Post-COVID Campus Space Planning

Getting ready for a return to normal.

February 25th, 2021 - 2 min read

As campuses continue to navigate safety during a pandemic, they are designing and creating spaces that are more flexible and resilient. At the same time, staff at many campuses, particularly those with medical centers, are reacting to supply chain problems by keeping large quantities of PPE and cleaning supplies on hand.

You probably know that Spacesaver has been a trusted partner to universities for nearly 50 years, and we’ve tackled storage challenges from libraries to athletic equipment rooms. But did you know we can help you store more in storerooms, warehouses, and medical facilities, too? We can help out with COVID-related storage issues and optimize the space you have to keep everyone on campus safe and comfortable.

Take a look at how we can help you achieve your goals as you plan to return to normal post-COVID.

Increased Janitorial Support

Store more cleaning supplies and PPE on site in dorms, classroom buildings, campus fitness centers, and healthcare facilities — and keep even more bulk supplies on hand at campus warehouses.

Small high-density mobile systems increase storeroom storage capacity for gloves, masks, and cleaning supplies.

Hospitals & Clinics

Keep the focus on efficiency and patient care. Rolling shelves eliminate wasted aisle space and keep medical materials clean, organized, and secure.

Optimize space in cold storage for vaccines, biological samples, and test kits.
