Case study: WSS fits out new racking solution for Mawdsley Brooks

Case study: WSS fits out new racking solution for Mawdsley Brooks

Warehouse Storage Solutions (WSS) was approached by Mawdsley Brooks to tender for a complete fit out of their new 180,000sq ft distribution premises in Doncaster.

The tender involved installing 14,414 VNA (Very Narrow Aisle) pallet locations 12,472 wide aisle pallet locations into the temperature controlled warehouse.

The project also included installing 1,794 wide aisle pallet locations into a controlled drug area, 294 pallet locations into a fridge and 231 pallet locations into a quarantine area.

The main challenge that was faced with this project was to design the racking within the controlled drug store that consisted of a metal box at 40,000mm long x 18,000mm deep to store certain drugs. Next to the controlled drug store Warehouse Storage Solutions was challenged with designing a secure store that consisted of a full mesh enclosure including a mesh roof. Along with all the pallet racking and mesh enclosures WSSL was tasked with all the rack protection and end barriers.

The final part of the project was to complete a full office design and fit out. The works included installing new kitchens to the ground and first floors, board room, individual offices, male and female changing rooms, open plan offices, canteen and 5 warehouse offices.
