New warehouse storage systems for a modular housing developer

 

Stelling Properties Limited was in need of a fast and efficient solution following the acquisition of a new contract, in order to optimise their storage capacity and materials flow at their factory based in Micheldever, Hampshire. Our initial contact with the company began back in March, when Operations Manager, Charlotte Kennedy, whom SEC had previously worked with at another company, got in touch to discuss requirements for a new storage system.

 

Stelling Properties manufactures state-of-the-art, modular housing systems, which are primarily installed into properties such as student accommodation units and hotels. They manage everything in-house, from land acquisition to off-site manufacture, allowing them to be agile and responsive in everything that they do.

 

Their existing storage setup was based on a bulk stacking method, and although it was handled by a highly-experienced materials handling team, it was not conducive to their agile and responsive workflow. And so, a new storage solution was needed, and one that would have to be turned around as quickly as possible, due to Stelling Properties having a small window of opportunity to deliver the works during a production stop in between contracts.

A mixture of racking solutions helps  to optimise materials flow

 

Following a site survey by Project Salesman, Damian Chudleigh-Smith, it was found that the best solution for our client would be a combination of racking systems, including adjustable pallet racking and cantilever racking in order to enhance storage capacity, moving away from the company's previous bulk storage setup.

 

The adjustable pallet racking is designed to hold various construction materials, including palletised sheet metals, plasterboards and more, whilst the new cantilever racking has been designed to store steel lengths. The positioning of the racking around the outer perimeter of the factory - and in close proximity to the production floor - makes it very easy for workers to pick the materials and transport them into the nearby manufacturing zones, ensuring our client continues to meet their 14-day construction turnover for each module.

 

Overall, the works have been well received by the client, and discussions continue between ourselves and Stelling Properties in regards to the further optimisation of the warehouse, which we look forward to developing.
