We Specialize in Industrial Architecture Services
INFRA Group has a proven track record in providing award-winning industrial architecture services. Whether it’s a warehouse, manufacturing plant or distribution center, our team has the right solution to fulfill your functionality and productivity requirements.
Specialized Design Requirements
We start with a needs analysis to identify the elements that are essential to the functionality and productivity of your facility. Our industrial architecture experts develop a comprehensive design plan that takes into consideration corporate identity, building codes, safety regulations, construction costs and environmental design standards such as LEED.
Once we fully understand your vision, we conduct a feasibility study of your site in terms of budget and space availability. We work with you to address the specific design requirements of an industrial project.
- Safety: Typically, an industrial facility has heavy machinery, dangerous chemicals, and other hazards. Therefore, it is crucial to follow safe construction practices, local building codes and hazard regulations.
- Space Planning: Industrial facilities are unique in that there are conflicting spatial requirements to consider. Inventory storage is usually located in areas where there is movement of forklifts and loaders as well as pedestrian traffic.
- Other Industrial Requirements: Ventilation, lighting, storage racks, catwalks and truck unloading zones are common features in industrial buildings that require special expertise to design correctly.

Modern Industrial Architecture
CPRAM Borngern Factory
Since the dawn of the industrial age, the typical factory was a dull, utilitarian facility where drone-like workers would operate noisy machines and spend the work day surrounded by racks filled with materials, tools and equipment. The design of these impersonal buildings was guided only by the manufacturing functions required to carry out the mass-production process and achieve a specified output.
Keeping Up With Shifting Trends
In contrast, modern factory design is responding to shifts in the way workers and company management view the ideal workplace. In addition to production processes, design teams need to consider other (often conflicting) factors such as efficient utilization of space, building codes, and environmental design ratings such as TREES. Nowadays, equal importance is placed on the comfort and well-being of the personnel as on the long-term sustainability of the business.
Balancing Form and Function
Clearly, quality is replacing quantity as the focal point of workspace design. Human resources, once merely machine operators, are now an integral part of the organization, resulting in higher productivity and lower employee turnover.
At INFRA Group, our design approach seeks the right balance between the quality of the work environment and the efficiency of the production process. We believe it is essential to find the best way for people to interact with their surroundings and each other without compromising on the quality of the work they achieve.
