Even with all the sophisticated computerized design tools available to us, it still comes down to having a broad base of application knowledge and extensive experience developing appropriate solutions for space and productivity problems. Our experienced team of Design Consultants have been trained as application specialists to understand the unique storage and productivity challenges faced by their assigned client group.
We encourage our clients to get our design team involved early in the planning stage of a project. We will work directly with the client as well as the architect, contractor and engineer to ensure that all critical aspects of the project are discussed and addressed.
By getting involved early, we can identify and address important considerations unique to high-density storage:
• Floor loading
• Building codes related to storage
• ADA requirements
• Fire and life safety requirements
Addressing these issues early in the project will avoid delays and reduce costs.
The compelling benefit of high-density storage is the ability to compact stored materials into a much smaller footprint space. This can result in higher load concentrations in the area where the storage system is installed.
Particularly on upper floor installations, it is important to ensure that the structural design of the building will accommodate the storage system.
McMurray Stern can provide structural evaluation services through a Licensed Structural Engineer. The engineer can determine the seismic anchoring requirements for the equipment as well as performing floor load calculations to determine if any structural reinforcement of the building is required.
While our competitors subcontract their installation services, our installation and service team members are all full-time McMurray Stern employees.
We employ only factory trained and certified installation and service technicians. They work closely with your Design Consultant from the beginning of a project to ensure a successful installation.
If you’re moving, and you’re planning to take your existing equipment with you, McMurray Stern can help. We can meet with you to survey your existing equipment and determine the most efficient way to move it. We can then perform the actual system move and re-install the equipment at your new location. Our factory-trained installers will also provide you with a new warranty for your relocated equipment.
McMurray Stern can also perform relocation of files, books, media and other stored materials. Our experienced project team will work closely with you to ensure that your materials arrive safely at your new facility on time and in proper order.
