All factory buildings constructed in Sri Lanka should conform to the Factories Ordinance. This let does not in anyway replace the Ordinance. Basically it aims at highlighting the areas to which special attention should be given by the Engineer/Architect in the design of the factory. It also draws the attention of the designer to certain areas which as our past experience shows, have been often overlooked or have not received adequate attention, either due to lack of knowledge of requirements or inadequate briefing by those engaging the designers. Subsequent modification to the building, cost, time and money may also cause much inconvenience to the investor as well as the constructing agency.

In certain areas where guidance from the ordinance is inadequate, or norms stipulated appear to be outdated, suggested norms have been indicated in this booklet. For example, under "lighting" (section B (2.4) Page 7 intensities of illumination for certain categories of operations have been laid down.

Requirements indicated in the booklet are "minimum requirements". It is desirable to have higher provisions in all important areas. Such provisions, apart from giving the factory a higher standard, would also help the investor during enhanced production periods when extra hands may have to be recruited.

Inquiries or clarification regarding any matter dealt with in this booklet may be directed to the Director (Eng Approval) Tel. 346627
