Project Description

The Challenge

When École Racette in St. Paul was undergoing a renovation, they knew they had to maximize capacities for four storage rooms: Gym, Band, Textbook, and the Staff work room. They wanted to have everything organized to streamline workflow, control access, and safely store equipment. Ideally they would have some versatility so they could re-configure the systems as needed, while having a complete and finished look.

The Solution

Our storage expert got involved early and suggested some concepts for the rooms that would achieve their goals. For each of the storage rooms, we suggested Mizer Mobile Systems mounted with rivited shelving. Mizer compact shelving saved around 50% of the floor space, and the shelving is an extremely versatile, bolt-free line that snaps together and can be re-configured when needed. We finished the systems with end panels to match the doors and trim around the school, giving them a finished, cohesive appearance. Staff at the school are so happy with the investment that they’re recommending McLennan & Company to work on another school’s text book storage room, and have offered to show their new systems to any other schools looking to maximize their storage space.

“The mobile storage units provided by McLennan & Company exceeded our expectations. From design to installation Foothills was professional, punctual and very easy to work with. Their Storage Systems Consultant took the necessary time to listen to our needs, document the appropriate measurements and come up with a solution for several different applications that will greatly assist our staff in their day to day work.”
