Spaceway's ability to provide a totally managed solution to the fitting out of greetings company, Carte Blanche Greetings, new warehouse in Chichester has ensured that the company's management has been able to focus on its core business. The Romsey based company has turned an existing warehouse structure into a versatile warehouse and production facility that enables Carte Blanche to cater for its expanding business.
Won on tender, Spaceway was awarded the contract for its competitive pricing and ability to provide a totally integrated solution, including project managing the fit out.
“Spaceway took over the whole project from beginning to end, which allowed me to concentrate on the business of running the existing warehouse operation”, said Fraser Nurse, Warehouse Manager at Carte Blanche Greetings.
To start the project, Spaceway's design team developed ways of maximising the 1500 square metre facility. This involved removing some existing walls and installing a 324 sq. metre FlooriTall mezzanine floor to provide Carte Blanche with an area for pricing, labelling and flow wrapping seasonal production projects.
To house the diverse range of Carte Blanche's products which includes greeting cards, soft toys and stationary, Spaceway chose Planned Storage Systems' Stronglock adjustable pallet racking which has been utilised to create 700 pallet locations. To complete the project, Spaceway installed a state-of-the-art hot air heating system and reconfigured and relocated an existing radiant heating to the roof of the building to provide heating to the mezzanine floor area. Finally electrics and lighting were installed throughout the warehouse and mezzanine area.
“We are delighted with the finished warehouse which is working really well,” concluded Fraser Nurse. “Spaceway has done an excellent job which was completed on time and within budget”.
