École Racette

, ,

When École Racette in St. Paul was undergoing a renovation, they knew they had to maximize capacities for four storage rooms: Gym, Band, Textbook, and the Staff work room. They wanted to have everything organized to streamline workflow, control access, and safely store equipment. Ideally they would have some versatility so they could re-configure the systems as needed, while having a complete and finished look.

Major General Griesbach

, ,

When the Major General Griesbach School was being built, they installed mill worked shelves for the new gymnasium storage. They thought it would provide sufficient space for their sports equipment but when it came time to use the storage, they found it simply wasn’t enough and they didn’t have clearance to fit their ball bins in underneath. Overall it fell short of their needs. They were already jammed for space, and they knew they had to address it to ensure safe, speedy and efficient access. They needed something compact and versatile.

Art Storage VS Learning Space

, ,

An Alberta School was looking for ways to create a break-out space for student learning. Expansion of the facility was not an option, and the existing space was already at capacity. They were conflicted with the storage space they had- on one hand storing art supplies was important. On the other hand, they felt they had to prioritize learning space. There did not seem to be a solution.

Gym Storage

, ,

A Southern Alberta high school was out of space for their sports equipment in the gymnasium. The overflow of equipment was posing a significant safety risk to staff and students, and the disorganization made access extremely inefficient, wasting valuable learning time. The storage room had nowhere to expand, and re-purposing another room was out of the question as space was at a premium already.

School Shop Supplies

, ,

A High School was low on space and needed to store shop supplies in an accessible, limited footprint. The supplies were an important resource for the courses and had to be secured, and accessible on demand when classes required them. The ceiling in the storage space presented a challenge because there were low hanging bulk heads that had to be cleared by the mobile system.

Ambrose University College

, ,

The Ambrose University College had an extensive collection of learning materials: one hundred and sixty thousand volumes and counting. They had to share a fifteen thousand square foot space with over two-hundred study carrels and all related administrative offices. The volume of learning materials alone was too great to fit into the space with conventional shelving. Expansion of the building was far too costly, and moving the study areas and offices away from the library would cause even more challenges, costing more money and stifling workflow.

University of Northern BC

, ,

The Geoffrey R. Weller Library on the beautiful UNBC campus was rapidly running out of space to store their journal collection. They were forced to think outside the box, as a costly expansion was not a viable solution, and off-site storage would limit access and hinder workflow. They had already invested in the static shelving that was in use, so spending additional money on replacement shelving would be costly and wasteful.

Calgary College Bookstore

, ,

A Calgary College was undergoing a major renovation and expansion project. A new bookstore was a vital part of the plan, and would serve as a learning resource to students and a revenue generator for the college. The store would not only carry texts books and supplies, but also college branded clothing, mugs, plush mascots, and more. To make the best use of the space long-term, they required as much flexibility as possible while still offering an attractive retail shelving display of merchandise.

University of Saskatchewan

, , ,

The University of Saskatchewan was undertaking renovations to improve their facility, and they needed to make the best use of the renewed space. The plan was to condense multiple laboratory storage rooms into a centralized location, making the storage more efficient, accessible, and more secure. The nature of what was being stored, lab supplies, tools, gear, and more, demanded that any mobile system have controlled speed and compacted aisle size.
