of the project. Therefore, the ability of a company to design and construct the building to ensure the functionality and structural integrity throughout the process, whilst upholding a high level of quality assurance, safety, and environmental policy is essential.
What’s involved in the process of construction?
Traditionally the design and construction team have been separated. Now, you can engage both resources through one industrial construction company for the complete design to build process. This has many advantages including improving the viability of your project due to lower costs, time efficiencies as the scheduled time is reduced and resource access as you can engage all required consultants under one roof and reduces the chance of error.
What do I need to know about Regulation and Codes?
It is imperative that you build within the legislation of your area and obtain all necessary permission before you do so. An understanding of regulation and codes is essential. Therefore working alongside a team with the experience and understanding of the industry is the best way for you to avoid any complications and time inefficiencies during the process of construction.
