Constructions of Factories
There are some basic guidelines in constructing the factories as per Vastu Shastra.
For establishing a factory there are some directions which are to be avoided while some are good to set up a factory as well.
To establish a factory, plot should be square or rectangular in shape or it can be at the most 1: 2 in ratio. The south-east corner and the south-west corner should be necessarily of 90°.
On the south and the north side, a tall thick wall of stone is necessary. At least in the south-west corner of the south-west side there should be a stone wall. In the west and the north direction there can be a barbed wire compound as well.
In the north-east corner of the plot i.e. in the north or the east wells, borings, underground water storages, fountains etc. should be located.
The transformer should be placed in a little distance away from the corner in the south-east direction. Watchman's room should be adjacent to it. The go-down of raw material should be placed in the south-west corner. The main office, laboratory, management unit etc. should be in the west direction. Workers quarters should be placed in the north-west corner as well.
If the plot is divided into four equal parts by drawing the east-west and the north-south axis, the main plant should be located in the south-west part.
The water storage should be placed to the north-east of the main plant. This side should not be too high. The main plant should be sloping down step by step from the south to the north. Heavy machinery should be towards the south. Comparatively lighter machinery should be present towards the north.
In the south-east corner of the plot, boiler, transformer and electrical equipment should be located. The raw material storage room, the storage room for waste material can be placed in the south-west corner.
The finished Goods of the factory should be kept in the north-west corner. The delivery of these goods should also be made from the north-west corner of the north side. The overhead tank of the plant should be in the north-west or the west direction. Parking should be in the east or the north. The main entrance should be in the east, the north, the north-west, the south-east of the south. But it can never be placed in the south, south-east of the east or the south-west direction. There is no harm if it is present in the west.
