Highland Council

CSI provide bespoke storage solution for Highland Council’s new Occupational Therapy Resource Centre.

The Highland Council is the local governmental body for the Highland region of Scotland. Created by the Local Government (Scotland) Act of 1973, it is the largest local government area in the UK, serving 232,000 people over 11,838 square miles.

Highland Council were building a new Occupational Therapy Resource Centre and needed help with designing and installing a new stores area within the facility that would effectively maximise the available space. CSI made direct contact with the architect who was designing the building and after receiving specifications, tendered for and secured the project by offering the best competitive price.

There were a variety of different items to be stored, and space was also limited, with the layout of the system having to take account of the columns and structural features of the building. To compensate for this, CSI worked with the building specifications provided by the architect and designed several different layouts of the proposed system. Highland Council then chose the layout they felt best benefitted their workflow and storage requirements.

Dexion Longspan Shelving was selected for its custom capabilities, high load capacity and its ability to store items of varying widths and depths. The final installation provided Highland Council with three different longspan systems, all of differing widths and depths to suit the items stored and of differing dimensions to flushly fit the available space. A total of 65 bays of shelving were installed to provide 750 linear metres of storage.
