Frequently asked questions
What are the costs associated with a new warehouse build?
Warehouse construction varies greatly in cost due to many factors, but these are the most common items with the biggest swing in valuation; land acquisition, composition of warehouse space and office space and steel prices. Many other items account for the total cost but those three can make a big change in a businesses budget.
What is the typical timeline for the new construction of a warehouse?
Timelines are hard to pinpoint until a few particulars are established. Do you own the land, current land lease in place or just starting to look? Do you have a building in design or civil? Have you begun the conversation with a lender or plan to finance from within the organization? What are your needs for any specialized equipment, ventilation, loading areas, etc?
What are common types of warehouse layouts?
The most common type of layout is a combination of office and warehouse space. Some business models have few office staff so the office square footage is smaller than a business with large inside sales teams or customer service staff. Those decisions should be made based on current business model and future plans.
How large of a warehouse can I build?
This is dependent on several factors; financing, land sizing, current square footage needs, growth accommodations, trucking/delivery requirements, etc. All the more reason to start the conversation with an established contractor in your area before too long.
How do I plan the construction of a warehouse?
Call Kaufman Construction as early as possible when starting the conversation. There is a great deal of information we can provide, resources we can share and support we are known for that will help a business owner when starting the process. Financing, land acquisition, design, engineering, sub-contractors; we do it every day while a business owner most likely doesn’t.
What are the benefits of building a warehouse for my business?
Maximizing space in an efficient way can create a dynamic change to your operation. Designing a space that is made for your business, process flow and future growth specifically will create opportunity you couldn’t realize in a space not created for you. It’s the difference in making something work versus making it right.
