Secondary School Containers for Archive and General Storage Case Study

Way back in October 2016 we received an enquiry from a secondary school in West Bromwich who were looking for a couple of secure storage units for archive and general storage. The school was having a massive refurb with new buildings being built for the 2017 school term. The containers needed to be installed just before the pupils went back to school. Lucy explains the job, and the steps we went to, to ensure our client was given the best possible service.

Case Study

Before Christmas 2016 I spoke with the client who was certain she would be ordering with Lion Containers Ltd as we gave a helpful proactive approach and supplied the most comprehensive quotation. We discussed the design of the units further and finalised the specification. The containers would be 20ft new (once shipped) green units, fitted with lighting, Grafo Therm and shelving. ?

For the doors we created an aperture and box frame, and installed 2 x standard insulated weatherproof personnel doors (W 910mm x H 2065mm including frame - with a 90 degree opening of 710mm). The doors had a 10 point locking system with a 5 pin anti-drill Euro profile cylinder and full door furniture. A tie back was included to avoid the door slamming, as well as a rain run-off strip above the door. The cargo doors were welded shut, this was because our client did not want to allow access from the side of the container, as that would leave people in the blast zone.

Case Study

Summary

As we knew the price increase was imminent we were able to advise our customers to buy early, and avoid the rise in price. It worked out significantly cheaper for the school to buy the containers early in March, and to pay the daily storage charge on the containers until they were ready for delivery in August. By doing this, we were able to convert the containers early so the school had their new stores ready and waiting for them.?
