A factory is an industrial site, usually consisting of buildings and machinery, or more commonly a complex having several buildings, where workers manufacture goods mostly in bulk or operate large machines processing one product into another.
Factories are normally large buildings with a lot of empty space to work with as well as your different sections with different machinery for the different stages of production
When building a factory there are a few points to keep in mind. Factory layouts and designs require detailed coordination between the manufacturing process, production line and building facility.
The floor load, headspace, bay size and more all depend on the type of machines and equipment to be used.
