Byron Pinckert, founding partner and director at HPA, Inc., has drawn on decades of industry experience to explain best-practice methods for planning and designing distribution and warehouse facilities in a new e-book published by NAIOP, "Rules of Thumb for Distribution/Warehouse Facilities Design." The new book includes discussions of site planning for truck and rail delivery, material handling equipment and racking systems layouts, as well as field-tested approaches to complex features such as floor slabs and roofs. In this webinar, Pinckert will focus on the definitions, constructional systems and functionality associated with the concept of clear height in today’s industrial real estate market.

Featured Speaker:


  • Byron knew what profession he wanted in the first grade when he saw a family friend, who was an architect, drive up in a new silver 1957 XKE Jaguar. Byron kept his focus and obtained an architectural degree at USC and then a Masters from the Harvard GSD.
  • He opened his own firm with partner Dennis Hill in 1980 and it made it through several real estate cycles. In the process, HPA has become the most successful industrial architectural firm in the country in terms of square footage designed.
  • Byron Pinckert is a director at the architectural firm HPA which has been responsible for 30 million square feet of industrial buildings per year for the last three years.
