Why Off-Site Storage?

Prestigious Institutions, Public Safety Departments, Museums, and many more industries have chosen high-bay for their off-site locations for many reasons. In urban settings, limited space prevents expansion, while adjacent lots might be costly. Institutions situated in historic or architectural buildings choose off-site options to avoid compromising their aesthetic charm. Learn how off-site storage facilities can provide a comprehensive, long-term solution to your institution’s storage concerns.

Real Life Situations – Education

The Western Michigan University Archive Storage is a prime example.

"Having all of the collections under one roof seemed to make a great deal of sense. It also made a great deal of economic sense for the university, because they were maintaining some very outdated buildings.”

-Sharon Carlson, Archives and Regional History Collections Western Michigan University

A new Collections Center was built like nothing the campus has seen before; no wood-paneled shelves, no green-shaded lamps, and no rolling ladders. Documents now can be stacked as high as three stories in high-bay systems, with shelves stretching from floor to ceiling. This new high-bay storage solution allows Western Michigan University to work with researchers and provide quick, easy access to materials in a well-organized shelving structure.

Real Life Cases – Public Safety

Evidence accumulates year after year which leads to unnecessary storage problems. Volusia County Sheriff’s Office Evidence Facility typically takes on 20,000 evidentiary items EVERY year.

Knowing Spacesaver is the industry leader in high-bay shelving, the project planning team called on their local Spacesaver consultant for assistance. They worked together for the next four years to design a high-bay shelving system, along with a variety of other solutions, to help keep evidence organized and secure.

The result is an end-to-end evidence storage and retrieval system that helps ensure that evidence is secure, and justice is served. The fully optimized storage facility also has plenty of room to grow in the future, and the Sheriff’s Office has maintained its CALEA accreditation.

Real Life Cases – Library

When the time came to consider expanding its off-site facility, The University of Calgary arrived at a new approach. The design team wanted to push beyond the concept of a typical off-site “warehouse” model to consolidate vital services and better integrate with on-campus services.

To achieve these goals, the University of Calgary added to its original high-bay facility. One addition featured Spacesaver XTend® Mobile High-Bay Storage Systems to keep materials organized and protected, and the other featured office space and work areas.

In the end, the expanded facility shows how a modern university can care for and share its collections in a way that best serves the academic community now and into the future.
