Industrial Ceilings’ Reach New Heights

  • ​Throughout the years, the average ceiling height of industrial buildings constructed in the Greater Edmonton Area (GEA) has steadily risen.

  • While warehouses in the 70’s hovered the line of 20’ ceiling heights, buildings constructed now are more likely to exceed 25’, and have more frequently broken the 30’ threshold.

  • This comes from a tenant’s need to maximize the use of warehouse space as efficiently as possible; with higher ceilings, a tenant is able to get more cubic capacity for example. Additionally, as the availability of space becomes more constraining, we can expect developers to consider building vertically more frequently in order to increase the square footage of the space without impacting it’s physical footprint. ​​
