Planning for Future Uses

  • Kenneth B. Ackerman


Whenever construction of a new building is planned, you must face the probability that the building will become inadequate before the structure is actually worn out. The building could become obsolescent for several reasons: First, the volume and storage pattern needed when it was planned has changed. Second, the design of the building may become outdated by the introduction of new warehousing technology, or by a change in the product line to be stored. Third, the function and design may still be good, but the location no longer effective for the use originally planned. In some cases, faulty construction or poor soil conditions may cause the building to be simply worn out. Finally, substantial expansion or contraction of warehousing volume may cause the structure to be either much too large for current purposes, or too small with no practical means of expansion.
