I have some experience adapting a 19th Century Textile Mill for
museum storage, one of the books I found incredibly useful was,
'Museum Collections in Industrial Buildings, A Selection and
adaptation guide' Edited by May Cassar, 1996.

   "Combines strategic and practical advice on how to use industrial
    buildings for museum purposes in an accessible, safe and
    environmentally stable way. Designed as a planning tool for both
    museums and building consultants, this book contains vital
    information and advice."

I found it achieved the above and was also accessible to many levels.
The publication can be obtained from
