Distribution Centre in the South East for a National Stationery Supplier Nears Completion
As part of Teccon's largest individual project to date our teams have been working round the clock and are nearing completion almost two weeks early on the first of two UK distribution centres.
These distribution centres, located in the South East and the Midlands and consist of 3 warehouses, making the management of the project that little bit more difficult.
What we're doing
In total, the storage project will consists of more than 3300 sq metres of a two tier mezzanine floor, a single tier mezzanine floor, over 3000 bays of industrial shelving, 300 bays of pallet racking and alterations to a 8000 pallet racking system.
What it means for them
Working in partnership with the customer's Logistics Manager, in line with their expansion plans and their need to hold a greater range of stock nationally, this carefully timed project has been completed while maintaining the warehouse's operational capacity. The South East Distribution Centre will house 750 bays of industrial shelving on a single tier mezzanine floor which in turn is situated over multiple docking stations. Locating the mezzanine and the shelving above the otherwise unused and dead space has increased the warehouse's storage capacity and has avoided the need to build a warehouse extension or move to larger premises.
Completion of this warehouse storage project 2 weeks ahead of schedule, while also allowing the carefully co-ordinated concurrent works at their Midlands Distribution Centre to start, was only possible through close and open communication with the client.
As well as giving you an insight into our processes we aim to demonstrate the customer's ongoing confidence in Teccon's ability to deliver projects on time and to budget, underlining our competence as a leading provider of storage solutions throughout the industry, from consultation through to installation.
