Verplas Limited – Warehouse Redesign
Brief: Complete survey of existing layout, CAD designs, of which there were several revisions. Site management and installation all to our very high standards.
Duration: 2 weeks on site (plus drawing work)
We worked closely with the Continuous Improvement Manager, to produce a solution that worked for them to streamline and improve their warehouse to enable a more efficient production process. We worked on various schemes and layouts, producing drawings to be discussed with the operators and management, this process went on for over a year to get this just right
The existing Pallet racking was too narrow and did not make the best use of the space available.
To redesign the warehouse to create a more efficient workplace, with all racking to be the correct size and fit for purpose.
To use as much of the existing racking as possible, bearing in mind the several different racking systems currently in place.
We designed a racking layout utilising one type of their existing racking, splicing extra height as necessary and adding new materials to create uniformed runs of racking that could be interchangeable for future changes. We managed the project by working with the customer’s need to keep the warehouse open and production functioning. Phasing the job to avoid too much disruption in the day to day running of the company
