Type of property


“Industrial space” and “industrial property” are quite general terms which cover a number of different types of commercial property with different uses.

In general, a warehouse should be used for distribution or storage however you may also come across a property labelled ‘distribution facility’. A distribution facility is a specific type of warehouse that specialises in distributing products rather than creating or packaging them.

A manufacturing facility should be used for creating or converting products and a flex-facility is a mixed-use type of space used for multiple businesses or a single business with a variety of uses.

Showrooms and service centres may also fall under the industrial property category, especially if you are using a commercial property website search to find your property.
