What Is an Industrial Space?

“Industrial space” is more commonly used to identify a building used for manufacturing, production, fabrication, assembling and conducting meetings. And, while industrial space can also include warehousing tasks, it doesn’t always have to be a warehouse property.

Industrial space is most commonly occupied by a lone business. As a result, an industrial space is typically where the business operates, so it often has a combination of both office space and manufacturing or warehousing space.
