  • Most important orientation of building should be such that it gets maximum light and ventilation.
  • Height of the shed should be more to maintain the temperature in the shed.
  • North light trusses (North light trusses are  used for short spans in industrial workshop-type buildings) should be provided to get maximum light.
  • The factory building should be provided with sun shading devices such as projecting roofs, trees, chajjas,  etc. help in achieving heat insulation requirements.
  • Factory building should have good ventilation provisions.
  • The position of furnace (heat producing element) should be located far away from other part of building.
  • The opening should be provided at higher level in the wall to remove heat from shed.
