Recommendations for WiFi network equipment in new warehouse

I have used Ubiquiti products for a couple years now and really like them. I generally use the UniFi AP AC LRs in wireless applications. I have a customer building a new warehouse that is 250' by 200', so 50,000 square feet. The ceilings are about 40' high and the warehouse will be fairly wide open. There will be no racks going to the ceiling. They manufacture glass and do have some large pieces that may go up to about 15' in stands but that will be about as high as anything goes. There is an office area in one of the corners that is 80'x60', so 4800 square feet. A single AP LR strategically placed in the office should cover the office area. My thought was to place 3 more AP LRs evenly spaced in the open area to cover the rest of the building. Plan is to hard wire each one. Is it OK to mount them close to the 40' ceiling or is that too high? Does anyone have any experience with a similar setup? Does this sound like it would be sufficient or do I need more APs? Or is there something else that would do a better job in this situation? Any thoughts or feedback will be greatly appreciated.

No shelving but there will be some storage racks that go up to about 15" high with very large sheets of glass on them. Not many of these though. For the most part it will be fairly wide open. Don't have any pics because I haven't even been over there yet and it isn't done. I will be going tomorrow but don't think current pics would be helpful.

Hello @AtoZPC,

 

Could you add those shelves to the floorplan?

I know I'm not being very helpful (if at all) and appreciate you trying to help me but I really don't know yet. I am meeting a manager onsite tomorrow and will talk to him and see if I can get more details for you.
