Design trends in warehousing spaces

Modern technologies such as automation, robotics and supply chain management are increasing management efficiencies in warehousing.

“Drones and self-driving vehicles are used to support seamless operations,” adds Rajesh Jaggi, Managing Partner, Real Estate, Everstone Group. “Robots are used to manage and sort, leading to greater output.” Warehouses by Indospace with super-flat floors are structured such that their vast spaces are unhindered by walls or columns and allow for high stacking of goods and easy manoeuvring of forklifts for storage or pick and pack.

“Clients generally ask for a 12-m clear height for the warehouses at the eaves (below services),” shares Anshul Singhal, CEO, Embassy Industrial Parks. “With more automation, FM2 flooring requirements have increased. And sustainability in lighting has always been important because the percentage of energy attributed to it is quite high.”

Also, sustainability principles and flexibility of form or layout are increasingly being incorporated right from the master planning stage, says Sanjay Srivastava, Business Head, Mahindra World City, Jaipur & Director, ORIGINS, Ahmedabad. “The use of technology for planning and managing industrial park operations more efficiently— for example, smart lighting, security and utilities monitoring—is widespread today. MWCs incorporate smart solutions including LED street lighting; energy-efficient buildings; solar PV rooftops; STPs; rainwater harvesting; low-flow fixtures and fittings; e-rickshaws, waste management systems; xeriscaping; and an off-grid solar power plant, among others.
