Crane-Served Warehouse for Lease Or Rent - Salt Lake City, UT Metro Area

Salt Lake City and the Wasatch Front are bustling industrial areas with a hard-working population and skilled and well-trained people to do a good job. That's why crane properties thrive, serving both manufacturing and logistics. Crane warehouses are much more valuable than regular industrial properties. Still, in some cases, the returns are worth the investment, whether you rent or buy.


Uses of a Crane-Equipped Warehouse for Lease Or Rent in Salt Lake City

This section will not be a comprehensive summary of use cases for a crane equipped warehouse property. Cranes in a warehouse are most commonly associated with placement of and/or adding value to or repair of heavy equipment and parts.


Types of Cranes - Overview

At the most basic level, a crane is used to lift, move, and place a heavy item. The type of crane you need for your use-case is driven by the size and weight of the objects you need to move and the area within which you need to move them. The following is a quick summary of some of your options. If you need small-area coverage with moderate-weight items that can be lifted and placed within a radial area, then you might get by with a Jib crane. The Jib crane is attached to a wall support at a single point and the arm attached to the support lifts and places the item.  A Gantry crane is a small version of a bridge-type crane that can be fixed or portable. It usually has a beam between two supports stabilized at the floor. The height of this type of crane can be fixed or variable. The beam at the top holds a hoist mechanism that lifts and can move between the two supports. This crane can also move around manually, giving you a broader range of motion. This crane type is also intended for lighter loads and can provide a broader range of movement than the radial movement of a Jib crane. The last type we'll discuss here is the overhead bridge crane. This crane type is highly versatile and able to lift larger loads. The crane generally consists of 2 parallel structural rail systems between which the bridge crane is suspended. The bridge holds at least one hoist that can traverse the bridge between the rails, and then the bridge can move through the building the length of the rails. This type of crane - which has many sub-types - is the most common and versatile. It is also quite expensive - but if you need a crane, you need a crane!


The Characteristics of a Crane Equipped Warehouse for Lease Or Rent in Salt Lake City

To utilize a heavy crane system in a Crane-Equipped Warehouse for lease or rent in Salt Lake City, the building needs to have certain characteristics. For a large bridge crane installation, you generally wish to maximize the volume through which the installed hoist can traverse to position the heavy parts and equipment where you need them. You need to be able to get these parts and equipment into and out of your building and within reach of the hoist.


Clear-Height/Hook Height

You need the useful height of the inside of your building - or clear height - high enough to handle the size of the bridge throughout the movement of the bridge along the support rails, achieving your desired Hook Height. Go to this article for a more detailed discussion of clear height.


Wide Span

The distance between roof supports in your Crane-Served Warehouse for Lease Or Rent in Salt Lake City that obstruct movement within your building - or span - needs to be wide enough to allow for the support rails to be built such that movement of the bridge is not obstructed.


Support Structures

Your Crane-Equipped Warehouse for Lease Or Rent in Salt Lake City needs to be built to handle the weight of processing equipment, the equipment being processed, crane support structures, bridges, hoists, trucks moving everything in and out of the warehouse, etc. The rail support structure can be integrated into one or more of the walls with proper reinforcement, or they can be built within the building from the floor.


Heavy Power

Generally, a crane-equipped or crane-ready warehouse for lease or rent in Salt Lake City will require more power than the average facility simply to power the crane. In addition to this, the manufacturing processes such a crane would support would also tend to require  more power. As such, this type of facility would generally be equipped with "Heavy Power." For more information on this topic, please go to our article on "Heavy Power," sometimes also called "Large Power."


"-Equipped" vs. "-Ready"

Saying that a facility is equipped with a crane means, of course, that there is one or more crane installation(s) already there. Since the purchase and installation of a crane can be quite expensive and time consuming, having what you need already there can be a big advantage. That said, such a crane installation might be bigger or smaller than you need - a fact that brings with it issues on either side. A larger crane can cost more to operate and maintain than necessary. Upgrading from a smaller crane to a larger crane can be expensive, if not impractical. On the other hand, a statement that a facility is "crane-ready" should also be viewed with skepticism, as it can mean many things to many people. It's safe to say that it should be significantly less expensive to install a crane in a "crane-ready" facility, whereas it may or may not be practical in a building that is not "crane-ready." Just make sure to quantify exactly what "crane-ready" warehouse for lease or rent in Salt Lake City means relative to each lease or rent option your broker discovers for you.

Given recent economic events involving COVID, Shipping, Supply Chain Issues, and Inflation, the issue of acquiring a property with an appropriate crane, or a given set of cranes already in place takes on even more relevance. We've observed in particular that the price and lead time of hoists have escalated rapidly during this time. This won't always be the case, but in times of tight supply, it certainly should be something you are concerned about.


Large Overhead or Sliding Doors/Grade Level Access

You generally need to comprehend the size of the parts and equipment you need to move into and out of your Crane-Served Warehouse for Lease Or Rent in Salt Lake City, including any transport equipment (trucks, forklifts, etc.) you intend to use for that movement. Businesses often allow space for a truck to drive into the movement volume of the crane to get the parts and equipment into and out of the building as needed. Some scenarios can require very large door openings, and this must be planned for in advance.


Divisibility - Crane-Equipped Warehouse for Lease Or Rent in Salt Lake City

Divisibility of Crane-Equipped Warehouses for Lease Or Rent in Salt Lake City is an interesting topic. For starters, divisibility is defined as the amount and configurations a landlord is willing (or able) to carve out from a larger building to lease to a tenant. This is possibly less interesting to you if you are planning to purchase a warehouse, although if you are buying it to sub-divide and lease out portions of the warehouse after purchase, then it will be relevant. While certainly possible bridge crane-served buildings, there are limits that are worth discussing. In a building with one or more bridge cranes, the minimum divisibility would generally be considered the space enclosing the movement area of one crane. Even that COULD be reduced some, but that starts to become pretty costly for the landlord as the leftover space would not be crane-equipped, or if a crane was needed, another crane would have to be installed. Let's just say that divisibility is fairly constrained - more-so than in some building types. You can see more discussion on this topic in our article on warehouse divisibility.
