When it comes to developments with a number of levels, you may have choices of ground floor, mid floor as well as top floor units.
While each type of unit may differ slightly in terms of specifications, there may be advantages if you are going for the top floor industrial units.
In terms of ceiling height, top floor units may have higher ceiling heights than units on other floors. This may be true as it is the top most floor and the roof is just above but this would also depend on the building specifications and design of the building.
Higher ceiling may be a good thing for companies or businesses with cranes, taller machines or taller equipment. You can also make use of the high ceiling within the unit by having racking systems which can enable you to have more space for storage purposes.
In some buildings, floor loading for top floor units may be higher than mid floor units or the floor loading may be equivalent to that of the ground floor units but this would still depend on the specifications and design of the industrial building.
When it comes to natural lighting, top floor units may be brighter as there may be more natural lighting. This can be true as the top level units tend to be more exposed as compared to lower levels.
Likewise, in terms of ventilation, top floor units tend to have better ventilation. This may be why food factory users with food products that have stronger aromas tend to go for top floor industrial spaces as top floor units tend to have better ventilation.
Whether a top floor warehouse or factory unit would be suitable for your business, it would depend on your nature of business and operational requirements as different companies tend to operate differently in some ways.
