Spatial Configuration of Factory Buildings

Samiksha Arora | Ar. Ishwar Chandra Vidya Sagar

Abstract: In factories, spatial configuration plays an important role in order to improve workers' comfort which will result in maximising the productivity and at last will contribute to economy generation. With the goal of identifying the major variables influencing shoe factories' spatial layout choices, this study explores the spatial arrangement and organization of shoe factories. By analyzing a cluster of shoe manufacturing plants located in Agra in India through site visit and international case studies in Bangladesh, this study examines how factors such as workflow process, machinery placement, storage areas and logistical considerations impact the spatial arrangement of factories. With the help of workers and factory officials interviews in shoe factories, site visits, and spatial analysis techniques this research provides insights into the actual indoor environment of the factories in terms of spatial arrangement. This actual indoor environment is further comparatively analysed by existing standards for industrial buildings which helped to find out the potential areas for improvement. The findings of this research work aim at identifying the potential areas and best practices for improvement in spatial configuration of shoe factories which will contribute to workers' comfort.
