Designing a System From a Clean Slate

The large majority of our projects are in buildings with existing structures and equipment and we need to work around the current layout. On occasion we have the pleasure of getting involved with a customer who is just taking over an empty building. This gives us a clean slate and a great opportunity to use our creative design talents to provide  a new system that is both wanted and needed, without any restrictions on the layout.

We had such an opportunity with a Marine Corps base in the southern United States. They were just moving into a new warehouse that was completely empty. The customer contacted us to help them determine what needed to be built and how it should be laid out. We worked with the Corps to analyze their operational and storage requirements.  From that point we went to designing an optimized material handing system that would meet their exact specifications.

It was determined that the customer would require a mezzanine, wire enclosures, pallet rack, bulk rack, and shelving in order to fully utilize their new warehouse. We found an efficient layout that the customer liked and went to work. When the project was finished, the customer had a beautifully furnished warehouse that met all of their needs. The customer was very pleased with the result.

This project really embraces our philosophy of “One Project, One Vendor.” Many material handling companies cannot offer larger scope projects including design and installation, but American Warehouse Systems was created to supply complete turn-key material handling solutions from concept to completion.  In addition, the customer only had one point of contact, which made coordination much simpler and we were able to handle all their needs beyond their expectations.
