Client: Ascent Media
Type of works: design and manufacture of a film tape archive, comprising Deltastor shelving on Maxistor bases.
The brief was to enable the storage of up to 800,000 video tapes for a wide variety of clients. The project involved part-building a new tape library to accommodate the existing capacity. Once this was completed, the client was able to move the existing video library to its new location, enabling Compact Storage to strip down the existing mobile shelving and mobile bases, reusing many of the components in the completion of the next phases of work.
Phases 3, 4 and 5 were built with consideration for the day-to-day operational needs of the client. The completed installation has converted a rundown basement area of the building into a state-of-the-art tape library, located in Central London, servicing a multitude of TV studios on a daily basis.
This project was completed on time and within budget and continues a very successful relationship with the client, which is now in its 8th year.
