Westfield London covers 43 acres in Shepherd's Bush and is the third largest shopping centre in the UK with 270 retailers covering 1.5 million sq ft and parking for 4500 cars!
EZR supplied stock racking solutions to 14 retailers at White City including garment hanging, shelving and pigeon holes. Mobile roller racking was used in many units to increase stock density and reduce rental costs.
The image below shows an application for a lingerie retailer storing over 50,000 hanging items.
With the cost of retail space close to £100 sq/ft it's vital that the back of house areas are well designed to accomodate the neccessary staff facilities and stock capacity.
The stock room is often overlooked and this space can sometimes be better utilised by increasing stock density. Reducing the stock room size can free up valuable floor space and generate additional retail space.
The photo below shows a roller racking system providing 1000 linear metres of shelving and pigeon holes for a leading fashion retailer.
Other solutions included shelving for several shoe retailers and application below that provided capacity for 6500 shoes boxes.
This shelving was fitted above and below a mezzanine floor that was used to make use of the available headroom.
A mobile roller racking system was fitted in a tiny stockroom of only 5m2 that provided shelving capacity of over 50 linear metres for clothing accessories.
