You Should Know Before Selecting a Warehouse
BREEAM for industrial buildings is an assessment method and a certification scheme that can be used at the design, construction, and refurbishment stages of a building’s lifecycle. The scheme can be used to assess one or a combination of the following types of industrial building: 1. Storage and distribution warehouses: (including cold food storage) 2. Light industrial/factory units e.g. manufacturing, assembly, packaging etc. and small 'starter' or 'nursery' units. 3. Workshops: e.g. manual workshops and vehicle workshops.
A warehouse, in general, is a place for storage of goods, or, in another aspect - the organization that carries out operations with commodities in the warehouse. It can either be a separate unit, or be a part of a company. Storing the goods, building orders, splitting shipments, if necessary - packaging, as well as selling the goods to wholesalers are being done at a warehouse. The classification of warehouses is very diverse. They are classified by different traits. By storing method: closed, open and half closed. In turn closed warehouses can be classified by the number of stores (multi-stores, surface and underground) and heat ability. Due to the tendency of saving space, construction of warehouses now tends to rise, warehouse location under the ground, the enlargement of aisles of the supporting structures (for storing large cargo). In the modern construction of warehouses structures out of light alloys are used. There are several other ways to categorize warehouses. For example, depending on the set of services (divided into classes from A to D), or by type of ownership (owned or leased), or by purpose (distribution, long-term storage, universal, specialized, commercial, industrial, etc.), or by storage mode (heated and not, cold storage, etc.). Nowadays big warehouses, providing the entire set of storage services that allow to minimize the expenses by rejecting owned warehouses, are becoming more popular. In such warehouses the following services are done: loading and unloading at special terminals, packaging and consolidation of the goods, separate storage of different types of products (bulk, liquid, requiring special storage conditions). Usually such warehouse complexes are equipped with modern facilities and access roads and railway lines.
The term ‘temporary storage’ usually refers to temporary storage of goods in warehouses at customs. The phrase ‘temporary storage warehouse (TSW)’ is often used. It means a specially equipped building intended for storage of goods. TSW is established by customs authorities, or entities.
