Our client needed to organize a new 300,000+ square foot facility efficiently to utilize bulk storage, pallet storage, and small part storage. In addition to the new areas, they needed to consolidate three older buildings into one.
Our project engineer provided turnkey intralogistics for the new facility, which included pallet rack, a free-standing platform, bulk shelving, rideable lift, and bulk cable layouts. From there, they provided the engineering, stamped PE drawing and calculations, and procurement of rack, platform, and lift permits. Engineering included everything from rack capacities and live loads on the platform, to the correct concrete footings for platform columns. A recessed concrete pit was poured for a flush transition between the warehouse floor and lift carriage. DAK provided the material, mechanical and electrical installations, on site fabrication, custom handrail and kickplate sections, welding, and passed city inspections. DAK also dismantled three former buildings full of pallet rack, shelving, cantilever, outdoor signs, and a rack supported mezzanine in 1.5 weeks.
This project resulted in over 4,000 pallet positions, a 4,400 sq. ft. platform for small part storage, a rideable material lift, shelving, and cable lines for bulk storage. The customer experienced 100% increased storage with ample ability to expand where necessary, as well as consolidating three buildings into one.
