Historic East Side Milwaukee Industrial Building To Become Apartments
1According to the Government , “private industrial buildings usually refer to private flatted factories, private industrial/office and godown buildings. Specialised factories such as those located in industrial estates, storage premises in container terminals and flatted factories built by the Housing Authority are not included”. What is more important, regarding the role of government in revitalisation, Hong Kong following laissez-faire principles can be viewed as at one end of the spectrum, opposite to centrally planned economy. A case study of Hong Kong could provide evidence to better understand the problem and provide implications to revitalisation of industrial space in other areas that either adopting free-market economy or in-between the two ends. What are the intended and unintended consequences of the 2010 new package of revitalisation measures?
On 5 March 2021, we published a Q&Aon the Development Bureau’s announcement for a two-year pilot scheme to charge land premiums at standard rates for lease modifications involving industrial building redevelopment. It is an industrial building which makes a direct approach to people in a completely new way and which returns to the city. Although the power plant is located on the outskirts of Copenhagen, it is by no means isolated. This proximity to people has become bearable with the aid of the latest combustion and filter technology through which the air around the power plant is actually better than that in the center of the city.
In the decade of 2000s, cross-border development and regional integration of Hong Kong and the PRD region experienced ups and downs. Hong Kong underwent economic recession and outbreak of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome in the year of 2003 and in the same year China entered WTO. The PRD region was no longer relied so heavily on Hong Kong and was on her way towards more self-contained development (R.C.K. Chan, 2011). In addition, the institutional environment in the PRD began to change with Guangdong provincial government and the Central Government emphasising more on environmental concern and labour right protection (Liao & Chan, 2011). With the loss of competitive advantage in terms of costs of production, there was a new wave of industrial upgrade in the PRD region.
Modern construction is characterized by a tendency to minimize the weight of structural members in order to reduce consumption of materials and the cost of construction and installation. In line with this, the reinforced-concrete structural members used in industrial buildings are being improved through the use of high-strength concrete and concrete with light-weight aggregates. Metal structures are being improved through the use of high-strength steel and aluminum alloys and thin-walled rolled and bent sections. Improvement of metal structures is also related to the introduction of prestressed metal structures and the construction of light-weight industrial-building systems that make use of thin sheet-covered surfaces. The columns, trusses, and girders used in the steel skeletons of one-story industrial buildings are made of rolled sections (channel beams, I-beams, and angle brackets) or sheet steel and open thin-walled and tubular bent sections. The roofs of metal-frame industrial buildings generally take the form of light decking made of sectional sheet steel or asbestos panels along steel girders.
This all-steel industrial building combines the advantages of a removable modular construction and a traditional building. The RHINO team is ready to assist you with steel structures for industry, as well as any other types of buildings. Also, see ourMetal Building Optionspage for other options available for industrial buildings, including skylights and overhead doors. Prefab steel framing components provide a much faster building construction cycle. Blake is well established and highly regarded in the Austin industrial real estate industry.
A flex building encompasses a wide variety of business functions related to the manufacturing process under one roof. For example, you may find an office space paired with a small warehouse, research and development center, or even a showroom. Flex buildings often feature more office space compared to a typical warehouse and include lower ceilings ranging from 14 to 24 feet.
