The challenge

The customer had decided the best option for their facility would be a new picking system. Before they could install this, they needed their existing tower removed whilst keeping business open as usual.

Our solution

After speaking to the client and understanding their need for minimal interruption to business, our dilapidations team were tasked with removing the pick tower whilst the remaining site was operational and fully staffed. We had to be mindful that the site was still active and make sure our procedures were in accordance with health and safety regulations.

We worked efficiently and skillfully to strip out their system without fuss, allowing staff to continue working with minimal disruptions to their day-to-day operations.

We were able to double the space by installing Mezzanine floors. The new zones were constructed using Double Skin Steel partitioning – a fast and efficient way to create a new separate space within a workplace of this type.
