Industrial Architecture

Architecture and functionality in harmony. We design your office, logistics and production buildings.

Architecture and planning for logistics and factories

Industrial architecture is the architecture of buildings in which logistics, industrial production or manufacturing takes place. The focus is on the demanding design, shaping and construction of buildings.

In the case of industrial buildings, it goes without saying that in addition to economy, function is always in the foreground. However, this in no way excludes the possibility that the building will meet a high design standard both for the observer from outside and for the people who work in the building. A well designed building represents a moment of employee motivation and satisfaction that should not be underestimated. The urban development aspect should also not be underestimated. A building is the analogy of a company’s business card.

Function and aesthetics are complemented by a sustainable selection of materials and particularly high energy efficiency.

For the architects at IWL AG these are a standard feature when planning factories, logistics centers, workshops or office buildings.

We offer this as an individual service or as a complete contact in the form of general planning.

Building planning – optimal design of existing buildings or greenfield sites

‘Form follows function‘ (Louis Henry Sullivan, 1896)

For the architects at IWL AG this is often reflected in the construction of industrial buildings such as logistics centers, workshops, offices or similar. In addition to the aesthetic aspects of architecture, the aim is above all to plan and realize economically, perfectly functioning industrial buildings in which the employees feel comfortable and work with maximum productivity.

Our architecture supports your processes in an optimal way and meets ecological aspects to the highest degree. Sustainable conception is always to be seen in combination with technical building planning. With this we combine our high demands on design, which always follows function.

We supervise the execution up to the handover to the user. Our professional coordination services and project management ensure function, costs and deadlines.

Our special planning services:

  • Needs assessment based on your processes and requirements
  • Conception according to ecological, functional and urban development aspects integrated into your site development plan
  • Preparation of the planning documents in all phases including the building applications
  • Authority Management
  • Monitoring the implementation

Factory planning on the greenfield and brownfield

Whether a project is planned in an existing building, the so-called “brownfield approach”, or as an ideal concept on a greenfield site, the “greenfield approach”, will usually produce completely different results. However, the consideration of greenfield vs. brownfield can be useful from the point of view of economic efficiency. We at IWL always follow the maxim “planning from the inside out”, both concepts must meet this demand. A common method to find good solutions in the inventory, e.g. in a factory structure planning or master plan, is a prior greenfield assessment. Das hier entstandene Ideal concept is now being adapted taking into account the restrictions of the existing buildings. In this way a good and economical solution is also achieved in the brownfield.

In addition, brownfield planning must take into account changes in regulations between the past and present. The specialists at IWL AG always work on your project according to the latest state of science and technology. It goes without saying that we take regulations and adaptations such as fire protection requirements, occupational safety and zone concepts into account in every planning.

Zone concepts for hygiene operations

Zone concepts for companies with special hygiene requirements always serve the premises of “personal and product protection”. This applies in particular to the pharmaceutical industry, the chemical industry or in clean rooms. Personal protection here means protecting employees from the effects of toxic or biological substances. Contamination should be avoided when protecting the product.

Quarantine zones at the respective handling points are unavoidable for internal and external goods traffic. Zone concepts form the interfaces between controlled and freely accessible functional units. The experts at IWL AG can incorporate the individual requirements of your industry and your products into the building and layout planning through their many years of experience and industry knowledge. In this way, you receive your individual concept, achieve all necessary regulations and spend only as much financial resources on these topics as you need to. Within the scope of our planning and process analyses, the observance of national and international standards is part of our range of services.
