Client: Alexander Forbes Group Services
Type of works: design and manufacture of Deltastor shelving on Flexistor and Maxistor bases for file storage.
The brief was to design mobile storage systems to accommodate a wide range of files, both loose and in boxed form, in a new HQ buildin, including relocation and integration of existing storage systems from the previous HQ building. Detailed file audits were undertaken to fully understand the clients future needs, prior to the design of mobile systems. Compatibility with the new office furnishings, as well as ease of use for the staff, were important considerations for a flexible, accessible office space.
The use of Compact Storage's Flexistor relocatable mobile system was important to preempt future departmental moves that might require the use of the storage elsewhere. In addition, heavy-duty Maxstor mobile units were installed in the basement areas for bulkier, less active archive storage, where an uneven concrete floor required a more robust solution.
A continuing relationship, including ongoing servicing and maintenance of the original facility, has led to additional work being undertaken, both in the UK and Ireland.
