Whether it’s storing PE equipment, text books or drama props, schools require storage facilities for a wide variety of items in many different departments. A new school in Bristol, built as part of the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) scheme, required shelving to be installed in 28 different locations. It was crucial that each installation maximised the available space and that the entire project was completed promptly so the school could be ready for the new term. Action Storage’s combination of its modular Supershelf™ shelving system and expertise in managing large scale projects helped to ensure the installation project was a success.
The Bristol school required the shelving to be installed in a variety of storage room areas, with careful planning needed for each one. Thanks to its expertise in assessing how to maximise storage space and the versatility of its Supershelf™ stockroom shelving system, Action Storage was able to provide an optimised storage arrangement for each location.
Supershelf™ is an easily adjustable, modular shelving system that can be customised to suit the available space in any stockroom or storage area. It can be supplied in a variety of sizes and configurations, and its bolt free construction enables it to be easily adjusted to suit the items being stored, whether it’s PE equipment or text books.
Another vital part of the installation was that the steel shelving had to be installed promptly so the school could open on schedule. Further complexity was added by simultaneous installation projects and construction work also taking place on site.
Thanks to the high stock levels stored in its Milton Keynes based warehouse, Action Storage was able to quickly deliver the required Supershelf™ shelving equipment in less than 7 working days. The experience of its in-house installation team, in managing large scale installation projects, also helped to avoid any potential problems from the amount of onsite activity. Action Storage was able to install the Supershelf™ shelving in all 28 different locations on schedule, enabling the new Bristol school to open on time for pupils at the start of the new term.
The Building Schools for the Future (BSF) scheme aims to rebuild or refurbish all 3500 state secondary schools in England by 2020. So far 80 new schools have been opened and another 70 refurbished and reopened. Due to its long standing relationship with the education and public sector, Action Storage is expected to be involved in improving the storage facilities for many more schools through the scheme.
