Industrial Landscaping & Drainage
Gone are the drab, lifeless, and impractical industrial parks of the past. These days visitors and tenants demand an inviting and beautifully designed setting to do business in. Industrial park landscaping and drainage ideals are on the rise with expectations for it to be not only practical and functional but also aesthetically pleasing. Expert landscaping and professional drainage design help to retain current tenants and entice new ones while also improving the safety, efficiency, and functionality of the industrial plaza.
Beautifully designed landscaping and drainage is an excellent way to wow visitors and tenants when they visit. It also serves to highlight the facility positively which can lead to the economic growth of the surrounding neighborhood. Visitors are more likely to return due to the alluring environment and tenants are more inclined to extend their leases.
Building underground irrigation channels and using plants that are drought tolerant with a combination of mulch can improve the water use efficiency of industrial facilities. Industrial plaza landscaping and drainage for water control can significantly reduce water consumption and therefore reduce cost and environmental impact.
Industrial trench drains have a number of uses, including running wires and pipes to equipment, capturing fluids in machines used to cool or lubricate, containing and treating chemicals used in an assortment of processes, catching water used to wash equipment and products, and collecting any spills from water to hazardous chemicals. In addition, many specialized processes have their own needs that result in custom drainage.
Waste cannot be simply dumped down the drain like they used to be. Industries are rigidly regulated these days with manufacturers interested in capturing and recycling fluids. In fact, some industries must have their own wastewater treatment facility. Trench drains in industrial facilities can see a wide array of damaging conditions. These include, but are not limited to, flammable materials, abrasive materials, large quantities of debris, harsh chemicals, and/or heavy loads. All these factors need to be considered when designing and implementing an industrial drainage system.
Ugly, unattractive, and boring industrial parks are a memory of a bygone era. Today, visitors expect wandering the sidewalks, flowered medians, and tree-lined streets. This increases the experience of the tenants and visitors alike, leaving a positive impression on their minds.
Properly designed landscaping and drainage can help to reduce the risk of damage, injury, or loss thus reducing liability. Skillful landscape maintenance can keep the industrial park free of branches and dead trees as well as keeping the walkways and streets clear of snow, ice, and debris. Expert drainage can reduce the impacts of flooding and erosion leading to long-lasting beauty while helping to make the grounds safe.
Not only do gardens, trees, and shrubs contribute to the overall beauty of an industrial park but they allow for better navigation. Landscaping can be used to highlight and enhance directional signs for entrances and buildings, especially in larger industrial facilities. This leads to better enjoyment and improves the safety of your visitors and tenants.
