Economical Industrial Buildings What is economy?-- Right first cost, low after costs. Fire protection, low insurance, and quick completion, are also economies. Reinforced Concrete Buildings are not always lowest in first cost; they generally are in ultimate cost. They are fireproof and secure lowest insurance rates. Rigid-less wear on machinery. Little or no repairs-very important. Vermin-proof and easily cleaned. Quickly constructed-minimum delay of business.
