Problem: The fire department needed to be able to simulate real-life scenarios as accurately as possible in order to effectively train their new and seasoned fire fighters in controlled rescue drills. This structure also needed to be tough enough to withstand extended exposure to the elements.
Solution: An Industrial Structures platform was built 15’ above the ground to simulate basket-type rescues. It easily sustained the weight of helicopter weighed down with equipment and a full crew. It was built to seismic zone 4 compliance, and its galvanized finish was hardy enough to withstand the elements. Also, because its double stairway access was big enough to allow fire fighters to haul all the necessary equipment, and a cantilever allowed the helicopter to overhang, real-life scenarios were effectively duplicated.
Benefits: This structure allowed rescuers to practice their drills in a secured and controlled environment, preventing them from having to move indoors and affording them the highest levels of safety.
Government Treatment Plant, Deluxe
Client: A Southeastern Treatment Plant
Problem: Expansion and growth of sewage treatment facilities required new maintenance methods to efficiently deploy personnel and resources.
Solution: Bin Unit Shelving was installed to consolidate the central warehouse. Everything is tagged, counted, and easily located.
Benefits: New construction costs estimated at $500,000-$750,000 were avoided. Inventory was better controlled and the available storage space was used more efficiently, eliminating obsolete inventory. Travel to the warehouse by craftsmen in the field was greatly reduced. Employees now spend less time at the issue counter, and paperwork has been eliminated, with an estimated savings of $6 per transaction.
Police Department Storage, Pacific
Client: A Southern California Police Station
Problem: After forty years in the same building with more than one hundred employees over capacity, this police department was overcrowded. After completely running out of space, they were given the funding to build a new facility.
Solution: After significant research, a state-of-the-art property and evidence room that features a unique Pacific Closed and Bin Unit storage system was designed and installed. Closed Unit systems are also used throughout the department to store arrest and case records, and another custom system for personnel files.
Benefits: The police department saved an enormous amount of space in their new building, thus improving their work efficiency and leaving more space for personnel.
