Warehouse Fit Out – Mezzanine floors, racking and shelving solutions were the order of the day when existing client Winstanleys had run out of warehouse space.

Due to Winstanley Pramworld’s ongoing success it needed to relocate from it’s existing warehouse to a much larger site so as to accommodate its increased volumes of products and protect its future expansion plans.

Spaceway have had a long standing working relationship with the Winstanley family and recently fitted out a new warehouse for Winstanley Bikes and therefore were called in to look at this new project.

The brief was to come up with a storage solution that utilised the available space within the building and maximising the operational efficiencies. Spaceway, through regular site meetings worked with Winstanley’s came up with a design to accommodate all their requirements..

The first part of the project was the installation of a two tier mezzanine floor so as to use the height within the building, this provided an additional 862m2 of floor space. Due to the area of the floor and in line with building regulations fire protection was fitted, this included suspended ceilings and column casings to give a one hour protection to the main structure. Spaceway also designed and installed a lighting system to suit which included for emergency lights and alarm.

The final element of the works which was vital to the overall operation to move products between the floors was to install two interfloor conveyors, these were fitted with intelligent controls that enabled products to not only feed both floors but accumulate products on the conveyors so a single indivdual could operate the system.
