Southern based Timber and Builders Merchants Sydenhams £600,000 investment on their 4.5 acre site in Wickham Hampshire incorporated a newly built 1300 sq metre timber shed which was completed and fully functional within 6 months of first digging soil.
The Wickham site – which is a Milling, Manufacturing and Design facility as well as providing the services of a more traditional branch, is responsible for producing I-beams, Trussed rafters and Easi-joists.
The new shed replaced an existing building that had seen better days and had typically been used for bulk storage of timber packs. This in itself, had been a limiting factor for the business in terms of selectivity, stock rotation and damage to products.
The installation consisted of two single-sided runs, 24 metres long, positioned on the perimeter walls, with 3 double-sided runs 18 metres long, separated by 4-metre aisles allowing generous access for the multi-directional and side loading trucks.
This project is in addition to the other Cantilever Racking installations that Stakapal have previously installed at the Wickham site. These include : an external system complete with canopy roof, and other internal racks that assist the manufacturing operation directly.
