Cape Town Warehouse. Brand new in Epping Industria. Construction will start shortly. Completion by mid-2024.
13,584 m of new warehouse space in total. The design includes a covered loading zone between 2 large warehouses. The property is zoned General Industrial 2.
Modern global warehouse trends – many of which will be included in this development:
- More efficient warehouses. Consolidation of warehouses into those that can serve markets in under one day with a wider variety of finished goods stock.
- High ceilings – 12 m+ to the eaves. Also, this facilitates better cubic metre usage of the warehouse.
- Fewer columns. As a result, this gives the user more warehouse flexibility over time.
- Also, solar or energy-efficient LEDs. Preferably, movement activated.
- Sprinklered. This would probably include storage tanks, as this is now part of the new fire regulations for the more substantial warehouse buildings in many areas.
- Hyperflat, hyper hard floors.
- Lots of docking doors. Either raised or on-grade.
- Circulation areas for interlink trucks.
- Fibre optic availability. All sizeable modern warehousing is operated through intricate software systems connected to other branches or customers.
- “Green” building materials.
- Better use of sustainability. Including, lower electricity usage. Also, lower water usage and re-use of on-site water.
There are several advantages to having a high warehouse, including:
- Increased Storage Capacity: A high warehouse allows for more storage capacity, as it enables the stacking of goods vertically. This means that businesses can store more inventory in the same amount of floor space, which can increase efficiency and reduce costs.
- Better Use of Space: A high warehouse allows businesses to better use the available space, especially in urban areas where land is limited and expensive. By building upwards rather than outwards, businesses can maximize their use of the available space.
- Increased Efficiency: A high warehouse can increase efficiency in material handling and storage operations. For example, it can reduce the time and effort required to move goods between storage locations, as workers can use automated systems such as conveyor belts and forklifts to transport goods vertically.
- Improved Safety: A high warehouse can improve safety in the workplace by reducing the need for workers to use ladders or other equipment to reach high shelves. This can help prevent accidents and injuries.
- Potential for Energy Savings: A high warehouse can potentially reduce energy costs, as it can take advantage of natural ventilation and lighting. Additionally, some high warehouses are designed to collect rainwater, which can be used for irrigation or other purposes.
- Flexibility: A high warehouse can be more flexible in terms of layout and design, as it can be adapted to meet changing business needs. For example, businesses can add or remove shelves, change the layout of storage areas, or reconfigure the warehouse to accommodate new equipment.
Overall, a high warehouse can provide several advantages to businesses, including increased storage capacity, better use of space, improved efficiency, increased safety, potential energy savings, and flexibility.
In conclusion, logistics is changing the face of industrial warehousing. So, this new development will include many of the above attributes of modern warehouses. Especially relevant, it’ll be high, and the cubic metre efficiencies the occupier will enjoy are significant and more cost-effective.
