Industrial Building Design

Industrial buildings represent a significant portion of new construction in the United States and abroad. The architectural and engineering requirements for these facilities are unique and often times different than typical commercial buildings. This OnDemand Webinar will help you to become familiar with the unique nature of these buildings and the different methods used to procure these buildings. In addition, the presenter will discuss the increasing role and use of BIM technology in the design for these buildings.

Learning Objectives:

  • You will be able to discuss the layout and geometry driven by process requirements.
  • You will be able to describe unique characteristics of industrial buildings.
  • You will be able to identify technology changes and evolution of design practices and project delivery methods.
  • You will be able to review the use of BIM technology to coordinate building and process layouts for industrial facilities.
