Ganesha had explained the rules for purchasing land
in previous article. After selecting the site, in designing a lay-out for industry and providing for utilities special attention should be given to the following aspects:
A temple in the North East corner should be built and maintained neat and clean and should be kept empty. Toilets in the administrative building or in other parts of factory or mill should be made in South East or North West area and if septic tank is to be built for that purpose, it should be built in between North and North West or between East and South East.
The slanting of floors should be towards East, North and North-East, more open space should be left in the East and North side. Building's height can be equal in all sides, otherwise South and Western sides should not be taller in height as compared to East and North. Well, bore well, underground sink, pools, swimming pools etc. should be located in North-East or Eastern zone, preferably between Mid East and North East. Stair cases should always be provided in South West part of the building.
Over and above overhead water tank should be made in South West (strictly not in North-East), South or West. Its height should be more than that of buildings height in North East corner. Toilets may be placed in North West or South East. North East and South West corners should be strictly avoided for this purpose.
To avoid negative energy coming from North of North-West side- lawns with big avenue trees can be developed on South and West sides. Small lawns with fountains etc (without big trees) can be developed in North East, North and East also. Here only small plants can be grown. Managerial and other office blocks can be constructed in North, East, South or South West keeping the heights of these buildings lower than that of main factory. Staff quarters may be built in East without touching East wall, in North, West or South East for the purpose of harmony. Multi storied flats may be constructed in South zone without touching main factory building.
Weighing machines should be placed in North West or Central East. Placement of heavy vehicles like tractors, trucks, trolleys or cranes etc, should be on the roads outside or if it is to be inside, they should be parked in South West region. Cycles, scooter, cars, light commercial vehicles can be parked in North West, North or East side of buildings. North, East and North-East must be kept light and empty, says Ganesha. North East should always be free from any parking of vehicles. Heavy plants and machineries should be placed in West, South and South West zones leaving the North West and South East corners. North East and center of the building should be avoided for placing heavy machineries. Light and auxiliary machines, work equipments and tools can be placed in Eastern and Northern sides except in North East, North West and South East corners.
South-West corner is ruled by Fire Element. Generator, boilers, ovens, oil fired or electric furnaces, switch gears, capacitors, transformers, control panels, smoke chimney etc. all should be located in South East. Heavy raw materials stores may be placed in South West, South or West. North East should always be avoided. Maintenance workshop may be in South, South West avoiding North East and centre. Maintenance and consumable stores should be nearer to the workshop.
Following these Vaastu tips while building a factory will prove helpful in a successful business.
