If you knew how bright you wanted it(in Foot Candles) and which fixture I could do a quick lighting design for you.

for example, if you want 30FC with this fixture you would need 9 fixtures:

If you bump it up to the 135W version you'd just need 6 fixtures.

FWIW, 30FC is on the high end of what most commercial warehouses are designed for. 40-50FC is office lighting and I've seen a lot of manufacturing in that range or even lower. For very detailed work you might want 100FC. But I think if you went 30 and then added a couple of low hanging strip lights over work tables/areas you would be good.
