Broward County’s Public Defenders had more case file letter legal containers (LLC) bankers boxes than it could store in its two file rooms. Its bankers boxes were stacked in the aisles and organized haphazardly - this lack of organization and efficiency created file retrieval and re-file problems for its file room staff. The Public Defender had too many files in too little space - so staff had to step around and over bankers boxes to find the box they were looking for. The Public Defender’s space was limited by panel system walls and obstructed with columns - Advanced Filing’s high-density mobile storage systems designers had to overcome the challenge laying out a storage system to maximize packing density in the Public Defenders unusual sized room that was filled to the brink with bankers’ boxes - And stay within the Public Defenders restricted budget
Advanced Filing designed a high-density rolling filing system, complemented by stationary shelving - both designed to store the Public Defenders bankers boxes. When a new high-density storage system proved too expensive for the Public Defenders budget, Advanced Filing sourced a used high-density storage system complimented by bankers box static shelving from SCL - its storage systems partner that specializes in re-purposing used high density rolling file systems and storage equipment. Working with SCL’s designer, Susan Lucas, Advanced Filing designed a high-density solution tailored to the Public Defender’s unique space. Advanced Filing’s team of professional installers then faced the challenge of how to install a high-density system in a tight space full of boxes with little room to stage and maneuver - so they unloaded, built shelving and then reloaded the bankers boxes in one fluid sequential pattern to overcome the lack of staging space. When Advanced Filing completed its installation - the Public Defender gained 50% more space for bankers’ boxes - this new space allowed the Public Defender to get all its bankers boxes off the floor and onto shelves. Instead of tripping over and walking around bankers boxes - the Public Defender’s staff had an organized system of storage with lots of empty shelf space to store new bankers boxes.
