Industrial Buildings

Your trusted team for industrial Architecture & design in Newcastle.

Commercial business units within an industrial estate are an affordable alternative to the onerous and expensive task of finding a site and completing a building to accommodate your business. Commercial units can be built in a variety of sizes to suit almost any business.

Typically located within industrial estates, these commercial business units are grouped as a cluster and therefore share the location with like-minded businesses, which could provide ancillary benefits to your business.

Mark Lawler Architects have worked on a range of industrial buildings in the past. We understand the development and council approval process, plus we can provide unique design recommendations to maximise the development potential within a distinctive and attractive setting.

Experienced industrial Architects in the Newcastle area

Industrial Architecture requires the consideration and integration of very specific design elements compared to most types of commercial buildings.

Consideration of the size and layout of the units, the type of vehicles and car parking are critical factors to allow flexibility and functionality to suit a variety of business types. The units can vary in area, vehicle access, facilities provided, and storage provision. Often, a mezzanine is provided to increase floor area or to provide an office space. Toilet and kitchenette provisions are also included within each unit.

The Architectural design is very important to establish an identity for each business unit as well as for the development as a whole. Interesting, well-considered form, colour, and detailing will help avoid an ugly “shed” appearance by providing an attractive presentation for the businesses. Landscaping, signage, lighting, security, display, and storage of products are other important factors to ensure the functional and successful operation of the development. The natural topography of the site should also be considered throughout the design process.

Vehicle and pedestrian movements need to be considered to provide easy, safe movement without impacting adjacent businesses. The size of vehicles to be accommodated, weather protection, security, and degree of public exposure are important considerations. 

Industrial buildings need to consider the processes and operations of the business as well as the future changes in technology and growth of your business, providing you with a timeless, functional design for decades. Our experience as Architects in a range of building types allows us to understand the unique requirements of every site.
