Project Description

Client:   Not disclosed by client
Location:   Melbourne
Surface Area:   10,000+ Pallet Position
Year Completed:   2019
A large distribution centre fit-out with pallet racking storing over 10,000 pallets.

The Challenges

Project: Warehouse storage optimisation design and pallet racking installation.

Client Brief:

The client was moving into a new warehouse and wanted to take the opportunity to optimise their storage capacity at their new location. This was going to be a large move as the client had more than 10,000 pallet positions that need to be designed and accommodated for. The client also wanted to install a new pallet racking system rather than relocate what they were using at their old premises.  This was an opportunity to start fresh with a brand new warehouse optimised for the client’s specific use.

Scope of Works:

– Warehouse Storage Optimisation Design:

  • Designed an optimised layout plan for over 10,000 pallet positions;
  • Recommended a unique racking design using ColbyRack with the first beam level at 3m high to allow for a double-stacked pallet on the ground;
  • Recommended matching MHE to suit the aisle widths and racking heights and accessibility.

– Pallet Racking Supply and Installation:

  • ColbyRack, made in Australia with Australian steel, was supplied as it is superior in terms of strength and could deliver appropriate certification for the unique racking design.

– Outcomes:

  • The ColbyRack solution worked well, not only for the loads it was required to hold, but also for the height.
  • Another large project successfully delivered – a 10,000+ pallet position installation using ColbyRack, manufactured in Sydney, Australia, using Australian steel.
