Flexible storage solutions for the accommodation of multiple clients
Following a detailed warehouse appraisal from SEC's Project Director, Gary Kirk, it was found that due to ILG's requirement to store a wide mix of client SKUs (stock keeping units), including garments, small boxes and larger, palletised goods, that a mixture of systems, including standard pallet racking and a mezzanine floor would help to create the best storage setup in this scenario.
In order to prepare the site for the primary phase of works, SEC made allowances to dismantle multiple bays of existing pallet racking, to be later reconfigured into a new setup; putting recycled materials to good use. Once this was complete, the warehouse floor was then ground down using a diamond grind process and re-painted to give it a glossy, smooth finish. Remedial works, including the painting of the warehouse walls were also undertaken, smartening up the appearance of the overall facility.
Once the new pallet racking zone had been erected, SEC then looked to install a mezzanine floor complete with a mixture of shelving and garment hanging solutions. Two pick and pack zones were also established within the facility; one being located underneath the new mezzanine, whilst the other was positioned next to the new pallet racking zone, allowing for the easy access and processing of goods in their respective zones.
Overall, the fit-out of this new facility has provided ILG with a truly flexible storage setup that is capable of fulfilling various client contracts along with the ability to offer next day delivery moving forward.
