    Published by Steve Watts, November 8, 2019
    Article Synopsis

    A dock well is commonly used to provide dock-high loading for a grade-level warehouse. This photo illustrates one of the major advantages for dock wells - the ability to have both dock-high loading/unloading and grade level entry to the building. To use 4’ high containers most effectively, you need to somehow bring the building to the height of the loading platform. One way is to raise the building. Another is to excavate for a below grade level dock well for use as the truck driveway. If you asked designers, they’d probably tell you some combination of the two is most common - i.e., raising the building a bit and lowering the truck well a bit - but less than 4’ -  below grade.

    Article Synopsis

    Did you know that your relationship with your real estate broker is fairly similar to your relationship with your attorney. To be sure, there are significant differences - but there are also significant similarities. Of course, we all hope not to have (too) much of a relationship with an attorney - at least when it comes around to legal “troubles.” To judge by current trends in the technology industry, many of us feel the same way about real estate brokers. Is it better to be “cagey” about committing to a real estate broker, or is it better to take the plunge and commit to one?…

    Synopsis Published by Steve Watts, December 17, 2016
    Link Synopsis

    The NAIOP (National Association of Industrial and Office Parks), also known as the Commercial Real Estate Development Association, is an organization for developers, owners and related professionals in office, industrial and mixed-use real estate. This is a link to the Terms & Definitions page for their research foundation. You can navigate these on their web site, but they also provide a link to a .pdf to the right of the “Terms & Definitions” label that I found quite useful.
