For example, the 400,000 square foot Guilford County Detention Center in Greensboro, NC took an innovative approach to make sure their new expansion would not waste its precious space.

The museum transformed into a sprawling beauty, covering 80,000 feet of space. The museum reopened on June 26, 2005 and faced some immediate spatial dilemmas....

Archaeology Storage

But also like most cliches, it is a prevailing axiom.  Whether you acknowledge this truism aloud or it hibernates in your subconscious, it is burrowing somewhere, innately luring us to museums of art, architecture, and other ancient wonders. When...

Three Challenges for the Decision Maker

When a business, law firm, athletic team, museum, or any entity stores stuff, they usually run into the same prevailing issues. Everything is so disorganized. We are running out of room. Our cabinets and shelves are filled to the brim and we don’t have room for any more. How are we supposed to move all this stuff into a new building? What can we do...

How Spacesaver’s® Digital Touchpad Saves Space

For years, one Local School Division in Calgary, Canada, kept its student records inside a wide variety of shelves, boxes, baskets and filing cabinets. The file population continued to grow, but the room didn’t. Security also became a problem because none of the equipment purchased over the years had ever been standardized, and keys became lost. Boxes were frequently moved to make room for other...

“SOPHISTICATED” SECURE LOCKER STORAGE

The adjective “sophisticated” is not a word that one might use when describing a basic storage application, such as a locker or a storage cabinet, but believe it or not there are actual storage requests that do demand a certain level of “sophistication”.
