What you need to know about factory construction?

Only when a thorough production plan, plant layout, and equipment sequences have been decided can a factory building be planned so that it precisely meets the production demands of the plant. It is vital to consider all variables that may impact the operation of the building’s plant.

You can seek assistance from DTC if you are unsure where to begin.

Factors to Consider in Factory Building Planning

Important factors to consider while designing manufacturing buildings include:

Nature of Production Procedure

Plant structures are mostly determined by the kind of industrial process. The floor load, headroom, bay size, etc. are determined by the machinery and equipment to be used.

Plant Layout

The layout of equipment, service centers, and offices has a significant impact on the design and construction of plant facilities. In actuality, the labor pattern should be decided first, followed by the building’s architecture.

However, flexibility should be built in to accommodate future demands. While making the plant layout, DTC ensures that all parameters are being fulfilled at any cost.

Space Requirements

The size of plant facilities is determined by the space needs for material flow and storage, machine placement, service centers, and staff mobility. The ceiling height is dependent on the kind of equipment used.

Utilizing overhead conveyors and tall machinery may need elevated roofs. However, unique constructions and extra expenses may be necessary. If feasible, pits may be excavated to accommodate all equipment.

Material Handling

Material handling efficiency contributes to the reduction of manufacturing cycle time, prevents production bottlenecks, and saves material handling expenses. Cranes, conveyor belts, hoists, etc. are widely used to facilitate the simple handling of commodities.

A decrease in the number of columns and the preservation of an optimal ceiling height is crucial for the effective operation of material handling equipment. Clearly, the need for efficient material handling equipment influence the design of buildings.

Inversely, the qualities of the manufacturing structure influence the efficiency with which a company may use this equipment. Therefore, DTC pays significant attention to it.


The plant’s lighting and illumination system have a substantial impact on staff productivity and tiredness. Consequently, lighting standards should be considered during plant design.

Ventilation, Heating, and Air Conditioning

It is usual for big facilities to have separate structures to house high-pressure boilers. Their size will be determined by the amount of heat required for manufacture. Appropriate ventilation is required to supply sufficient fresh air.

Some industrial processes need extensive ventilation or temperature and humidity regulation. The use of air conditioning is prevalent in factories and other offices. Increasing energy prices have prompted new developments in heating, lighting, and air conditioning. DTC is utilizing new technologies to ensure the safe and efficient running of its operations.

Support Facilities

Plant construction considerations should also include cooling towers, emergency power, compressed air, sewage treatment, etc. Regulations regulating air and water pollution, etc., must not be infringed during waste disposal.


The manufacturing building should be constructed to facilitate the unrestricted movement of employees. Accessibility is 100% assured at DTC by our staff as well as higher management.

Future Expansion

When designing an industrial facility, it is important to account for growth requirements in the future. If multistory structures are to be enlarged with extra floors, it is necessary to plan ahead so that the existing structure has enough base to support the increased weight.

Safety measures

The need and significance of a fire prevention system should be considered while designing a manufacturing facility. In DTC, fire protection systems range from traditional fire extinguishers to automated fire detectors and fire protection equipment.

Environmental Defense

The need to safeguard the environment must be addressed while designing the layout of a facility. This is now being strongly supported on a global scale by DTC. This involves ensuring a greenbelt surrounds the factory, horticulture, and effluent disposal, water/ air treatment plant and waste disposal plans, etc.

Effluent disposal

Wherever chemical processes such as electroplating, tanneries, etc. are employed, effluent treatment of discharged water is now required. Therefore, an industrial facility must be designed with an effluent disposal system in mind.


If you have no prior expertise in the commercial or industrial building sectors, contemplating the construction of an industrial building might seem like an overwhelming endeavor at times. This is particularly true if you do not already work in the construction industry.

Before beginning work on this kind of building, industrial and commercial construction experts like DTC have given a clear insight into the matters.
