Fife Council were consolidating their record management from various satellite locations. By having all the records management in one location, they saved time, improved security and were able to cut down travel costs.
We were required to construct secure box storage area to maximise storage capacity. After consultation with the records management team, plans were drawn up. A secure area was chosen within the Bankhead storage area.
Using the available height, we formed the area using high bay longspan shelving with timber decking and re-working existing pallet racking on site to give secure storage of over 20,000 boxes. To create the secure area, we used a mixture of mesh partitioning, anti-collapse mesh and electric roller shutter door.
A dedicated labelling system was supplied for easy box identification and easier record management retrieval for the client.
The council purchased a new forklift truck which the racking system was designed around.
