The cost of an industrial building is not merely the sum of money paid to the architect and the builder for their services in designing and erecting the structure, but is actually this initial cost plus certain fixed annual charges which vary with the character of the building constructed. Ultimate cost is of extreme, though often lightly regarded, importance in determining the type of construction to be selected for a proposed factory or warehouse.
