Tamarack Lumber High Density Storage and Lockers

Tamarack Lumber High Density Storage and Lockers

Organized Office with Mobile System and Employee Lockers

Tamarack Lumber has been offering first class service to customers since 1973. They have an outstanding selection of products covering 35 acres, including a Truss Manufacturing Plant, a Retail Store, a Corporate Office, and enough lumber and plywood to supply any construction site.

TAMARACK NEEDED HELP MANAGING FILES AND COMPLYING WITH RETENTION POLICY

In their new corporate office, Tamarack Lumber needed help storing and managing their files, and complying with their retention policy of keeping files for 7 years. They also wanted to increase security for their HR and client files in their new space.

In their lunchroom, Tamarack needed a place for employees to store their personal belongings while at work. So they reached out to the experts at Spacesaver Solutions Inc. for help.

High Density System and Employee Lockers Maximize Storage, Organize Files, and Secure Belongings

Our Storage Experts designed two storage solutions that would allow Tamarack Lumber to store their materials more strategically, manage the security of their files, create visual solutions to apply retention policies, and securely store employees’ personal belongings.

The powered high density mobile system stores the company’s HR, AR, and AP files along with other materials. When staff need to access an aisle, they simply press the “move” button on the touchscreen and the correct aisle opens up. For added security, the touchscreens on restricted aisles require a passcode before the carriages will move and allow access. This ensures that only authorized staff are able to access the sensitive information stored within.

Located in the lunchroom, we designed 56 employee day use lockers to store their personal belongings. The lockers are operated with a combination lock so staff don’t have to worry about managing lost or stolen keys. The new lockers help tidy up the lunch area making it a great place for staff to take a break and enjoy their lunches.

Staff at Tamarack Lumber are thrilled with their new storage solutions. They can now better manage the security of their files, improve their records management processes, and increase capacity with room to grow.

“Our smart storage and retrieval solution makes a smooth day!”

ATHLETIC STORAGE SOLUTIONS FOR TORONTO RAPTORS TRAINING FACILITY

The Toronto Raptors are Canada’s basketball team. Since their start in 1995, they have won six division titles, made the playoffs 11 times, and won the 2019 NBA Championship! While they play their games at the Scotiabank Arena, they spend most of their time training at the OVO Athletic Centre.

CUSTOM DESIGNED STORAGE SOLUTIONS PROTECT PLAYERS’ ATHLETIC EQUIPMENT

Opened in February 2016, the OVO Athletic Centre is 68,000 sq ft. The facility has two full size basketball courts, locker rooms, training and medical facilities, player amenities, and storage areas for their equipment.

When the OVO Athletic Facility was being built, our Storage Experts worked with the architects to design and plan the storage for the building. Working together, we created user friendly athletic storage solutions to securely store the team’s athletic wear, exercise equipment, and player’s personal belongings.

Storage Solution Includes Mobile Storage, Worktables, and A High Security Locker

We designed two high density storage systems, movable Rousseau worktables, and a secure locker to hold players’ valuables when training at the facility.

The first high density mobile system is powered. Located in the back storage area, the system stores the team’s jerseys, clothing, and other memorabilia. Staff simply press a button to move the large carriages and access the aisles.

Also located in the back storage area are two Rousseau worktables. These worktables feature stainless steel tops for durability, many doors and drawers for added storage, and are placed on castors to allow staff to move them to where they are most needed.

The second high density system is a mechanical assist system, located in the training area. Players simply turn the three spoke handles to access weights, jump ropes, exercise bands, foam rollers, and other miscellaneous exercise equipment.

Lastly, we designed a high security locker usually used in police departments to store players’ valuables while they are working out in the training area. The locker features multiple bins and pull out drawers to securely store a variety of items.

“The Raptors love their Spacesaver storage solution!”

Assistant Equipment Manager

Bertrand Russell Archives Storage

Bertrand Russell Archives Storage

NEW LIBRARY SHELVING SHOWCASES AND PROTECTS ARCHIVES FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS

In 1968 McMaster University Library acquired the archives and personal library of famed British philosopher, social and peace activist, and Nobel Laureate, Bertrand Russell. It has since become one of their most heavily used research collections with scholars from all over the world coming to McMaster to use the archives in their research.

UNIVERSITY WORKS WITH LOCAL ARCHITECTS TO DESIGN A NEW STATE-OF-THE-ART FACILITY

In recognition of the 50th anniversary of McMaster’s acquisition of the Bertrand Russell Archives, the University worked with local architects to design a state-of-the-art facility to house the collection. The facility, located at the University’s Sterling Street entrance, was formerly a private residence that was fully renovated and converted in just nine months.

The most important part of the renovation was making sure that the archives were properly stored and protected, so they reached out to the experts at Spacesaver Solutions Inc. 

A HIGH DENSITY SYSTEM, WOOD-TEK SHELVING AND DAY USE LOCKERS PROTECT AND BEAUTIFULLY DISPLAY THE ARCHIVES

Our Storage Expert met with McMaster’s librarians to design a solution to safely house Bertrand Russell’s large and diverse archives and a significant collection of books and other published materials across three separate areas. We designed a mechanical assist high-density system, Wood-Tek 4-Post shelving, and Day Use Lockers.

The University converted what was once a garage into a secure, climate controlled room, and we installed a mechanical assist high density system with recessed rails. This system maximizes the storage space in the room while ensuring the archives are properly stored and preserved.

In the reading room and a display area, we installed Wood-Tek 4-Post shelving to beautifully house much of the book collection. This shelving is a unique blend of wood and steel, featuring a wood front for a classic look, and a non off gassing metal frame to protect the collection. The system is completely adaptable and adjusts to the Library’s changing needs as the collection grows.

For the security of the collection, the University Library’s requirements included a place for researchers to store their personal belongings while in the Archives, We designed a metal bodied locker system with high pressure laminate doors and Digilock Axis Locks. The locks can be programmed for each new person and reset for the next researcher when they’re finished.

The librarians and staff are thrilled with their new space and systems that protect and display their collection.

The University Library has worked with Spacesaver Solutions Inc. on a number of projects over the years, but the Bertrand Russell Archives was something special. We’re delighted with the results both in the traditional compact shelving and the public areas of the archives, where the Wood-Tek shelving and Day Use Lockers allow us to showcase and protect the collection for future generations of researchers.

Mobile Filing Shelves at Toronto Law

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.
