Industrial - Planning And Building Codes
The word industrial is often referred to in the construction business as tools that are practically indestructible or buildings that are zoned specifically for the manufacturing industry. What you're looking at in the picture below is a stairway that was installed in a industrial building.
If you have a tool that's practically indestructible and you've been
using it for years, I would consider it to be an industrial tool. These
are durable and reliable tools that are often used daily by
professionals in the building business. These are tools that are
expected to operate, without breaking. When a carpenter goes to turn on
their circular saw, they expected to turn on and start cutting.
I purchased plenty of tools that don't cut the mustard and end up in the tool junkyard, resting forever amongst the garbage, they belong with.
Planning departments usually provide specific locations for industrial
buildings. You probably wouldn't be happy, living next to a factory that
runs 24 hours a day I actually lived behind a company who built wood
pallets, between the hours of six o'clock in the morning and five
o'clock in the afternoon.
It didn't bother me much, because I was usually off to work, during those hours. Whenever I came home early or had a day off, it was hard to concentrate on anything, while I was sitting in my backyard.
Industrial buildings are zoned for industrial areas, commercial buildings are placed in commercial areas and most homes are provided with a relatively quiet community, because they fall into the category of residential zoning.
