Mobile Filing Shelves at Toronto Law

TORONTO LAW FIRM CREATES AN OPEN OFFICE CONCEPT WITH MOBILE FILING SHELVES

Thousands of inefficiently stored case files were creating a serious problem for a law firm in Toronto. The limitations of the law firm’s lateral filing cabinet drawers made it hard to store the large case files. As a result, they were stored in such a way that made it virtually impossible to find the right one without taking them all out and putting them all back in again. This led to plenty of wasted time and a very inefficient environment.

A MORE EFFICIENT MOBILE FILING SYSTEM

Employees needed to have quick, easy access to files and a more organized system needed to be put into place. In addition to organization, the law firm also wanted to create a more modern, aesthetically pleasing environment as well.

Based on referrals from other law firms in the area, the firm reached out to Spacesaver Solutions. Our Storage Expert surveyed the space, assessed the type and size of case files being stored, and created a storage solution that would increase capacity for file storage as well as space for other functions of the business, including additional office spaces for lawyers, attorneys and other employees.

Our Storage Expert designed a custom cabinet that would be used to store case files. The cabinet has six shelves, all designed to be the correct height for storing files, binders, and boxes at the same time without any need for adjustments. Unlike traditional cabinets, the center support frame was removed allowing staff to fully utilize each shelf.

MOBILE FILING SHELVES DOUBLE THE AMOUNT OF FILES IN THE SAME SPACE

To eliminate case files being buried within shelves and impossible to find, Spacesaver Solutions installed bi-file mobile filing shelves. The new systems allowed two rows of filing equipment to be placed in nearly the same footprint.

The front shelf sections rest on a mobile carriage that travels back and forth, and the movement allows easy access to the back row of static shelving. With this system, the files are more compact and out of the way, yet offer 100% accessibility to any file that an employee would want or need to access.

MULTIPLE DEPARTMENTS ARE ABLE TO USE THE MOBILE FILING SHELVING SYSTEM

File storage was further compacted through the use of three mechanical-assist mobile systems, which were installed to store records in the Accounting, Records, and Minute Book departments. In addition, one of the systems housed an elaborate legal library. Combined, the mobile systems held the entire collection of records and library materials while leaving space for future growth.

To aid with matching the mobile systems to the look and overall feel of the office, the mobile systems were outfitted with custom dual-entry wood veneer end-panels.

MORE PRODUCTIVE AND EFFICIENT WORK ENVIRONMENT BECAUSE OF MOBILE FILING SHELVES

With the newly organized mobile shelving solution, the law firm’s staff was more efficient and productive because the daily obstacle of locating files was eliminated. Due to the ease of navigation and less cluttered space, the employees were very pleased with the overall look and feel of their redesigned work environment.

Evidence Storage At Toronto Law Firm

Evidence Storage At Toronto Law Firm

TEMPORARY EVIDENCE STORAGE GETS A SECURE OVERHAUL AT TORONTO LAW FIRM

Everyone knows that law enforcement agencies are responsible for preserving and securing thousands of pieces of evidence. However, most people never think about law firms and their responsibility for preserving the chain of custody. While law firms and litigators don’t store evidence long-term, they can hold it for short periods of time while working through their cases.

Law firms have a responsibility to ensure that evidence isn’t lost or tampered with, and are held accountable for the security of evidence to maintain the integrity of the case.

TEMPORARY EVIDENCE STORAGE FOR CONFIDENTIAL CLIENT INFORMATION

A law firm in Toronto that handles many high-profile cases needed a more secure evidence storage solution in their office. After all, if the security and integrity of their evidence was questioned, it could lead to doubts about their own integrity and weaken their cases in court. They also wanted their clients to rest assured that their confidential information was being protected properly.

COMPACT AND SECURE TEMPORARY EVIDENCE STORAGE LOCKERS

With very little space to install updated evidence storage in the law firm, they reached out to Rob McClelland at Spacesaver Solutions to see if he could help design a system that was compact and secure. Working with the law firm, Rob decided that evidence lockers were the perfect temporary evidence storage solution.

With tamper-proof locking doors and all-steel construction, the evidence lockers added a new layer of security to give the law firm and their clients peace of mind. Rather than a bank of standard lockers, the new system included multiple sizes of lockers to accommodate a variety of evidence – from files to boxes to bagged items – in a smaller space.

LAW FIRM KEEPS TRUST OF CLIENTS WITH TEMPORARY EVIDENCE LOCKERS

With the new lockers, the chain of custody control for evidence now goes through one designated employee at the law firm who deposits and removes all evidence to ensure that every item is accounted for. The doors are only accessible from one side to ensure that no evidence has been tampered with.

The law firm was so happy with the results of the first project that they installed more lockers on other floors of their office. They can now rest easy maintaining the trust of clients and the court, knowing that their evidence storage is secure, organized, and compact.
